Abstract

A highly efficient Ullmann homocoupling reaction of aryl halides using palladium (II) phosphine-ylide complexes as homogenous pre-catalysts under aerobic conditions has been developed without the need for any chemical co‐reducing agents. The procedure is relatively mild and appears to have broad applicability, being useful for the homocoupling of both electron-deficient and electron-rich aryl halides and also homocoupling of phenylboronic acid and phenylacetylene.
