Eco-friendly cross-coupling of diaryl diselenides with aryl and alkyl bromides catalyzed by CuO nanopowder in ionic liquid

Author affiliations

Abstract

An eco-friendly cross-coupling reaction of aryl and alkyl bromides with diselenides using a catalytic amount of CuO nanopowder as a catalyst and an ionic liquid as a recyclable solvent is reported. The system shows high efficiency to catalyze this transformation, and in a green fashion due to the recyclable approach and the non-residual design protocol. This procedure has been utilized for the synthesis of a variety of diaryl selenides in good to excellent yields from the readily available aryl and alkyl bromides and diselenides.
