Abstract

original image

Do the competition: The synthesis of 1,2-diarylethanones has been accomplished using the palladium-catalyzed coupling of aryl iodides and CO/benzyl chlorides or benzoyl chlorides. These reactions proceed smoothly in the presence of zinc powder to afford the products in moderate to excellent yields.
