Abstract

PtII complexes containing unsymmetrical (pyridyl)pyrrolide ligands are shown to catalyze the hydroarylation of unactivated alkenes with selectivity for the anti‐Markovnikov product. Substitution on the pyrrolide portion of the ligand allows effective tuning of the selectivity to anti‐Markovnikov alkylarene products, whereas substitution on the pyridyl portion can promote competitive alkenylarene production.
