A halogen bond-donor amino acid for organocatalysis in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein we report a halogen bond-donor amino acid, 4-iodotetrafluorophenylalanine, which behaves as a catalyst for the aqueous synthesis of bis-(heterocyclic)methanes. We also provide experimental evidence that halogen bonding is a plausible explanation for the observed catalytic effect.
