Abstract

The nickel-catalyzed direct reductive cross-coupling of aryl halides with readily accessible polysubstituted allyl halides provides an efficient method for preparing diverse allylated arenes under mild conditions. Both allyl bromides and allyl chlorides are compatible with the transformation.

  • 13 2-(3-Methylbut-2-en-1-yl)biphenyl (3b); Typical Example A dry, N2-flushed, 25 mL Schlenk tube equipped with a magnetic stirrer was charged with Mg (3.5 mmol, 3.5 equiv) and anhyd LiCl (3 mmol, 3.0 equiv), which were covered with anhyd THF (3 mL) and activated by the addition of a few drops of TMSCl. The mixture was stirred for 30 min, then ligand L1 (0.1 mmol, 0.1 equiv) and NiI2 (0.05 mmol, 0.05 equiv) were added, and the mixture was stirred at 0 °C. A solution of 4-bromobiphenyl (1b; 1.0 mmol, 1.0 equiv) and bromide 2a (3.0 mmol, 3.0 equiv) in THF (2 mL) was slowly added from a syringe pump at 0 °C (flow rate: 3 mL/h). The resulting mixture was stirred under N2 at 0 °C for 12 h. Sat. aq NH4Cl (10 mL) was added, and the mixture was extracted with EtOAc (3 × 30 mL). The combined organic fractions were dried (Na2SO4), concentrated in vacuo, and purified by chromatography [silica gel (200–300 mesh), PE] to give a colorless oil; yield: 115 mg (52%); Rf  = 0.58 (PE). IR (ATR–FTIR): 2969, 1479, 1047, 738, 700 cm–1. 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3): δ = 7.43–7.38 (m, 2 H), 7.36–7.29 (m, 5 H), 7.25–7.21 (m, 2 H), 5.19 (t, J = 7.2 Hz, 1 H), 3.28 (d, J = 7.2 Hz, 2 H), 1.68 (s, 3 H), 1.51 (s, 3 H); 13C NMR (100 MHz, CDCl3): δ = 141.84, 141.76, 139.2, 131.9, 130.0, 129.33, 129.25, 128.0, 127.4, 126.7, 125.7, 123.7, 32.0, 25.7, 17.7. MS (ES+): m/z (%) = 223 (8) [M + H]+, 195 (28), 177 (21), 168 (25), 133 (100), 117 (35), 105 (12). HRMS (ES+–TOF): m/z [M + H]+ calcd for C17H19: 223.1487; found: 223.1474.
