Abstract

The iron-catalyzed arylation of aromatic heterocycles, such as­­­ pyridines, thiophenes and furans has been achieved. The use of an imine directing group allowed for the ortho functionalization of these heterocycles with complete conversion in 15 minutes at 0 °C. Yields up to 88% were observed in the synthesis of 15 heterocyclic biaryls.
