Electrophilic α-amination reaction of β-ketoesters using N-hydroxycarbamates: merging aerobic oxidation and Lewis acid catalysis.

Abstract

The copper-catalyzed α-amination of carbonyl compounds using nitrosoformate intermediates as the electrophilic source of nitrogen is reported. The reaction merges aerobic oxidation and Lewis acid catalysis. The scope of the reaction is broad in terms of both the N-substituted hydroxylamines and the β-ketoesters. The new methodology harnesses the power of… (More)
