Palladium-catalyzed electrochemical iodination and one-pot arylation of arylpyridines are described. Ortho-selective C-H iodination proceeded via dual activation of each substrate by a palladium catalyst and an electrode. Various aryl groups were introduced at the ortho positions of arylpyridines by ON/OFF switching of two different catalytic cycles using the same palladium catalyst in a one-pot fashion.
