Hydrogen bond assisted activation of a dinitrile towards nucleophilic attack

Author affiliations

Abstract

The possibility of tunable regioselective activation of a dinitrile towards nucleophilic attack was demonstrated. For that, a sulfo-arylhydrazone unit was introduced into malononitrile and the thus formed intramolecular hydrogen bond systems assisted specific nucleophilic attacks to the cyano moieties leading to a variety of amidines, carboxamides and iminoesters depending on the nucleophiles and conditions used.
