Formal C–H amination of cyclopropenes

Author affiliations


A novel C(sp3)–H amination of trimethylsilyl-substituted cyclopropenes is described. This C–H amination proceeds via a tandem regioselective ene reaction between cyclopropenes and azodicarboxylate to generate a hydrazodicarboxylate intermediate followed by its site-selective allylic transposition.
