We report a general, direct C–H arylation of anilide derivatives using reusable palladium or copper oxide on magnetite as heterogeneous precatalysts. Highly selective ortho and meta arylations are achieved using electronically and sterically diverse diaryliodonium salts. Catalytically active soluble species from the heterogeneous precursors were detected by experimental techniques. Preliminary mechanistic investigation suggests different reaction pathways for each of the catalysts.
