An efficient and general method for the synthesis of 1,4-dihydropyridines and pyridines based on a lithiation/isomerization/intramolecular carbolithiation sequence is reported. This procedure provides an efficient, divergent, and straightforward entry to a wide range of polysubstituted dihydropyridines and pyridines starting from readily available(More)
The CuI- or Ag₂CO₃-catalyzed [3+2] cycloaddition of propargyl-substituted dihydroisoindolin-1-one (3) with arylnitrile oxides 1a-d (Ar = Ph, p-MeC₆H₄, p-MeOC₆H₄, p-ClC₆H₄) produces in good yields novel 3,5-disubstituted isoxazoles 4 of the ethyl-2-benzyl-3-oxo-1-((3-arylisoxazol-5yl)methyl)-2,3-dihydro-1H-isoindole-1-carboxylate type. With aryl azides 2a-d(More)
An efficient copper-mediated method for the oxidative alkynylation of diaryl imines with terminal alkynes is reported. This reaction provides the first catalytic and general synthesis of ynimines and allows for an easy preparation of these useful building blocks. An improved copper-catalyzed oxidative dimerization of imines to azines and the synthesis of(More)
A modular indole synthesis based on an intramolecular 5-endo-dig carbocupration starting from readily available N-aryl-ynamides is reported. A variety of ynamides are converted to indoles in moderate to good yields and with varying substitution pattern on the indole ring. This further extends the synthetic utility of ynamides in organic synthesis and(More)
We have developed a general synthesis of polysubstituted 1,4-dihydropyridines and pyridines based on a highly regioselective lithiation/6-endo-dig intramolecular carbolithiation from readily available N-allyl-ynamides. This reaction, which has been successfully applied to the formal synthesis of the anti-dyskinesia agent sarizotan, further extends the use(More)
Insights into the reactivity of ynimines under anionic conditions are reported. They were shown to be excellent precursors of metalated ketenimines, which can be generated in situ by the reaction of ynimines with organolithium reagents or strong bases. The metalated ketenimines can then be trapped with various electrophiles and, depending on their(More)
