Hypervalent Iodine Reagent for Introduction of Indoles via C-H Activation of Arenes

Hypervalent Iodine Reagent for the Introduction of Indoles via C-H Activation of Arenes

N-H-indole BX [I1126] is a stable hypervalent iodine compound used for the introduction of an indole ring via C-H bond activation of (hetero)arenes. In the presence of a rhodium or ruthenium catalyst, N-H-indole BX can be used to regioselectively introduce an indole ring into arenes with directing groups. In this reaction, the indole ring can be introduced in a manner that is hard to achieve by conventional methods due to the natural nucleophilicity of indole ring. Furthermore, the indole ring can be introduced at the 6- and 8-position of pyridinones and quinoline-N-oxides, respectively.

(IMes)-Copper Complex for Methylenation and Grignard Reactions

(IMes)-Copper Complex for Methylenation and Grignard Reactions

Chloro(1,3-dimesitylimidazol-2-ylidene)copper(I) [C2422] is an effective catalyst for the methylenation of a variety of aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes and ketones with trimethylsilyldiazomethane and triphenylphosphine. The methylenation reaction is applied to a one-pot methylenation-Diels–Alder cyclization, and a one-pot methylenation-intramolecular Heck reaction. C2422 also catalyzes the allylic substitution reactions with Grignard reagents.

Aldol Reaction

Aldol Reaction

The aldol reaction is an addition reaction of a ketone or an aldehyde with a hydrogen atom at the α-position and another ketone or aldehyde to give a β-hydroxy carbonyl compound. In this reaction, an enol or an enolate, generated by the treatment of the carbonyl compound with an acid or a base, nucleophilically adds to the other carbonyl compound to give the corresponding target compound.
