First Ritter-type reaction of alkylbenzenes using N-hydroxyphthalimide as a key catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first Ritter-type reaction of alkylbenzenes with nitriles has been succesfully achieved by the use of N-hydroxyphthalimide (NHPI) as a key catalyst. Thus, treatment of ethylbenzene with ammonium hexanitratocerate(IV) (CAN) in the presence of a catalytic amount of NHPI in EtCN under argon produced the corresponding amide in good selectivity.
