Abstract

original image

It's a fair cop guvner: The meta-selective arylation of various anilides with diaryliodonium triflates was achieved by using copper oxide nanoparticles imbedded in aluminum oxyhydroxide, Cu/AlO(OH). The copper catalyst is much more reactive than homogeneous CuI and CuII catalysts; it is also recyclable.
