A palladium-catalyzed Sonogashira-type coupling between arylsulfonyl hydrazides and terminal alkynes via Ar(C)-S bond cleavage is disclosed, which enables the general synthesis of functionalized internal alkynes, especially the Br-substituted ones, in good to excellent yields under acid- and base-free conditions.
Using O2 as the oxidant, the benzoxazole frameworks can be directly constructed from the readily available phenols and primary amines in the presence of NH4PF6 over copper under mild conditions. Mechanistic studies showed that a novel mechanism involving biphenyldiols and o-quinones very possibly takes effect in the reaction, because both can selectively(More)
