N-arylation of either aryl iodides or aryl bromides with common π-excessive nitrogen heterocycles (pyrroles, pyrazoles, indazoles, imidazoles, and triazoles) was successfully performed in good yield with catalysts derived from diamine ligands and CuI. General conditions were found that tolerate various functional groups and hindered substrates.
