A dearomative 1,4-carboamination of arenes has been achieved using arenophile cycloaddition and subsequent palladium-catalyzed substitution with nonstabilized lithium enolates. This protocol delivers products with exclusive syn-1,4-selectivity and can be also conducted in an asymmetric fashion. The method allows rapid dearomative difunctionalization of simple aromatic compounds into functional small molecules amenable to further diversification.
