Highly Effective Pd-Catalyzed ortho Olefination of Acetanilides: Broad Substrate Scope and High Tolerability



original image

Bring it on! An effective Pd-catalyzed ortho olefination of various acetanilides has been developed. This transformation has a broad substrate scope and wide functional-group tolerability, regardless of the electronic and steric properties of acetanilide substrates, providing a straightforward access to highly functionalized arenes.
