Rhodium-catalyzed regioselective amidation of indoles with sulfonyl azides via C–H bond activation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Direct C-2 amidation of indoles was reported using sulfonyl azides as the amino source to release N2 as the single byproduct. This reaction exhibits high functional group tolerance and regioselectivity, providing a variety of 2-amino substituted indoles in high to excellent yield. The procedure is robust, reliable, and compatible with water and air.
