A new transition-metal-free version of the Meerwein arylation has been developed. The key feature of this carboamination-type reaction is the slow base-controlled generation of aryl radicals from aryldiazonium tetrafluoroborates, so that a sufficient quantity of diazonium ions remains to enable efficient trapping of the alkyl radical adduct resulting from(More)
Tertiary amides, which usually occur as cis/trans mixtures, can be effectively shifted to the cis conformation by placing a positive charge in close proximity to the amide carbonyl. This effect was used to prepare cis-configured prolyl amides and to facilitate a strongly rotamer-dependent radical cyclization.
The radical carbohydroxylation of styrenes with aryldiazonium salts has been achieved under mild thermal conditions. A broad range of aryldiazonium salts was tolerated, and the reaction principle based on a radical-polar crossover mechanism could be extended to carboetherification as well as to a two-step, metal-free variant of the Meerwein arylation(More)
