Abstract

A cross-dehydrogenative-coupling of alkoxybenzenes and toluenes with concomitant halogenation is reported. Conditions employed were the use of stoichiometric copper halide salts and dialkylperoxides to afford a range of bromoalkoxydi- and triarylmethanes. Preliminary mechanistic studies suggest that the in situ production of haloarenes (or dihaloarenes) followed by a copper-mediated coupling of a benzylic radical is operational.
