A copper-catalyzed oxidative C(sp(3))-H/N-H coupling of sulfoximines with simple alkanes was developed. This protocol involved C(sp(3))-N bond formation via a radical pathway and tolerated a series of functional groups, such as chloro, methyl and aryl, on the phenyl rings. Apart from sulfoximines, amides, saccharin and aniline also worked well to give the corresponding N-alkylated products.
