Summary of "Meta-Nitration of Arenes Bearing Ortho/Para Directing Group(s) via C-H Borylation."

Herein we report the meta-nitration of arenes bearing ortho/para directing group(s) using the iridium-catalyzed C-H borylation reaction followed by a newly developed copper(II)-catalyzed transformation of the crude aryl pinacol boronate esters into the corresponding nitroarenes in a one-pot fashion. This protocol allows the synthesis of meta nitrated arenes that are tedious to prepare or require multistep synthesis using the existing methods. The reaction tolerates a wide array of ortho/para-directing groups such as -F, -Cl, -Br, -CH3, -Et, -iPr -OCH3 and -OCF3. It also provides regioselective access to the nitro derivatives of π-electron deficient heterocycles such as pyridine and quinoline derivatives. The application of this method is demonstrated in the late-stage modification of complex molecules and also in the gram-scale preparation of an intermediate en route to the FDA-approved drug Nilotinib. Finally, we have shown that the nitro product obtained by this strategy can also be directly converted to the aniline or hindered amine via Baran's amination protocol.

Remote Para-C-H Acetoxylation of Electron-Deficient Arenes.

One formidable challenge in sp C-H activation is how to achieve high para selectivity on electron-deficient arenes because such site selectivity is disfavored by the electronic bias induced by the ele...

ortho Difluoroalkylation of Aryliodanes with Enol Silyl Ethers through a Rearrangement Enabled by a Fluorine Effect.

Herein, we unravel an intriguing effect of fluorine which allows difluoroenol silyl ethers to couple with aryliodanes in a redox-neutral manner, affording ortho-iodo difluoroalkylated arenes. The rema...

Iron-Catalyzed ortho C-H Arylation and Methylation of Pivalophenone N-H Imines.

Iron-catalyzed ortho C-H arylation and methylation reactions of pivalophenone N-H imines are reported. The pivaloyl N-H imine proved to serve as an excellent directing group for the arylation using di...
