Herein we describe the auxiliary-directed arylation of unactivated C(sp3)−H bonds with aryldiazonium salts, which proceeds under synergistic photoredox and palladium catalysis. The site-selective arylation of aliphatic amides with α-quaternary centres is achieved with high selectivity for β-methyl C(sp3)−H bonds. This operationally simple method is compatible with carbocyclic amides, a range of aryldiazonium salts and proceeds at ambient conditions.
