Understanding the behavior of N-tosyl and N-2-pyridylsulfonyl imines in CuII-catalyzed aza-Friedel-Crafts reactions.

Abstract

The different behavior of N-tosyl imines and N-(2-pyridyl)sulfonyl imines in Cu (II)-catalyzed AFCR is described. DFT theoretical calculations on the mode of coordination of the copper atom to both types of substrates allow understanding this different reactivity.
