Ruthenium-catalyzed ortho alkenylation of aromatic nitriles with activated alkenes via C-H bond activation.

Abstract

The ruthenium-catalyzed ortho alkenylation of substituted aromatic and heteroaromatic nitriles with activated alkenes providing ortho alkenylated aromatic and heteroaromatic nitriles in a highly regio- and stereoselective manner is described.
