Substituted arenes are ubiquitous frameworks within the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and materials science industry. These valuable motifs have traditionally been prepared by electrophilic or radical substitution reactions, e.g. Friedel-Crafts acylation, however, their synthesis has been revolutionised through the development of transition metal catalysed C-H functionalisatipn reactions. The palladium-catalysed direct arylation of estrone has been achieved using a carbamate directing group to create a modest library of 2-aryl-3-diethylcarbamate estrones. Cleavage of the carbamate directing group with lithium aluminium hydride affords the corresponding 2- arylestradiol.
