Cationic palladium(II) catalysis: C-H activation/Suzuki-Miyaura couplings at room temperature

J Am Chem Soc. 2010 Apr 14;132(14):4978-9. doi: 10.1021/ja910973a.


Cationic palladium(II) catalyst realized facile C-H activation of aryl urea with arylboronic acids at room temperature. This reaction is extremely mild to carry out aromatic C-H activations through electrophilic substitution.
