Palladium-catalyzed intramolecular reductive olefin hydrocarbonation: benzylic hydrogen serving as a new hydrogen donor

Author affiliations

Abstract

A palladium-catalyzed intramolecular hydrocarbonation of unactivated alkenes was achieved, in which toluene is used as a hydrogen donor for the first time. The radical transfer hydrogenation is designed and realized based on the Bond Dissociation Energy (BDE) value. A toluene derivative, which is cheap, readily available and easy to handle, serves as a new hydrogen donor in radical involved reactions, providing a novel and promising perspective for future reductive reactions.
