The synthetic applications of o-halobenzyl and p-halobenzyl sulfones as precursors of 1,3- and 1,5-zwitterionic synthons, respectively, are described. Their alpha-sulfonyl carbanions, generated by means of the phosphazene base P2-Et or BuLi or K2CO3 under PTC conditions, reacted with different electrophiles such as alkyl halides, aldehydes, and electrophilic olefins. Palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling processes such as Heck, Suzuki, and Sonogashira reactions can be efficiently performed at the…

A new cascade halosulfonylation of 1,7-enynes toward 3,4-dihydroquinolin-2(1H)-ones via sulfonyl radical-triggered addition/6-exo-dig cyclization.
A new cascade three-component halosulfonylation of 1,7-enynes for efficient synthesis of densely functionalized 3,4-dihydroquinolin-2(1H)-ones has been established from readily accessible
Palladium-catalyzed ortho-sulfonylation of 2-aryloxypyridines and subsequent formation of ortho-sulfonylated phenols.
A palladium-catalyzed direct sulfonylation of 2-aryloxypyridines on the ortho-position of the benzene ring was developed using 2-pyridyloxyl as the directing group and sulfonyl chlorides as
Arylation of Allyl Alcohols in Organic and Aqueous Media Catalyzed by Oxime-Derived Palladacycles : Synthesis of β-Arylated Carbonyl Compounds
A 4-hydroxyacetophenone oxime-derived palladacycle catalyzes the Mizoroki–Heck reaction of allyl alcohols with aryl iodides, bromides, and chlorides in aqueous and organic solvents. The reaction
Palladium-catalyzed direct ortho-sulfonylation of azobenzenes with arylsulfonyl chlorides via C–H activation
A highly efficient and practical procedure to direct ortho-sulfonylation of azobenzenes' C–H bond with arylsulfonyl chlorides with good yields has been developed.
Solar photo-thermochemical syntheses of 4-bromo-2,5-substituted oxazoles from N-arylethylamides
Solar photo-thermochemical C(sp3)–H bromination, conducted efficiently in a specially designed reactor, was reported recently. In the present study, the more complex formation of
