Three inexpensive and air-/moisture-stable Salen-Cu complexes 1-3 were evaluated to be a novel class of catalysts for the N-arylation of imidazoles with aryl halides. A variety of aryl iodides, bromides underwent the coupling with imida-zoles, promoted by the complex 3, in moderate to excellent yields without the protection by an inert gas.
