Abstract

An aerobic, heterogeneously catalyzed oxidative intramolecular coupling reaction of aromatic compounds is reported here. Using commercially available, recyclable heterogeneous metal catalysts, the coupling reactions of o-terphenyls and 1,ω-biarylalkanes proceeded quickly under mild conditions, i.e., at room temperature under oxygen as a co-oxidant almost all within 1 h, to provide the corresponding coupled products like triphenylenes and phenanthrenes in good to excellent yields. This reaction is an easily handled, practical, and atom-economical coupling method, which is of great importance in modern organic syntheses. (Figure presented.).
