Iron-mediated C–H coupling of arenes and unactivated terminal alkenes directed by sulfur

Author affiliations

Abstract

A sulfur-directed Fe(III)-mediated ortho C–H coupling of arenes with unactivated terminal alkenes gives products of regioselective alkene chloroarylation. The novel mechanism involves redox-activation of the arene partner and alkene addition to the resultant aryl radical cation.
