A palladium/norbornene-catalyzed synthetic method that combines selective ortho C–H bond activation with sequential reactions to form complex selenide compounds has been developed. The C­(O)–Se bond in selenoates is successfully cleaved, and various kinds of α-carbonyl selanes were synthesized in decent to excellent yields. The reaction has good functional group tolerance and broad substrate scope.
