A tethering directing group strategy for ruthenium-catalyzed intramolecular alkene hydroarylation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a new catalyst design for N-heterocycle synthesis that utilizes an alkene-tethered amide moiety as a directing group for aromatic C–H activation. This tethering directing group strategy is demonstrated in a ruthenium-catalyzed intramolecular alkene hydroarylation with N-aryl acrylamides to form oxindole products.
