Palladium-catalyzed arene C(sp2)–H acetoxylation has emerged as a powerful tool to construct a carbon–oxygen (C–O) bond. However, the requirement of stoichiometric chemical oxidants for this transformation possesses a significant disadvantage. To solve this fundamental problem, we now report an anodic oxidation strategy to achieve arene C(sp2)–H acetoxylation.
