Abstract

Hydrocarbon-soluble β-diketiminato phenylcalcium derivatives, which display various modes of Ca−μ 2-Ph−Ca bridging, are accessible from reactions of Ph 2Hg and [(BDI)CaH] 2. Although the resultant compounds are inert toward the C−H bonds of benzene, they yield selective and uncatalyzed biaryl formation when reacted with readily available aryl bromides.
