A mild and efficient method for the direct alkenylation of nonaromatic enamides was achieved through a palladium(II)-catalyzed C-H functionalization. The reaction scope includes cyclic and acyclic enamides and a range of activated alkenes. This approach represents the first successful direct C(3)-functionalization of nonaromatic cyclic enamides.
An efficient domino approach for the diastereoselective synthesis of polyfunctionalized nitrogen-fused tetrahydroquinoline frameworks under mild conditions has been developed. The scope and limitation of this transformation were investigated by using a range of readily accessible enamides and benzyl azides. This method is also applicable to the formation of… (More)
A straightforward palladium-catalyzed oxidative hydroxylation of azobenzenes is reported. The developed methodology tolerates various functional groups and allows the synthesis of diverse unsymmetrical azophenols under mild conditions in good to excellent yields. A complementary procedure was also investigated by in situ generation of PIFA. This study… (More)
Enamides are stable enamine surrogates and provide key intermediates for the synthesis of small but complex nitrogen-containing compounds. Metal-catalyzed regioselective functionalization of enamides provides a rapid method to synthesize useful nitrogen containing heterocycles. This review discloses the recent progress made in the development of the C-H… (More)
An efficient Pd-catalyzed decarboxylative cross-coupling reaction of simple enamides was achieved. Depending on the choice of the nitrogen-protecting group, a site-selective synthesis of mono- or diarylated framework(s) was performed under mild conditions. This unprecedented reactivity could be applied to the synthesis of a range of 2- or 2,4-diarylated… (More)
The synthesis of 3-aryl-2-cyclohexenones is a topic of current interest as they are not only privileged structures in bioactive molecules, but they are also relevant feedstocks for the synthesis of substituted phenols or anilines, which are ubiquitous structural elements both in drug design and medicinal chemistry. A simple and sustainable one-pot aerobic… (More)
An efficient and versatile synthesis of a polycyclic diazinic system starting from oxazine has been developed using a two-step Michael/retro Michael and cyclization sequence. The substrates were synthesized with good to high yields giving rapid access to molecular diversity.
An unexpected acid-mediated cascade reaction induced by conjugate addition of sulfinamides to dienediones has been developed. This highly efficient Rauhut-Currier reaction enables the rapid, high-yielding construction of sulfonated cyclopentanes with three contiguous stereogenic centers in a single operation starting from simple sulfinamides. This process… (More)
An efficient ligand-promoted biomimetic aerobic oxidative dehydrogenative cross-coupling between arenes and nonbiased olefins is presented. Acridine as a ligand was found to significantly enhance the rate, the yield, and the scope of the reaction under ambient oxygen pressure, providing a variety of alkenylarenes via an environmentally friendly procedure.
