Meta C-H Arylation of Electron-Rich Arenes: Reversing the Conventional Site Selectivity.

ABSTRACT: Controlling site selectivity of C-H activation without using a directing group remains a significant challenge. While Pd(II) catalysts modulated by a mutually repulsive pyridine-type ligand have been shown to favor the relatively electron-rich carbon centers of arenes, reversing the selectivity to favor palladation at the relatively electron-deficient positions has not been possible. Herein we report the first catalytic system that effectively performs meta C-H arylation of a variety of alkoxy aromatics including 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran and chromane with exclusive meta site selectivity, thus reversing the conventional site selectivity governed by native electronic effects. The identification of an effective ligand and modified norbornene (NBE-CO2Me), as well as taking advantage of the statistics, are essential for achieving the exclusive meta selectivity.
