Copper-catalyzed arene amination in pure aqueous ammonia

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple protocol for copper-catalyzed arene amination using aqueous ammonia without any additional ligands and organic coordinating solvents has been developed. The reaction pathway via a Cu(I)/Cu(III) mechanism is proposed based on the results of control experiments as well as DFT calculations.
