The first catalytic allylic C-H fluorination reaction using a nucleophilic fluoride source is reported. Under the influence of a Pd/Cr cocatalyst system, simple olefin substrates undergo fluorination with Et3N·3HF in good yields with high branched:linear regioselectivity. The mild conditions and broad scope make this reaction a powerful alternative to(More)
A recently discovered radical fragmentation of 2-fluoro-6-pyridinoxy derivatives allows a new highly stereoselective and convergent route to (E)-vinylsulfones from allylic alcohols. Reductive desulfonylation or nickel-catalyzed couplings furnish di- and trisubstituted (E)- and (Z)-alkenes.
A general and efficient method for a metal-free one-pot synthesis of highly substituted fused imidazole-containing 5,5- and 5,6-fused bicyclic heterocycles is described. Starting from commercially available substrates and reagents, the reaction proceeds through two C-N bond formations and an oxidative dehydrogenation to form highly substituted products in(More)
A direct and efficient introduction of a trifluoroethylamine motif into various heteroaromatic structures, using a readily available xanthate S-[1-(N-acetylamino)-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl]-O-ethyl dithiocarbonate (5), is reported. Medicinally relevant trifluoroethylaminated heteroarenes containing a wide range of functional groups were successfully synthesized(More)
2-Fluoropyridinyl-6-oxy- precursors derived from phenyl vinyl sulfide react with radicals generated from xanthates via an addition-elimination process to furnish the corresponding vinyl sulfides in good yields. This convergent method is operationally simple and enables a straightforward synthesis of the difficult to access tetrasubstituted vinyl sulfides.(More)
A highly demanding cross-metathesis (CM) reaction for the formation of the C24-C25 trisubstituted olefin of dolabelide C has been optimized. A difference in reactivity between the E and Z enone isomers in this reaction was uncovered, and the selection of the Z isomer of the starting enone was critical for the success of the cross-metathesis. Application to(More)
