    Abstract

    Highly branch-selective, carbonyl-directed hydroarylations of monosubstituted alkenes are described. The chemistry relies upon a cationic Ir(I) catalyst modified with an electron deficient, wide bite angle bisphosphine ligand. This work provides a regioisomeric alternative to the Murai hydroarylation protocol.
