Abstract

Iron-catalyzed Heck coupling of benzyl chlorides and styrenes proceeds under photochemical conditions using the well-known anionic complex, [FeCp(CO)2]- (Fp-), as a catalyst. The reaction likely proceeds through the established SN2 mechanism for Fp- alkylation, followed by styrene migratory insertion and β-hydride elimination steps that are enabled by photochemical CO dissociation.
