The first stereoselective rhodium-catalyzed intermolecular aziridination and C-H amination of alkenes to produce chiral carbamate-protected aziridines and allylic amines is described. Good yields and diastereoselectivities were achieved using a readily available chiral N-tosyloxycarbamate and stoichiometric amount of the alkene substrate. Furthermore the(More)
Decarboxylative cross-coupling reactions of substituted 2-carboxyazine N-oxides, with a variety of (hetero)aryl halides, by bimetallic Pd(0)/Cu(I) and Pd(0)/Ag(I) catalysis are reported. Two possible pathways, a conventional bimetallic-catalyzed decarboxylative arylation, as well as a protodecarboxylative/direct C-H arylation sequence have been considered.(More)
A novel chiral N-mesyloxycarbamate to perform rhodium-catalyzed stereoselective C-H amination reactions is reported. Chiral benzylic and propargylic amines are produced in good yields and selectivities using ethyl acetate as solvent. The corresponding free amines are easily obtained by cleavage of the chiral reagent, which could also be recovered.
A new methodology, using fluoride ion as a nucleophilic catalyst, was applied for the synthesis of enantiopure 1,4-benzothiazepine from cyclic sulfenamide and electron-deficient acetylene, with high efficiency and atom economy.
