Fluorination reactions are essential to modern medicinal chemistry, thus providing a means to block site-selective metabolic degradation of drugs and access radiotracers for positron emission tomography imaging. Despite current sophistication in fluorination reagents and processes, the fluorination of unactivated CH bonds remains a significant challenge.(More)
A room-temperature, copper-catalyzed amination of primary benzylic C-H bonds with primary and secondary sulfonamides is described. The reaction is applicable to the coupling of a range of primary and secondary benzylic hydrocarbons with a diverse set of sulfonamides and is tolerant of substitution on both coupling partners. Factors which influence the(More)
