Sterically Controlled C‒H Olefination of Heteroarenes

Manuel van Gemmeren Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and WWU Münster


We report a sterically controlled C–H olefination using heteroarenes as the limiting reagent. The method enables the highly C5-selective olefination of a wide range of heteroarenes and is shown to be useful in the context of late-stage functionalization.
