Abstract

Copper(II)-catalyzed O-arylation of tertiary alcohols with various triarylbismuth reagents was investigated. A convenient and efficient system for aryl ether formation of tertiary alcohols has been developed through the in situ oxidation of stable triarylbismuth(III) to triarylbismuth(V) species using PhI(OAc) 2 as the oxidant in the presence of a catalytic amount of copper(II) acetate.
