Abstract

The alkylative dearomatization of benzyl chlorides via η3-benzylpalladium intermediates has been developed for carbo­cycle synthesis. This article highlights the current progress in the area of η3-benzylpalladium chemistry. A new method has been established for naphthylamine and anthrylamine synthesis.
