A Pdᴵᴵ-catalyzed, ligand-enabled gamma-C(sp3)–H arylation of free primary aliphatic amines and amino esters without using an exogenous directing group is reported. This reaction is compatible with unhindered free aliphatic amines, and it is also be applicable to the rapid synthesis of biologically and synthetically valuable unnatural α-amino acids. Large scale synthesis is also feasible using this method.
