Abstract / Description of output

Arylated cyclobutanes were accessed by a versatile palladium-catalyzed secondary C(sp3)–H activations exploiting chelation assistance by modular triazoles. The C−H arylation led to cyclobutane natural product derivatives in a highly regioselective fashion, setting the stage for the rapid access to novel fluorogenic BODIPY-labeled probes for live-cell imaging.
