Abstract

Using the widely available DMSO as the formylation reagent under oxidative conditions, an efficient Cu-catalyzed C3-formylation reaction of imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine C–H bonds to directly generate structurally sophisticated 3-formyl imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine derivatives has been developed. The reaction proceeded to generate products in good yields, and used the environmentally friendly molecular oxygen as the oxidant.
