Nickel-Catalyzed Reductive Defunctionalization of Esters and Amides to Aromatic Hydrocarbons

Abstract

Removal of ester and amide group is of fundamental significance in organic syntheses. Under non-catalytic conditions, hydride sources are chiefly used for their reduction. Recently developed Ni-catalyzed one-pot reductive activation of esters and amides followed by tandem C-CO bond cleavage- decarbonylation facilitates their cleavage to aromatic hydrocarbons. Isolation and characterization of key reaction intermediates provides insight into this acyl C-O bond activation pathway.
