The first palladium-catalyzed decarbonylative coupling of phenyl 2-azinecarboxylates and arylboronic acids is presented. The key for the development of this decarbonylative coupling is the use of Pd/dcype as a catalyst. A wide range of 2-azinecarboxylates can undergo the present coupling reaction to afford 2-arylazines. By combination with previously reported nickel-catalyzed decarbonylative coupling, we achieved a chemoselective sequential decarbonylative coupling of pyridine dicarboxylate to synthesize 2,4-diarylpyridine.
