Inexpensive copper(I) iodide catalyzes the formation of N-aryl amides from arenediazonium salts and primary amides via in situ formation of iodoarenes in the presence of tetrabutylammonium iodide. This protocol is applicable to various substituted amides and diazonium salts, giving very good yields of the desired products.
