Recent advances in transition metal-catalyzed N-atom transfer reactions of azides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transition metal-catalyzed N-atom transfer reactions of azides provide efficient ways to construct new carbonnitrogen and sulfurnitrogen bonds. These reactions are inherently green: no additive besides catalyst is needed to form the nitrenoid reactive intermediate, and the by-product of the reaction is environmentally benign N2 gas. As such, azides can be useful precursors for transition metal-catalyzed N-atom transfer to sulfides, olefins and C–H bonds. These methods offer competitive selectivities and comparable substrate scope as alternative processes to generate metal nitrenoids.
