dc.description.abstractIn intermolecular Heck reactions of styrene and vinylarenes, the aryl and vinyl groups routinely insert at the β position. However, selective insertion at the α position has been very rare. Herein, we provide a missing piece in the palette of Heck reaction, which gave >20:1 α selectivity. The key to our success is a new ferrocene 1,1′-bisphosphane (dnpf) that carries 1-naphthyl groups. Our mechanistic studies revealed that the high α selectivity is partly attributable to the steric effect of dnpf. The rigid and bulky 1-naphthyl groups of dnpf sterically disfavor β insertion.en_US
