Copper-catalyzed C(sp(3))-H functionalization of ketones with vinyl azides for the synthesis of substituted pyrroles has been developed. The method is a straightforward and efficient way to access a series of 2,3,5-trisubstituted-1H-pyrroles in modest to excellent yields with broad functional group tolerance under mild conditions.
A one-pot three-component reaction for the regioselective synthesis of thioarylated imidazoheterocycles from aryl halides and elemental sulfur using copper(I) iodide as a catalyst has been developed. Reactions proceed with high efficiency and afford thioarylated imidazoheterocycles in good yields with broad functional group tolerance.
Oxidative esterification of benzylic alcohols with a catalytic amount of HBr-H2O2 in aqueous medium under mild conditions is reported with a wide range of substrate scope for both benzylic and aliphatic alcohols. The conditions are also suitable for selective mono-esterification of ethylene glycol and glycerol. With catalytic amounts of HBr (20 mol%) and(More)
A wide range of stable vinyl selenone-modified furanosides has been synthesized for the first time. These 2π-partners undergo 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions with a wide range of organic azides to afford enantiopure trisubstituted triazoles. Furanosyl rings opened up during triazole synthesis to generate polyfunctionalized molecules, ready to undergo(More)
Synthesis of α-oxygenated ketones from styrenes mediated by phenyliodonium diacetate in the presence of molecular oxygen and N-hydroxyphthalimide or N-hydroxybenzotriazole has been described. Addition of carbonyl oxygen at the α-position and formation of C-O bond at the β-position of styrenes was achieved under metal-free conditions. The present method is(More)
It has been reported by us recently that p-nitrobenzyl bromide (PNBBr) can be synthesized from p-nitrotoluene (PNT) in high isolated yield with respect to available bromine in 2:1 Br(-)-BrO3(-) employed as brominating reagent. The reaction was conducted in ethylene dichloride (EDC) and the substrate was taken in excess to suppress dibromo impurity(More)
