Iodine-catalyzed oxidative multiple C-H bonds functionalization of isoquinolines with methylarenes: an efficient synthesis of isoquinoline-1,3,4(2H)-triones

Abstract

An iodine-catalyzed multiple C-H bonds functionalization of isoquinolines with methylarenes via successively benzylic sp3 C-H iodination/N-benzylation/amidation/double sp2 C-H oxidation sequence is developed. This reaction utilizes un-functionalized isoquinolines and readily available methylarenes as starting materials, proceeds under metal-free conditions, and avoids muti-step experimental operation, to make it an efficent and practical method for the synthesis of N-benzyl isoquinoline-1,3,4-triones.
