A decarbonylative C-H coupling of azoles and aromatic esters by palladium catalysis is described. Our previously reported Ni-catalyzed C-H coupling of azoles and aromatic esters has a significant drawback regarding the substrate scope. Herein, we employ palladium catalysis instead of nickel, resulting in a broader substrate scope in terms of azoles and aromatic esters.
