Atom economic synthesis of amidesvia transition metal catalyzed rearrangement of oxaziridines

Abstract

A mild synthetic route to amides involves imine oxidation to an oxaziridine followed by a transition-metal catalyzed rearrangement to the amide. This route shows potential for a greener pathway to amides. DFT studies showed a possible rearrangement pathway in the case of the Rh catalyst.
