Cp*Rh(III)-Catalyzed Low Temperature C-H Allylation of N-Aryl-trichloro Acetimidamide.


The readily synthesized trichloro acetimidamide was found to be an excellent directing group for the directed C-H-allylation reactions. Depending on the allylating agent used, selectively either mono- or diallylated products were readily synthesized. Moreover, the trichloro acetimidamide directing group was found to be highly efficient even at lower… (More)
