A copper-catalyzed approach for the synthesis of N-aryl acridones via sp2 C–H bond amination using air as oxidant under neutral conditions is disclosed. This reaction not only provides a complementary method for synthesizing medicinally important acridones, but also offers a new strategy for sp2 C–H bond amination.
