Abstract

original image

Ahead of the PAC: Polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) can be easily accessed by the combination of Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling and a [Rh2(OAc)4]-catalyzed carbene reaction using easily available bis(N-tosylhydrazone)s as intermediates (see scheme; Ts=4-toluenesulfonyl).
