3,5-Dimethylpyrazole was employed as a monodentate directing group for palladium-catalyzed ortho-sp2 C–H arylation with aryl iodides. The reaction shows good functional group tolerance and outstanding selectivity for mono-ortho-arylation. Ozonolysis of ortho-arylated arylpyrazoles gave acylated biphenylamines that were further arylated to afford unsymmetrically substituted 2,6-diarylacetanilides.
