Silver-Catalyzed Minisci Reactions Using Selectfluor as a Mild Oxidant

A new method for silver-catalyzed Minisci reactions using Selectfluor as a mild oxidant is reported. Heteroarenes and quinones both participate in radical C–H alkylation and arylation from a variety of carboxylic and boronic acid radical precursors. Several oxidatively sensitive and highly reactive radical species are successful, providing structures that are challenging to access by other means.
