Arylations of electron-rich heteroatom-substituted olefins were performed with electron-rich arylboronic acids via palladium(II) catalysis. This mild protocol, which offers access to functionalized enamides, exploits oxygen gas for reoxidation and a stable 1,10-phenanthroline bidentate ligand to promote the palladium(II) regeneration and to control the regioselectivity.
