    • Abstract


      A catalytic combination of [Ir(COD)Cl]2-SnCl4 efficiently promotes the reactions of arenes and heteroarenes with $1^\circ/2^\circ/3^\circ$ benzyl alcohols as the alkylating agents to afford the corresponding diarylmethane and triarylmethane derivatives in high yields. The scope and limitation of the reaction with respect to catalyst and substrates variation has been studied in detail.
