Abstract

Facile visible-light promoted copper-catalyzed aerobic oxidative C–N coupling between 2-aminopyridine and terminal alkynes at room temperature via C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C triple bond cleavage is described. This reaction allows direct synthesis of biologically important pyridyl amides by utilization of commercially available starting materials without the need for bases/external oxidants.
