Abstract

6,7-Dihydroquinolin-8(5H)-one oxime (L3) was found to serve as a superior ligand for the CuI-catalyzed N-arylation of imidazoles with aryl iodides, bromides, and electron-deficient chlorides in water. Moreover, the CuI/L3 catalyst system enabled the coupling reactions to take place smoothly with high yields under a low catalyst loading (0.1–1 mol% CuI and 0.2–2 mol% L3).
