Palladium catalyzed direct C-H arylation of 3-bromoisothiazole-5-carbonitrile with aryl/hetaryl iodides in the presence of AgF gave 13 4-aryl/hetaryl-3-bromoisothiazole-5-carbonitriles. The scope of this arylation was investigated and explanations for the limitations proposed. 3-Bromoisothiazole-5-carboxamide was isolated as a side-product, and its formation was attributed to Ag+-catalyzed hydration of the C-5 nitrile. The analogous phenylation of 3-chloroisothiazole-5-carbonitrile and 3-bromoisothiazole-4-carboxamide gave 3-chloro-4-phenylisothiazole-5-carbonitrile and 3-bromo-5-phenylisothiazole-4-carboxamide in 83 and 64% yields, respectively. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
