CuI-catalyzed coupling of N-acyl-N′-substituted hydrazines with aryl iodides affords N-acyl-N′,N′-disubstituted hydrazines regioselectively. N-Acyl-N′-substituted hydrazines can also react with 2-bromoarylcarbonylic compounds in the presence of 4-hydroxy-L-proline as ligand to provide 1-aryl-1H-indazoles.
