(matrix presented) In the copper salt catalyzed ether formation from aryl bromides or iodides and phenols, 2,2,6,6,-tetramethylheptane-3,5-dione (TMHD) was found to greatly accelerate the ordinarily difficult reaction, making it occur under more moderate temperatures and reaction times. A series catalysts. The reaction was shown to tolerate electron-rich aryl bromides and electron-neutral phenols.
