    ABSTRACT: Arenes and electron-deficient olefins can be oxidatively coupled through a biomimetic Pd(OAc)2 -catalyzed transformation. CH activation of the arene partner is effected under reaction conditions of low catalyst loading, normal oxygen pressure, and using p-benzoquinone and iron phthalocyanine as electron-transfer mediators (ETMs). By controlling catalyst loading, the reaction can be made selective for either mono- or diarylation.

    ABSTRACT: The right path: N-protected amino alcohols undergo aerobic and biomimetic oxidation to the corresponding lactams in the presence of a ruthenium catalyst and a combination of electron-transfer mediators under air (see scheme). The reaction was used for the synthesis of five-, six-, and seven-, membered lactams and showed good tolerance to a number of N-protecting groups.
