Synthetic applications of Pd(II)-catalyzed C-H carboxylation and mechanistic insights: expedient routes to anthranilic acids, oxazolinones, and quinazolinones.


A Pd(II)-catalyzed reaction protocol for the carboxylation of ortho-C-H bonds in anilides to form N-acyl anthranilic acids has been developed. This reaction procedure provides a novel and efficient strategy for the rapid assembly of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules, such as benzoxazinones and quinazolinones, from simple anilides… (More)
