No transition metals are necessary in the reaction of in situ generated arynes with nitrosoarenes to give substituted carbazoles. Depending on the fluoride source and the solvent, either N-arylated carbazoles or NH-carbazoles are obtained (see scheme; DME=dimethoxyethane, OTf=trifluoromethanesulfonate). In these cascades a C[BOND]C and one or two C[BOND]N bonds are formed. The reactions are easy to conduct and proceed under mild conditions.
