The use of a dual palladium/organic photoredox catalytic system enables the directed arylation of arenes with aryldiazonium salts under mild reaction conditions. This reaction serves as not only an alternative route for a broad range of biaryl motifs but also a new example for the application of an organic photoredox catalyst.
