A new method for the rhodium-catalyzed arylation of a variety of heterocycles has been developed. The reaction provided moderate to good yields of the arylated products. A preliminary mechanistic investigation of this reaction revealed the intermediacy of an isolable N-heterocyclic carbene complex.
