Not only carbonylation: The first carbonylative cross-coupling reactions towards ketones using C-H activation have been developed. Various heteroarenes, such as oxazoles, thiazoles, and imidazoles were used as coupling partners in this methodology. DBU = 1,8-diazabicyclo-[5.4.0]undec-7-ene, dppp = 1,3-bisdiphe-nylphosphinopropane, DMF = N,N-dime-thylformamide.
