Abstract

original image

Alloy, alloy! A cheap magnetic Fe-Ni alloy is prepared using a simple method and applied to the direct arylation of unactivated arenes with aryl halides. The catalyst exhibits excellent activity and can be reused at least eight times without a significant loss of catalytic activity.
