A catalytic acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling of arylhydrazines and alcohols enables a direct synthesis of arylhydrazones with complete selectivity for arylhydrazones without N-alkylated byproducts. This process provides a new horizon for the development of catalytic acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling reactions.
