Iron(III)-catalyzed regioselective direct remote C–H carboxylation of naphthyl and quinoline amides was developed using CBr4 and alcohol. The reaction involves a radical pathway using a coordination activation strategy and single electron transfer process. The use of sustainable iron catalysis, selectivity, and the substrate scope are the important practical features.
