A "bulky-yet-flexible" Pd-PEPPSI-IPentAn complex catalyzes a highly efficient amination of sterically hindered (hetero)aryl chlorides with a variety of aliphatic and aromatic amines. The operationally simple protocol smoothly proceeded under mild conditions without the exclusion of air and moisture to provide the desired products.
