Cross dehydrogenative coupling of N-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines (sp3 C–H) with indoles (sp2 C–H) using a heterogeneous mesoporous manganese oxide catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

We disclose a novel, heterogeneous catalytic approach for selective coupling of C1 of N-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines with C3 of indoles in the presence of mesoporous manganese oxides. Our work involves a detailed mechanistic investigation of the reaction on the catalyst surface, backed by DFT computational studies, to understand the superior catalytic activity of manganese oxides.
