Rh-catalyzed direct carboxylation of unactivated aryl C-H bond under atmospheric pressure of carbon dioxide was realized via chelation-assisted C-H activation for the first time. Variously substituted and functionalized 2-arylpyridines and 1-arylpyrazoles underwent the carboxylation in the presence of the rhodium catalyst and a stoichiometric methylating(More)
An efficient, regioselective synthesis of fluorine-substituted arylboronic esters was achieved through fluorine-controlled C-H borylation of arenes with diboron catalyzed by a PSiN-platinum complex. The promising utility of the PSiN-platinum catalyst and its unique regioselectivity were demonstrated for the first time, which would complement the(More)
An efficient one-to-one coupling reaction of atmospheric pressure carbon dioxide with 1,3-dienes is realized for the first time through PSiP-pincer type palladium-catalyzed hydrocarboxylation. The reaction is applicable to various 1,3-dienes including easily available chemical feedstock such as 1,3-butadiene and isoprene. This protocol affords a highly(More)
Tridentate PSiP pincer-type palladium complex-catalyzed hydrocarboxylation of allenes under carbon dioxide to give synthetically useful beta,gamma-unsaturated carboxylic acids was developed. This novel CO2-fixation reaction is thought to proceed through the catalytic generation of sigma-allyl palladium species via hydropalladation of allenes, followed by(More)
Pd-catalyzed direct carboxylation of alkenyl C-H bonds with carbon dioxide was realized for the first time. Treatment of 2-hydroxystyrenes and a catalytic amount of Pd(OAc)2 with Cs2CO3 under atmospheric pressure of CO2 afforded corresponding coumarins in good yield. Furthermore, isolation of the key alkenylpalladium intermediate via C-H bond cleavage was(More)
Novel tungsten-containing carbonyl ylides 7, generated by the reaction of the o-alkynylphenyl carbonyl derivatives 1 with a catalytic amount of W(CO)(5)(thf), reacted with alkenes to give polycyclic compounds 5 through [3 + 2]-cycloaddition reaction followed by intramolecular C-H insertion of the produced nonstabilized carbene complex intermediates 8. In(More)
When the esters of arylboronic acids with 2,2-dimethylpropan-1,3-diol were treated with a catalytic amount of [Rh(OH)(cod)]2 in the presence of 1,3-bis(diphenylphosphino)propane and CsF in dioxane at 60 degrees C under carbon dioxide atmosphere, the benzoic acid derivatives were obtained in good yields. Reactions of alkenylboronic esters also proceeded(More)
Use of formate salts as a hydride as well as a CO2 source was achieved in a PGeP-palladium complex-catalyzed hydrocarboxylation of allenes through a highly efficient decarboxylation-carboxylation process. This reaction proceeds under mild conditions and provides an alternative strategy for utilizing formate salts as a C1 source.
Efficient synthesis and catalysis of a series of palladium complexes having a group 13 metalloligand (Al, Ga, In) are reported utilizing 6,6″-bis(phosphino)terpyridine as a new scaffold for Pd-E bonds (E = Al, Ga, In). Systematic investigation revealed unique characteristics of the Al-metalloligand in both structure and reactivity, which exhibited the(More)
