Iron-catalyzed synthesis of benzoxazoles by oxidative coupling/cyclization of phenol derivatives with benzoyl aldehyde oximes

Author affiliations

Abstract

An iron-catalyzed oxidative coupling/cyclization reaction for the synthesis of benzoxazoles at room temperature is reported. This reaction was enabled by an inexpensive iron(III) catalyst by treating readily available phenol derivatives with benzoyl aldehyde oximes. Mechanistic studies show that benzoyl aldehyde oxime is not only used as a substrate, but also serves as an ancillary ligand to support the iron salt in the promotion of the transformation.
