A rhodium-catalyzed amination reaction of aryl halides with amines takes place in the presence of a N-heterocyclic carbene ligand. The active metal species responsible for the reaction progress was identified. This convenient and mild procedure for Rh-catalyzed N-arylation displays a wide range of substrate scope and high degree of functional group tolerance.
