Nitrile-Assisted Oxidation over Oxidative-Annulation: Pd-Catalyzed α,β-Dehydrogenation of α-Cinnamyl β-Keto Nitriles

Abstract

A palladium-catalyzed oxidation reaction is disclosed where the nitrile functionality on the substrate simply changes the course of the reaction. Our previous finding showed that using Pd(II)-catalyst in the presence of benzoquinone as an oxidant, 2-cinnamyl-1,3-dicarbonyls provides functionalized furans via oxidative cyclization. When a nitrile group replaces with one of the carbonyl functionality of the same substrate, the oxidative cyclization was completely suppressed; instead, the oxidation at α,β-position occurred to provide α,β,γ,δ-diene containing β-keto nitriles.
