The selective α-arylation and α-arylative esterification of linear and branched aldehydes is reported for a variety of bromoarenes. The acylation of aryl bromides can be achieved with linear aldehydes (see scheme). All these transformations were performed with a single [(N-heterocyclic carbene)Pd] catalyst through adjustment of the stoichiometry of the reagents and the appropriate base.
