      A ruthenium-catalyzed C-H arylation process is described using visible light. Using the readily available catalyst [RuCl ( -cymene)] , visible light irradiation was found to enable arylation of 2-aryl-pyridines at room temperature for a range of aryl bromides and iodides.

      A ruthenium-catalyzed <i>ortho</i> C-H arylation process is described using visible light. Using the readily available catalyst [RuCl<sub>2</sub>(<i>p</i>-cymene)]<sub>2</sub>, visible light irradiation was found to enable arylation of 2-aryl-pyridines at room temperature for a range of aryl bromides and iodides.
