Gold(I) catalyzes the intermolecular hydroamination of alkynes with imines and produces α,α',N-triarylbisenamines: studies on their use as intermediates in synthesis.


α,α',N-triarylbisenamines have been efficiently formed and isolated for the first time. The synthesis is based on an unprecedented gold(I)-catalyzed double intermolecular hydroamination between N-arylamines and aryl alkynes. This reaction constitutes a new example of the intriguing behavior of gold as catalyst in organic synthesis. The reactivity of these… (More)
