Abstract

Palladium-catalyzed oxidative carbonylation of 2-arylphenols through C–H bond activation and C–C and C–O bond formation under acid–base free and mild conditions has been developed. The reaction tolerates a variety of substrates and provides biologically important benzopyranone derivatives in up to 87% isolated yield.
