Abstract

original image

Two strong arms to hold the catalyst: (O,O) and (O,N)-chelate ruthenium(II) complexes obtained from kojic acid or glycine are efficient catalysts for the (hetero)arylation of Cmath image[BOND]H bonds if associated to potassium pivalate. Moreover, the catalysts operate in water.
