Abstract

We report rare examples of exclusive benzylic C-H oxidative addition in industrially important methylarenes using simple η4-arene iridium complexes. Mechanistic studies showed that coordinatively unsaturated η2-arene intermediates are responsible for the selective activation of benzylic, not aromatic C-H bonds and formation of stable benzyl complexes after trapping with a phosphine ligand.
