Abstract

Bidentate N,N-pyridylimine or N,N-pyridylamine donors are effective chelating ligands for regiospecific C-H activation at the peri-(C-8)-position of a naphthyl ring on reaction with palladium(II) acetate; DFT calculations show N,N-chelates bias the cyclopalladation towards 6-membered ring products.
