The direct functionalization of heterocyclic compounds has emerged as one of the most important topics in the field of metal-catalyzed C-H bond activation due to the fact that products are an important synthetic motif in organic synthesis, the pharmaceutical industry, and materials science. This critical review covers the recent progresses on the(More)
Reported herein is the development of the Ir(III)-catalyzed direct C-H amidation of arenes and alkenes using acyl azides as the nitrogen source. This procedure utilizes an in situ generated cationic half-sandwich iridium complex as a catalyst. The reaction takes place under very mild conditions, and a broad range of sp(2) C-H bonds of chelate(More)
The possibility of direct introduction of a new functionality through C-H bond activation is an attractive strategy in covalent synthesis. Here, we investigated the mechanism of Rh-catalysed C-H amination of the heteroaryl substrate (2-phenylpyridine) using phenyl azide as a nitrogen source by density functional theory (DFT). For the deprotocyclometallation(More)
Organometallic chelates are readily obtained upon coordination of metal species to multidentate ligands. Because of the robust structural nature, chelation frequently serves as a driving force in the molecular assembly and chemical architecture, and they are used also as an efficient catalyst in numerous reactions. Described herein is the development of a(More)
Direct C-H amination of arenes offers a straightforward route to aniline compounds without necessitating aryl (pseudo)halides as the starting materials. The recent development in this area, in particular in the metal-mediated transformations, is significant with regard to substrate scope and reaction conditions. Described herein are the mechanistic details(More)
Reported herein is the first example of the Rh(NHC)-catalyzed selective bis C-H alkylation of NNN tridentate chelating compounds in reaction with alkenes. The observed excellent site-selectivity can readily be explained by the postulated rollover pathway in the C-H bond activation step. The reaction is highly facile affording bis-alkylated tridentate(More)
