An aerobic oxidative coupling of arenes/alkenes with arylboronic acids (C-H/C-B coupling) using catalytic Pd(ii)-sulfoxide-oxazoline (sox) ligand and iron-phthalocyanine (FePc) has been developed. This dual catalyst system enables the synthesis of sterically hindered heterobiaryls and styrene derivatives under air without stoichiometric co-oxidants. Additionally, this chemistry demonstrated an advance toward an enantioselective biaryl coupling through C-H functionalization.
