A three-component coupling of vinyl triflates and boronic acids to alkenes catalyzed by palladium is reported. Using 1,3-dienes, selective 1,2-alkene difunction-alization is observed, whereas the use of terminal alkenes results in 1,1-alkene difunctionalization. The reaction outcome is attributed to the formation of stabilized, cationic Pd-π-allyl(More)
A cationic palladium complex catalyzes the title transformations, which are thought to proceed via a pi-allyl or pi-benzyl intermediate. The regioselectivity of the reaction (1,2- or 1,1-difunctionalization) depends on the type of terminal double bond (conjugated or nonconjugated) in the substrate (see scheme) and appears to be controlled by the relative(More)
An unconventional route for the formation of sp(3)-sp(3) C-C bonds from various styrenes and an organozinc reagent in a formal alkene hydroalkylation process is detailed. Mechanistically, this process is proposed to proceed by initial transmetalation followed by formation of a Pd-H species, which is subsequently trapped by the styrene.
A simple and straightforward method for the stereocontrolled synthesis of β-linked N-glycosides uses alkyl and aryl azides as the nitrogen source. The N-glycosides are formed in high yields and with high β selectivities (typically >70% yield, >15:1 β:α selectivity). This approach is also amenable to the synthesis of N-glycosylated amino acids and peptides(More)
Evaluation of the scope of a Pd(II)-catalyzed oxidative 1,1-diarylation reaction of terminal olefins using aryl stannanes is reported. The reaction is shown to be tolerant of functionality commonly encountered in organic synthesis; however, the reaction outcome was found to be dependent on the nature of the aryl stannane used. A mechanistic rationale for(More)
