Abstract

A novel, microwave-assisted method producing anilines and phenols from activated aryl halides is reported. This high-yielding method reduces current reaction requirements and removes organic solvents and catalysts making a more efficient and eco-friendly alternative for the synthesis of important pharmaceutical building blocks.
