    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    ortho C-H activation of benzoic acids with Pd(ii) generates an oxapalladacycle that can decarboxylate to produce a palladium-associated aryne. The arynes then undergo [2+2+2] trimerisation to afford triphenylenes. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
