Abstract

original image

Say halo, wave goodbye: Recently, several research groups have reported that the C[BOND]H bond arylation of aromatic compounds with haloarenes can be promoted by potassium or sodium tert-butoxide, without the addition of any exogenous transition metal species. These serendipitous discoveries are highlighted and summarized.
