Isothiocyanate-Directed Ortho-Selective Halogenation of Arenes via C-H Functionalization
Ortho-selective halogenation of arenes via C-H functionalization has been described under mild reaction conditions. In this reaction Cu(II)X-2 was used as a halide source. It is a simple, general and efficient method for the synthesis of 2-halo aromatic isothiocyanates. All the reactions are carried out under optimized reaction conditions to provide their respective desired products in good to high yield.
