Expedient C?H aminocarbonylations of unactivated (hetero)arenes and alkenes were accomplished with a cobalt(III) catalyst that shows high functional group tolerance. The C?H functionalization occurred with excellent chemo-, site-, and diastereoselectivity and enabled step-economical reactions with isocyanates or acyl azides.
