Reactions Catalysed by a Binuclear Copper Complex: Aerobic Cross Dehydrogenative Coupling of N-Aryl Tetrahydroisoquinolines.


Binuclear copper complex [{Cu(Sal)2 (NCMe)}2 ] (Sal=salicylate) was found to be an active catalyst for the aerobic oxidation of N-aryl tetrahydroisoquinolines to the corresponding iminium ions, which could be trapped by a wide range of nucleophiles to form coupled products. The reactions took place under 1 bar of O2 at room temperature with 1 mol % of the… (More)
