Palladium–Catalysed Magnesiation of Benzene

preprint
submitted on 13.09.2018 and posted on 14.09.2018 by Martí Garçon, Andrew J. P. White, Mark Crimmin
In the presence of a catalytic quantity of a palladium bis(phosphine) complex, a reagent containing a Mg-Mg bond effects the C-H functionalisation of benzene. The resulting 100% atom efficient transformation generates an unprecedented aryl magnesium hydride.
