Selective N-alkylation of amines with alcohols by using non-metal-based acid-base cooperative catalysis.


Higher amines are widely used in both the bulk and fine chemical industry for the synthesis of fundamental materials, such as additives, dyes and agrochemicals. Therefore, the development of a selective N-alkylation method that is cost effective, salt free and environmentally benign is of considerable interest. Indeed, reactions involving the N-alkylation… (More)
