A convenient method of tandem copper and palladium catalyzed coupling-cyclizing reactions has been developed for the preparation of diarylaminofluorenes. Methylbromotriphenylamines prepared by the copper-catalyzed reaction of substituted iodobenzenes and methylbromoanilines, coupled with chlorophenylboronic acid under palladium catalyst to obtain the chlorophenylmethyltriphenylamines (V). A series of diarylaminofluorenes can be generated in good yields through palladium-catalyzed activation of benzylic C(sp3)—H bond of compound V. It was found that the 2-diarylaminofluorenes or 3-diarylaminofluorenes could be efficiently got. These compounds were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, HRMS, IR and UV-vis.

Key words: diarylaminofluorene, C—H activation, copper-catalyzed, palladium-catalyzed
