A copper(II)-catalyzed tandem reaction between pyridine ketone and benzylamine was developed by using clean O2 as an oxidant. This transformation proceeded via an efficient condensation-amination-oxidative dehydrogenation process, affording 1,3-diarylated imidazo[1,5-a]pyridines in excellent yields.
