Ruthenium(II) catalysed synthesis of unsaturated oxazolines via arene C–H bond alkenylation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Monoalkenylation of arene C–H bonds directed by an oxazoline group to afford bifunctional alkenes is described using [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 as the catalyst in the presence of 1,1′-binaphthyl-2,2′-diyl hydrogenphosphate (BNPAH) and of Cu(OAc)2·H2O under air. This reaction takes place under mild conditions in ethanol at 80 °C and tolerates the oxazoline function.
