Ber. 1901, 34, 2174.Example:Drawbacks: - stoichiometric amount of copper - high reaction temperatures - limited to symmetrical biaryls - unsymmetrical biaryl can be formed by using aryl halides of different reactivity but require a large excess of the activated aryl halide

  • Limitations to Aforementioned Transition-Metal Catalyzed Methodspreparation of organometallic partner can require several synthetic steps more solvents, more purifications, more time, higher costs, more harmful to the enviroment a stoichiometric amount of undesired, and sometimes toxic, organometallic by-product is produced- challenging to control regioselectivity for intermolecular direct arylation reactions of arenes, a directing group is needed; which may take several steps to introduce and then remove if not desired in the final product- challenging to control regioselectivity- large excess of one arene is needed- an excess of oxidant is needed (sometimes an organometallic reagent is used)

  • Aryl-Aryl Bond Formation via Decarboxylative CouplingAdvantages (for best case scenario): - aryl carboxylic acids are ubiquitous in nature - many are commercially available and inexpensive - easier to control regioselectivity - no extra steps are needed to introduce the acid moiety- fewer purifications- use of less solvent- less time - less energy wasted lower costs- more environmentally friendly - more environmentally friendly CO2 by-product (compared to toxic organometallic reagents) Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr.Nobel Peace Prize 2007Academy Award Winner 2007CO2 Sucks!Baudoin, O.
