Abstract

Azobenzenes were readily acylated at the 2-position with aldehydes in good yields through a Pd-catalyzed C-H functionalization in the presence of TBHP. The obtained acylated azobenzenes could be efficiently converted into the corresponding indazole derivatives in nearly quantitative yields.
