UV-light promoted C–H bond activation of benzene and fluorobenzenes by an iridium(I) pincer complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Iridium(I) carbonyl complex [Ir(2,6-(PtBu2CH2)2C6H3)(CO)] undergoes reversible C–H bond activation of benzene and a series of fluorobenzenes on UV irradiation. Exclusive ortho-selectivity is observed in reactions of fluorobenzene and 1,2-difluorobenzene.
