Electrolysis promoted reductive amination of electron-deficient aldehydes/ketones: a green route to the racemic clopidogrel

Author affiliations

Abstract

An electrocatalytic reductive amination of electron-deficient aldehydes/ketones was developed, which could be used in the synthesis of functionalized tertiary amines and large scale preparation of racemic clopidogrel. A plausible mechanism involving an iminium cation intermediate was proposed.
