Metal-free diamination of alkenes employing bromide catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A unique metal-free intramolecular diamination of alkenes based on bromide catalysis is reported that uses only potassium bromide and sodium chlorite avoiding any use of transition metal. This unprecedented halide catalysis is of general applicability, uses economic reagents, can be conveniently up-scaled and proceeds under mild and selective conditions that surpass all conventional transition metals in scope.
