Copper is all bound up: The copper-catalyzed α-arylation of carbonyl compounds occurs through oxidative addition of iodoarenes to the C-bound CuI enolate species 1 to form an aryl–CuIII intermediate (see scheme). Computational results provide insight into the origins of the relative reactivity of various CuI enolate complexes in the reactions with iodoarenes.
