50_37b/2011Back Cover: Stereospecific Palladium-Catalyzed Decarboxylative C(sp3)-C(sp2) Coupling of 2,5-Cyclohexadiene-1-carboxylic Acid Derivatives with Aryl Iodides (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 37/2011)

Decarboxylation of aryl, allyl, and alkyl metal carboxylates, which are readily accessible from carboxylic acids, offers an attractive approach for the generation of the corresponding organometallic compounds. In their Communication on page 8614 ff., A. Studer and co-workers report on highly stereospecific decarboxylative palladations of 2,5-cyclohexadiene-1-carboxylic acids. Stereoselective arylation of these intermediates delivers optically active arylated cyclohexadienes.
