This paper describes a mild palladium-catalyzed method for the regioselective chlorination, bromination, and iodination of arene C−H bonds using N-halosuccinimides as oxidants. These transformations have been applied to a wide array of substrates and can provide products that are complementary to those obtained via conventional electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions.
