Versatile cobalt-catalyzed C-H allylations on arenes, indoles, and pyrroles were accomplished with allyl acetates. The C-H/C-O functionalization process was characterized by a broad substrate scope as well as an excellent functional-group tolerance and was shown to occur by initial C-H cobaltation.
