Monoalkenylation of arene C–H bonds directed by an oxazoline group to afford bifunctional alkenes is described using [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 as the catalyst in the presence of 1,1′-binaphthyl-2,2′-diyl hydrogenphosphate (BNPAH) and of Cu(OAc)2·H2O under air. This reaction takes place under mild conditions in ethanol at 80 °C and tolerates the oxazoline function.

Functional resins have proven to be powerful synthetic tools that simplify purification, but traditional handling of these resins restricts their utility, as hazardous organic solvents are needed to swell the resin. Ball milling the functional resin exposes the functional groups as a function of surface area.
