  • Published 2017


Employing a green and efficient 2,2,2trifluoroacetophenone-catalyzed oxidation of alkenes, which utilizes H2O2 as the green oxidant, a novel and sustainable synthesis of indolines and pyrrolidines was developed. This constitutes a cheap, general and environmentally-friendly protocol for the synthesis of substituted nitrogen-containing heterocycles. A… (More)
