Visible-light-promoted oxidation/condensation of benzyl alcohols with dialkylacetamides to cinnamides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Oxidative cross-coupling reactions of benzyl alcohols with N,N-dialkylacetamides were developed only employing oxygen as the terminal oxidant, efficiently providing a new, novel protocol for the construction of multifunctionalized cinnamides with the synergistic effects of KOH, organic photocatalyst eosin Y, and visible light irradiation at room temperature. A broad substrate scope and mild reaction conditions are the prominent features of this transformation.
