Abstract

Iron(III) mediated coupling of arylmagnesium halides with other aryl halides produced both homo- and cross-coupled products. The reaction of phenylmagnesium bromide with 1,4-dibromobenzene as well as with 4-chlorobromobenzene in presence of FeCl3 catalyst produced both cross-coupled p-terphenyl and homo-coupled biphenyl. Under the same condition only homo-coupled 4,4¢-dipropoxybiphenyl was obtained from 4-propoxyphenylmagnesium bromide. The coupling of 4-bromophenylmagnesium bromide with bromobenzene produced both homo- and cross-coupled biaryls.
