C–H and C–N Arylation
A C4-selective C–H arylation of 2-aminothiazoles with arylboronic acids takes place under the influence of Pd(OAc)2/phen/TEMPO/LiBF4 in air. During this study, a Pd-catalyzed C–N cleavage/arylation of 2-aminobenzothiazoles with arylboronic acids has been discovered. bipy=2,2-bipyridyl; TEMPO=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl.
