Copper-catalysed cross-coupling of arylzirconium reagents with aryl and heteroaryl iodides

Author affiliations

Abstract

An unprecedented CuI-catalysed cross-coupling of arylzirconium reagents with aryl and heteroaryl iodides is reported. Mechanistic studies with a Cp2ZrAr2 complex revealed that Cp2Zr(Ar)(Cl) is the reactive species that undergoes transmetalation with (PN-1)CuI. In addition, experiments with radical probes indicated that the reaction proceeds via a non-radical pathway.
