AbstractAryl carbon-chlorine (Ar-Cl) bond cleavage has been achieved with rhodium(III) tetrakis-4-tolylporphyrin chloride (Rh(ttp)Cl) to give Rh(ttp)Ar. For 4-chlorofluorobenzene, the aryl carbon-fluorine (Ar-F) bond cleavage competes with the Ar-Cl bond cleavage. Mechanistic investigations show that the Ar-Cl bond cleavage goes through metalloradical ipso-substitution mechanism, while the Ar-F bond cleavage goes through nucleophilic aromatic substitution. The selectivity of the Ar-F or Ar-Cl bond cleavage can be controlled by tuning the temperature and substrate concentration.
