Abstract

This paper reports the first example of C−H arylation of benzene under mild conditions, using H2 as an electron source {turnover numbers (TONs)=0.7–2.0 for 24 h}. The reaction depends on a Rh-based electron storage catalyst, and proceeds at room temperature and in aqueous solution. Furthermore, the H2 is inactive during the radical transfer step, greatly reducing unwanted side reactions.
