Ligand-free manganese-catalyzed homocoupling of arenes or aryl halides can be carried out under aerobic conditions via the in situ formation of the corresponding aryllithiums. A wide range of biaryls and derivatives has been obtained, and a mechanism involving monomeric manganese-oxo complexes has been proposed on the basis of DFT calculations.
