    Catalytic SNAr reaction of fluoroarenes possessing no electron-withdrawing group(s) with cyclic amines was achieved using a readily accessible Ru catalyst, which was prepared from [Ru(benzene)Cl2] 2, AgOTf, and P(p-FC6H4)3. The coexistence of molecular sieves MS4A realized high conversion and various substituted aryl amines were obtained in good to high yields.
