Abstract

The challenge of achieving selective and predictable functionalizations at C-H bonds with complex poly(hetero)aromatic substrates was addressed by two different approaches. Site-selectivity can be obtained by applying various reaction conditions that are (hetero)arene specific to substrates that contain indoles, pyridine N-oxide, and polyfluorinated benzenes. An experimental classification of electron-rich heteroarenes based on their reactivity toward palladium-catalyzed C-H functionalization was established, the result of which correlated well with the order of reactivity predicted by the DFT-calculated concerted metalation-deprotonation (CMD) pathway. Model substrates containing two reactive heteroarenes were then reacted under general reaction conditions to demonstrate the applicability this reactivity chart in predicting the regioselectivity of the palladium-catalyzed direct arylation and benzylation reactions.
