N-Heterocyclic carbene catalyzed direct carbonylation of dimethylamine

Author affiliations

Abstract

N-Heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalyzed direct carbonylation of dimethylamine leading to the formation of DMF was successfully accomplished under metal-free conditions. The catalytic efficiency was investigated and the turnover numbers can reach as high as >300. The possible mechanism was also proposed.
