The diverse biological activities of nitrogen-containing compounds make the construction of the C–N bond of great importance. As N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide, one of the most abundant chemical feedstock, has a dual behaviour, i.e. as an electrophilic fluorination and amidation source, it attracts the attention of synthetic chemists for exploitation. This review comprehensively summarizes the significant progress of the efficient and mild amidation reactions, with an emphasis on approaches for the generation of nitrogen-centered intermediates, related mechanisms and new synthetic chemistry methods that offer opportunities to overcome obstacles in pharmaceutical applications. In this perspective, we discuss the developments in the amidation reaction using NFSI in the past decade. We discuss the recent progress, challenges and future outcomes in the area of amidation chemistry using commercially available NFSI.

Impact craters, which can be considered the lunar equivalent of fossils, are the most dominant lunar surface features and record the history of the Solar System. We address the problem of automatic crater detection and age estimation. From initially small numbers of recognized craters and dated craters, i.e., 7895 and 1411, respectively, we progressively identify new craters and estimate their ages with Chang'E data and stratigraphic information by transfer learning using deep neural networks. T...

Abstract Cascade engineered synthesis of the drug butamben (n-butyl-p-aminobenzoate), a local anaesthetic, which is used for the treatment of chronic pain, is presented here. A new multifunctional heterogeneous catalyst was synthesized, characterized and used for the direct synthesis of n-butyl-p-aminobenzoate by hydrogenation and esterification. A mixture of p-nitrobenzoic acid, n-butanol, hydrogen, acetonitrile as solvent and catalyst was used and hydrogenated in which hydrogenation precedes e...

Herein, we report on a photochemical three-component reaction of aryldiazoacetates with NFSI and cyclic ethers. This method allows the introduction of both fluorine and a short ether sidechain using 1,4-dioxane as solvent in high yields via an ylide pathway as demonstrated by DFT calculations (26 examples, up to 99% yield).

Direct conversion of cheap methylarenes to benzylic amines, which are essential structural units of important drugs, is of great significance. However, the known methodologies suffer from the requirement of noble metal catalysts, heavy metal residues or strong oxidants. Herein, the first biocompatible iron-catalyzed benzylic C (sp3)–H amination of methylarenes with N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide is described. The reactions of methylarenes bearing electron-donating groups and electron-withdrawing gro...

Copper-catalyzed 1,3-aminoazidation of arylcyclopropanes with N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide (NFSI) and trimethylsilyl azide (TMSN3) has been established, facilely and efficiently affording a wide range of 1,3-diamine derivatives in moderate to good yields under mild conditions. It represents the first example of 1,3-diamination of cyclopropanes by simultaneously introducing two different nitrogen sources, which might provide a new route to ring-opening 1,3-bisfunctionalization of cyclopropanes.

A TEMPO-catalysed direct amination of arene through C–H bond cleavage employing N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide (NFSI) as the amination reagent in good to excellent yields with broad arene scope in the absence of any metal, ligand or additive is reported. Unlike previous transition metal-catalysed aminations in which high reaction temperatures are usually necessary, this novel reaction at room temperature is the first example of C–H amination with NFSI that is realised via organocatalysis. The probab...

Abstract null null A facile copper-catalyzed amination in C-3 position of 2H-indazoles using commercially available N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide (NFSI) as an amidating reagent was established in this paper. The results revealed broad substrate scope in moderate to good yields under mild conditions. The described procedure involves a radical addition process whereby new C N bonds are formed, and it provides a new protocol for the synthesis of functionalized 2H-indazoles.

Efficient methods for the synthesis of fluorinated compounds have been intensively studied, recently. Development of practical fluorinating reagents is indispensable for this purpose. Herein, bench-stable electrophilic fluorinating reagents were synthesized as N -fluorobenzenesulfonimide (NFSI) substitutes. Reagents obtained by replacing one of the NFSI sulfonyl groups with an acyl group led to the highly selective monofluorination of silyl enol ethers with suppression of undesired overreaction,...

A cobalt-catalyzed aminofluorination reaction of styrenes with N-fluorosulfonamides serving as both the amination and fluorination agents has been developed. The switch of selectivity in this catalytic reaction from aminofluorination to diamination could be easily achieved by the addition of 1.0 equiv of PPh3. Both transformations tolerated a wide array of substrates under mild reaction conditions.
