Metal-free, highly efficient organocatalytic amination of benzylic C–H bonds

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new synthetic approach toward direct C–N bond formation through sp3 C–H activation has been developed under metal-free conditions. Both primary and secondary benzylic C–H substrates could react smoothly with various amines to give only mono-amination products with good to excellent yields.
