An oxidative cross-dehydrogenative-coupling reaction in water using molecular oxygen as the oxidant: vanadium catalyzed indolation of tetrahydroisoquinolines

Abstract

An aerobic oxidative cross-dehydrogenative coupling reaction between sp3 C–H and sp2 C–H bonds is developed by employing a vanadium catalyst (10 mol%) in an aqueous medium using molecular oxygen as the oxidant. This environmentally benign strategy exhibits larger substrate scope and shows high regioselectivity.
