Chemoselectivity in the Cu-catalyzed O-arylation of phenols and aliphatic alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

An orthogonal set of Cu-catalysts for the selective mono-arylation of alkyl aryl diols using aryl iodides is presented. Picolinic acid ligated copper catalyst provided phenol O-arylation only, while alkyl aryl ethers are generated by ligand-free copper catalyst in the presence of 2 equivalents NaOt-Bu.
