The synthesis of triazoles via the three-component coupling reaction of unactivated terminal alkynes, allyl carbonate, and trimethylsiyl azide under the Pd(0)-Cu(I) bimetallic catalyst is developed. The reaction most probably proceeds through the formation of a pi-allylpalladium azide complex and a copper-acetylide followed by a successive [3 + 2](More)
A new and efficient strategy for the synthesis of substituted quinolines via electrophilic cyclization is developed. The intramolecular cyclization of 1-azido-2-(2-propynyl)benzene 1 proceeds smoothly in the presence of electrophilic reagents (I(2), Br(2), ICl, NBS, NIS, and HNTf(2)) in CH(3)NO(2) at room temperature or in the presence of catalytic amounts(More)
A one-pot procedure for the regiocontrolled synthesis of both 2-allyl- and 1-allyl-1,2,3-triazoles via the three-component coupling (TCC) reaction between nonactivated terminal alkynes, allyl carbonate, and trimethylsilyl azide (TMSN(3)) under a palladium and copper bimetallic catalyst has been developed. To accomplish the regioselective synthesis of the(More)
Artificial photosynthesis, specifically H2O dissociation for CO2 reduction with solar energy, is regarded as one of the most promising methods for sustainable energy and utilisation of environmental resources. However, a highly efficient conversion still remains extremely challenging. The hydrogenation of CO2 is regarded as the most commercially feasible(More)
The reaction of 2-alkynyl-1-methylene azide aromatics 1 with iodine and/or other iodium donors, such as the Barluenga reagent (Py2IBF4/HBF4) and NIS, gave highly substituted cyclization products, namely, the 1,3-disubstituted 4-iodoisoquinolines 2, in good to high yields. Not only simple 2-alkynyl benzyl azides 1a-j and their substituted analogues 1k-u and(More)
Two facile deallylation protocols have been developed for the preparation of N-unsubstituted triazoles and tetrazoles. The first protocol is a direct deallylation using a combination of a catalytic amount of nickel complex, NiCl2(dppe), and a stoichiometric amount of Grignard reagent, tBuMgCl. The second protocol is a stepwise deallylation through(More)
The intramolecular hydroamination of alkynes tethered with amino group 1 in the presence of catalytic amounts of Pd(PPh3)4 and PPh3 in benzene at 100 degrees C proceeded smoothly without the use of any additional acid source to afford five- and six-membered nitrogen heterocycles 2 in good to excellent yields. A compulsory addition of carboxylic acid as a(More)
The palladium-catalyzed three-component beta-alkyl-alpha-allylation reaction of activated olefins has been achieved. For example, in the presence of 5 mol % of Pd(PPh3)4, the reaction of benzylidenemalononitrile 1a with Et3B and allyl acetate 2a in THF proceeded smoothly at 40 degrees C to give the corresponding beta-ethyl-alpha-allylated product 3a in 81%(More)
A novel and efficient strategy for one-step synthesis of allylated quinolines and isoquinolines via palladium-catalyzed cyclization-allylation of azides and allyl methyl carbonate is developed for the first time. The results indicated that the regioselective synthesis of allyl- and diallyl-substituted quinolines/isoquinolines depends on different(More)
The synthesis of tetrazoles was achieved via the palladium-catalyzed three component coupling (TCC) reaction; The TCC reaction of malononitrile derivatives, allyl acetate and trimethylsilyl azide proceeds very smoothly under a catalytic amount of Pd(PPh3)4 to give 2-allyltetrazoles, and further the TCC reaction of various activated cyano compounds, allyl(More)
