An unprecedented deformylative coupling of salicylaldehydes to acrylates and acrylamides under Rh-catalyzed conditions is reported. These deformylative couplings afforded o-hydroxycinnamates and o-hydroxycinnamamides with broad functional group tolerance and high chemoselectivity under milder reaction conditions.
