Coupling of C(sp3)–H bonds with C(sp2)–O electrophiles: mild, general and selective†
Herein is reported the mild and general coupling of amine/ether C(sp3)–H bonds with various kinds of C(sp2)–O electrophiles with high selectivity and efficiency. Valuable allylic/benzylic amines are generated in moderate to excellent yields. The utility of this transformation is demonstrated by a broad substrate scope (>50 examples), good functional group tolerance and facile product modification.
