A biaryl banquet! Biphenyls with four ortho substituents, heteroaromatic compounds, iodinated biaryls, and medium rings containing biaryls are all readily synthesized by organocuprate oxidation. The utility of this new methodology is illustrated by the efficient synthesis of the medium-ring core of sanguiin H-5 (see scheme).
