There is a Sames/Sezen application: PCT/ US2004/003215

Amidst the second set of retractions of papers by Dalibor Sames of Columbia, one notes that there is a published patent application with Sames and Sezen as co-inventors, PCT/ US2004/003215 (Synthetic Method for Direct Arylation of Heterocyclic Arenes), claiming priority to US Provisional Application 60/444,542 filed February 3, 2003.

The agent listed is Henry Tang of Baker Botts.

The work was supported by the National Institute of Healths (NIH), so that the patent effort is brought to use through the Bayh-Dole Act.

There is disclosure of a carbon selectivity agent, preferably copper iodide.
