Regioselective copper-catalyzed chlorination and bromination of arenes with O2 as the oxidant

Author affiliations

Abstract

Electron-rich aromatic C–H bonds undergo regioselective chlorination and bromination in the presence of CuX2, LiX (X = Cl, Br) and molecular oxygen. Preliminary mechanistic insights suggest that the bromination and chlorination reactions proceed by different pathways.
