ne catalysis for the direct C – H imidation and acyloxylation of arenes †


The photoexcited aryl ketone-catalyzed C–H imidation of arenes and heteroarenes is reported. Using 3,6dimethoxy-9H-thioxanthen-9-one as a catalyst in combination with a bench-stable imidating reagent, C–N bond formation proceeds with high efficiency and a broad substrate scope. A key part of this method is that the thioxanthone catalyst acts as an excited… (More)
