TBAI-catalyzed oxidative C-H functionalization: a new route to benzo[b]phosphole oxides.

Abstract

The first metal-free, efficient TBAI-catalyzed radical addition/cyclization of diaryl(arylethynyl)phosphine oxides with toluene derivatives has been developed, affording a general, one-step approach to structurally sophisticated benzo[b]phosphole oxides via sequential C-H functionalization along with the formation of two new C-C bonds.
