Palladium-Catalyzed Enantioselective Narasaka-Heck Reaction/Direct C−H Alkylation of Arenes: Iminoarylation of Alkenes

A palladium-catalyzed reaction of g,d-unsaturated oxime esters with oxadiazoles afforded dihydropyrroles in good to excellent yields through an intramolecular iminopalladation/intermolecular direct heteroarene C-H alkylation cascade. This unprecedented iminoarylation of alkenes was subsequently realized in an enantioselective manner in the presence of a chiral bidentate phosphine ligand (Synphos).
