Swapped: Commercially available quinolinone derivatives (1 or 2, see scheme) were reacted with arylboronic acids in the presence of a RhI complex to give aryl(quinolin-8-yl)methanone products 3 in medium to good yields. A mechanism that involves the in situ oxidation of RhI to RhIII by O2 in the presence of CuI was proposed.
