Gold nanoparticles supported on titanium dioxide: an efficient catalyst for highly selective synthesis of benzoxazoles and benzimidazoles

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly efficient and selective reaction for the synthesis of 2-substituted benzoxazoles and benzimidazoles catalyzed by Au/TiO2 has been developed via two hydrogen-transfer processes. This reaction has a good tolerance to air and water, a wide substrate scope, and represents a new avenue for practical C–N and C–O bond formation. More importantly, no additional additives, oxidants and reductants are required for the reaction and the catalyst can be recovered and reused readily.
