Rh(III)-catalyzed C–H olefination of N-pentafluoroaryl benzamides using air as the sole oxidant

Author affiliations

Abstract

The oxidative olefination of a broad array of arenes and heteroarenes with a variety of activated and unactivated olefins has be achieved via a rhodium(III)-catalyzed C–H activation reaction. The use of an N-pentafluorophenyl benzamide directing group is crucial for achieving catalytic turnovers in the presence of air as the sole oxidant without using a co-oxidant.
