- A mild, regioselective, iridium-catalyzed C–H amidation and borylation of anthraquinones to the o-sulfonamide and m-borylated products has been developed. The anthraquinone carbonyl moieties direct the C–H amidation with high selectivity to afford the ortho-substituted products in modest to high yields.
