Pd/Fe dual catalysts for C–H coupling
An aerobic oxidative coupling of arenes/alkenes with arylboronic acids (C–H/C–B coupling) using catalytic Pd(II)/sulfoxide–oxazoline (sox) ligand and iron-phthalocyanine (FePc) has been developed. This dual catalyst system enables the synthesis of sterically hindered heterobiaryls and styrene derivatives under air without stoichiometric co-oxidants. Additionally, this chemistry demonstrated toward an enantioselective biaryl coupling through C–H functionalization.
