What a couple! Arenes functionalized with donating groups undergo oxidative dehydrogenative coupling with alcohols in the presence of a copper/silver catalyst system. This intermolecular C[BOND]H alkoxylation provides a convenient synthetic route to the important class of aryl ethers. The catalyst system also allows the alkoxylation of benzylic C[BOND]H groups with formation of benzyl alkyl ethers.
