Dioxygen-Triggered Oxidative Cleavage of C-S Bond towards C-N Bond Formation
The research on the cleavage of C-C bond has been well developed. By comparision with this, the activation of C-S bond remains challenging. Herein, dioxygen-triggered oxidative cleavage of C-S bond has been achieved, delivering a series of N-containing heterocyclic compounds which are frequently found in pesticides and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, the potential ultility of this protocol was further demonstrated by gram-scale experiment. Mechanistically, dioxygen plays a key role in the cleavage of C-S bond towards C-N bond formation.
