Oxindole synthesis by palladium-catalysed aromatic C–H alkenylation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A strategy involving palladium-catalysed aromatic C–H functionalisation/intramolecular alkenylation provides a convenient and direct synthesis of 3-alkylideneoxindoles. In the presence of 5 mol% of PdCl2MeCN2 and AgOCOCF3, a wide variety of N-cinnamoylanilines gave 3-alkylideneoxindoles in moderate to good yield.
