Acid promoted radical-chain difunctionalization of styrenes with stabilized radicals and (N,O)-nucleophiles.
A difunctionalization of alkenes through sequential addition of a radical and a nucleophile has been developed, which is suggested to proceed by a radical chain mechanism not requiring a catalyst. An
Cascade Radical Annulation of 2-Alkynylthio(seleno)anisoles with Acetone or Acetonitrile: Synthesis of 3-Acetomethyl- or Cyanomethyl-Substituted Benzothio(seleno)phenes.
An efficient method for the direct preparation of 3-aceto(cyano)methyl-substituted benzothio(seleno)phenes has been achieved through C(sp3)-H bond activation of easily available acetone or
C(sp3)–H Bond Functionalization of Alcohols, Ketones, Nitriles, Ethers and Amides using tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide as a Radical Initiator
Recent progress on the functionalization of C(sp3)–H bonds of aliphatic alcohols, ketones, alkyl nitriles, and ethers with styrene or cinnamic acid using tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as a radical initiator is summarized.
Recent developments in the difunctionalization of alkenes with C–N bond formation
The difunctionalization of carbon–carbon double bonds, introducing two novel functional groups onto both sides of the carbon–carbon bond in one pot, has become more and more attractive as a powerful


Photochemical addition of sulphonyl cyanides to olefins
The photochemical addition of toluene-p-sulphonyl cyanide to hex-1-ene, cyclohexene, and norbornadiene is reported.
One-step remote oxidative cyanation of ketones and aldehydes
ConclusionA one-step general synthesis has been developed for the synthesis of-γ-and δ-cyano-ketones and cyanoacids, based on the remote oxidative cyanation of carbonyl compounds by the sodium
Acid-catalyzed oxidative radical addition of ketones to olefins.
A Brønsted acid catalyzed formation of ketone radicals is discovered via thermally labile alkenyl peroxides formed in situ from ketones and hydroperoxides, which are synthetically useful intermediates that can be further transformed into 1,4-diketones, homoaldol products, and alkyl ketones.
Free-radical addition of cyclopenta none and cyclohexanone to α-olefins and allyl ethers
A new method was developed for the synthesis of 5- and 6-keto carboxylic acids by the addition of cyclopentanone and of cyclohexanone in presence of t-butyl peroxide to α-olefins with subsequent
Synthesis of Oxindoles by Brønsted Acid Catalyzed Radical Cascade Addition of Ketones
Oxindoles bearing ketone side chains in the 3-position can be synthesized by Bronsted acid catalysis from N-aryl methacrylamides, ketones, and hydroperoxides. The cyclized products are presumably
Metal-free oxidative radical cascade addition/oxobutylation of unactivated alkenes with acetone towards 3-(3-oxobutyl)indolines.
A direct oxobutylation of N-allyl anilines with acetone was developed under metal-free and acid-free conditions. This reaction tolerates a series of functional groups to provide 3-(3-oxobutyl)
