Efficient indium-mediated dehalogenation of aromatics in ionic liquid media

Molecules. 2012 Dec 28;18(1):398-407. doi: 10.3390/molecules18010398.


An efficient indium-mediated dehalogenation reaction of haloaromatics and haloheteroaromatics in ionic liquids has been studied. This method is simple and effective in the presence of [bmim]Br. Furthermore, this methodology is environmentally friendly compared with conventional ones.
