: The anti-Markovnikov hydroazidation of alkenes has been accomplished under visible-light irradiation by using [Ir(dF(CF3 )ppy)2 (dtbbpy)]PF6 as the photocatalyst and trimethylsilyl azide as the azidating agent. The reactions were greatly facilitated by water, the beneficial effect of which can be attributed to its participation in the reaction as the hydrogen donor, as indicated by deuterium isotope experiments. The reactions proceed under solvent free conditions in the presence of water. 4-Dimethylaminopyridine also exhibited a beneficial effect on the reactions. The present method enabled hydroazidation of several types of unactivated alkenes with good yields and high regioselectivity.

A copper-catalyzed dichloromethylazidation of alkenes using commercially available BrCCl2H as a stoichiometric dichloromethylating reagent has been reported. Mechanistic studies indicated that a dichloromethyl radical was involved in the catalytic cycle. This transformation has demonstrated mild conditions, high reactivity, excellent functional-group tolerance, and a broad substrate scope, and thus it has offered a new solution for difunctionalization of alkenes to make diverse transformable dic...

Reported herein is a novel iron-catalyzed, DTBP-mediated carboazidation of alkenes using cycloalkanes, CH2Cl2, CHCl3 and CCl4 as alkylating reagents to generate electrophilic or nucleophilic alkyl radicals. Mechanistic studies suggested that the reaction proceeded via the addition of alkyl radicals to alkenes followed by an iron-mediated ligand transfer process. The reaction is unique as it is applicable not only to diversely functionalized electron rich alkenes, but also to electron-poor olefin...

We describe a (salen)Mn(III)-catalyzed three-component reaction of aldehydes, olefins, and sodium azide for the installation of two useful groups (CO and N3) into the double bond. Traditionally, (salen)Mn(III) in conjunction with iodosobenzene is a classical catalysis system for epoxidation of olefins. Owing to the highly competitive oxygenation approaches, it is a true challenge to establish a distinct strategy for the exploration of new olefin transformations based on this (salen)Mn(III) catal...

: Despite significant recent progress in copper-catalyzed enantioselective hydroamination chemistry, the synthesis of chiral N-arylamines, which are frequently found in natural products and pharmaceuticals, has not been realized. Initial experiments with N-arylhydroxylamine ester electrophiles were unsuccessful and, instead, their reduction in the presence of copper hydride (CuH) catalysts was observed. Herein, we report key modifications to our previously reported hydroamination methods that le...

A CuH-catalyzed enantioselective hydroamidation reaction of vinylarenes has been developed using readily accessible 1,4,2-dioxazol-5-ones as electrophilic amidating reagents. This method provides a straightforward and efficient approach to synthesize chiral amides in good yields with high levels of enantiopurity under mild conditions. Moreover, this transformation tolerates substrates bearing a broad range of functional groups.

The first example of an azidotrifluoromethoxylation of styrenes has been achieved by synergistic visible-light-mediated photoredox and silver catalysis. Trifluoromethyl arylsulfonate (TFMS) and the Zhdankin reagent were used as the trifluoromethoxylation reagent and the azide source, respectively. A good functional group tolerance and mild reaction conditions of this method are applicable to late-stage azidotrifluoromethoxylation of complex small molecules. Furthermore, the mechanistic investiga...

A well-defined low-coordinate β-diketiminatocobalt(II) alkyl complex is reported as an active precatalyst for the selective alkene cyclohydroamination of unprotected primary amines under mild conditions (rt–90 °C). The reaction mechanism has been investigated by deuterium-labeling, kinetics, and stoichiometric experiments and in-depth computational DFT studies. On the basis of these studies, we propose a stepwise noninsertive mechanism that features a rate-determining nucleophilic attack of the ...

We herein report an iron-catalyzed direct diazidation method via activation of bench-stable peroxyesters promoted by nitrogen-based ligands. This method is effective for a broad range of olefins and N-heterocycles, including those that are difficult substrates for the existing olefin diamination and diazidation methods. Notably, nearly a stoichiometric amount of oxidant and TMSN3 are sufficient for high-yielding diazidation for most substrates. Preliminary mechanistic studies elucidated the simi...

Copper-catalyzed intermolecular carboamination of alkenes with α-halocarbonyls and amines is presented with 42 examples. Electron rich, electron poor, and internal styrenes, as well as α-olefins, are functionalized with α-halocarbonyls and aryl or aliphatic amines. Mechanistic investigations suggest the reaction is proceeding through addition of a carbon-centered radical across an olefin followed by oxidation to form a 5-membered oxocarbenium intermediate and subsequent nucleophilic ring opening...

Abstract The azido group is found in large numbers of natural products, drugs, biochemicals and materials and to date, many elegant and useful methods for the synthesis of organic azides and their transformations have been documented. In this review, we provide a summary of the state of the art of radical azidation for the construction of C(sp3)-N3 bonds. There is a specific emphasis on the synthetic reactions involving C(sp3)-H azidation, decarboxylative azidation and difunctionalized azidation...

Incorporation of water has been revealed to successfully facilitate visible-light photoredox catalysis of indole leading to increased production of C2-quaternary indolinone. The water-promoted photoreaction of indole under catalyst-free conditions by a household compact fluorescence light was also demonstrated. The antiproliferative activity of the synthesized indolinones was evaluated against three human cancer cell lines.

ADAMTS-5 is a major protease involved in the turnover of proteoglycans such as aggrecan and versican. Its aggrecanase activity has been directly linked to the etiology of osteoarthritis (OA), identifying ADAMTS-5 as a pharmaceutical target for OA treatment. However, most existing ADAMTS-5 inhibitors target its active site and therefore suffer from poor selectivity. Here, using a novel approach, we have designed a new class of sugar-based arylsulfonamide inhibitors, which are selective for ADAMTS...

This work studies the photochemical and thermal decompositions of azidoacetonitrile (N 3 CH 2 CN) from both the experimental and theoretical points of view. The data of the photochemical experiments are taken from the literature, while the thermal decomposition have been carried out by us. In addition, we have performed ab initio calculations of the multiconfigurational type [complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF) and the multistate multireference perturbation theory (MS-CASPT2)]. ...

Organic azides serve as synthetically useful surrogates for primary amines, a functional group which is ubiquitous in bioactive and medicinally relevant molecules. Historically, the formal hydroazidation of simple activated olefins and styrenes has proven difficult due to the inherent propensity of these compounds to oligomerize. Herein is disclosed a method for the anti-Markovnikov hydroazidation of activated olefins, catalyzed by an organic acridinium salt under irradiation from blue LEDs. Thi...

Anti-Markovnikov hydroazidation of unactivated alkenes using ABX2014;N3 as an initiator has been developed at room temperature, wherein hydrogen azide (HN3) acts as both hydrogen and azidating agent. Notably, the HN3 reagent was generated from azidotrimethylsilane (TMSN3) and acetic acid in situ. The reaction itself displays broad substrate scope, good yields and excellent regioselectivities.
