A review is presented of synthetic methods for the preparation of biaryls by the rhodium-catalyzed C-H bond arylation of arenes with aryl halides (C-H/ C-X couplings), arylmetal reagents (C-H/C-M couplings) and arenes (C-H/C-H couplings), with an emphasis on postulated mechanisms and their implications on reactivity, selectivity and substrate scope.
