Although a range of methods are available for the synthesis of functionalized biphenyls, these compounds continue to attract the attention of organic chemists owing to the versatility and usefulness of the biphenyl scaffold. The group of Professor Bernd Schmidt from the University of Potsdam (Germany) has recently reported a new Pd-catalyzed entry to biphenyl compounds using diazonium salts as substrates for cross-coupling reactions.
