A Pd-catalyzed intramolecular C–H arylation of nitroarenes has been developed. Nitroarenes bearing tethered aryl groups at the ortho-position can be readily prepared in one step from 2-halonitroarenes by a nucleophilic aromatic substitution (SNAr). Under Pd/BrettPhos catalysis, activations of the C–NO2 bond as well as the C–H bond on arenes generated the corresponding biaryl linkage in moderate to excellent yields.
