Fe-Catalysed oxidative C–H/N–H coupling between aldehydes and simple amides

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel oxidative coupling of aldehydes with simple amides, most likely involving a radical process, was achieved through the use of an iron catalyst. Various amides were utilized as substrates to easily construct imides by coupling with aldehydes. A catalytic cycle involving the benzoyl halide intermediate is proposed based on our experimental results.
