A Rh-catalyzed oxidative dehydrogenative cross-coupling of 1,4-naphthquinones with alkenes was achieved by using a substituent-enabled C­(sp2)–H functionalization (SEF) strategy. The method shows high functional group tolerance, broad substrate scope, and great potential for further functional transformations.
