Aerobic oxidative amidation of alkynes using titanium oxide encapsulated cuprous iodide nanoparticles (CuI@TiO2)

Abstract

A catalyst consisting of titanium oxide encapsulated cuprous iodide nanoparticles was prepared via sol-gel method using inexpensive raw material and was harnessed successfully in oxidative amidation of alkynes via environmentally benign and sustainable protocol. The mechanism of action for this transformation was thoroughly discussed. The robustness of the catalyst was elucidated by the synthesis of diverse analogues of -ketoarylamide from variety of electron rich and poor substrates via a simple procedure in moderate to high yields, with no generation of toxic by-products, in good recyclability till five cycles, under solvent free and aerobic condition. The chemical nature, morphology and loading of the CuI@ TiO2 nanocatalyst were investigated by TEM, SEM, XPS, EDX, powder X-Ray, BET, TGA and ICP-MS.
