Organocatalytic diimide reduction of enamides in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Bridged flavinium organocatalysts have displayed efficacy in the diimide mediated reduction of enamides in aqueous conditions. This represents the first diimide reduction of an electron rich alkene and offers a clean alternative to the use of alkylating agents for N-alkylation.
