tBuOK-triggered bond formation reactions

Author affiliations


Recently, inexpensive and readily available tBuOK has seen widespread use in transition-metal-free reactions. Herein, we report the use of tBuOK for S–S, S–Se, N[double bond, length as m-dash]N and C[double bond, length as m-dash]N bond formations, which significantly extends the scope of tBuOK in chemical synthesis. Compared with traditional methods, we have realized mild and general methods for disulfide, azobenzenes imine etc. synthesis.
