DOI: anie.202319158

An efficient asymmetric remote arylation of C(sp3)−H bonds under photoredox conditions is described here. The reaction features the addition radicals to a double bond followed by a site-selective radical translocation (1,n-hydrogen atom transfer) as well as a stereocontrolled aryl migration via sulfinyl-Smiles rearrangement furnishing a wide range of chiral α-arylated amides with up to >99 : 1 er. Mechanistic studies indicate that the sulfinamide group governs the stereochemistry of the product with the aryl migration being the rate determining step preceded by a kinetically favored 1,n-HAT process.

Visible Light-Mediated Heterodifunctionalization of Alkynylazobenzenes for 2H-Indazole Synthesis

Org. Lett. 2024, ASAP
DOI: acs.orglett.4c00097

We disclose the heterodifunctionalization of alkynylazobenzenes promoted exclusively by visible light in the absence of any transition metal and/or photocatalyst. This reaction features excellent regioselectivity on a broad variety of substrates with perfect atom economy. Alcohols, carboxylic acids, thiols, amides, heterocycles, and even water are suitable substrates for the promotion of the oxyamination, sulfenoamination, and diamination reactions. In this manner, biologically active indazole scaffolds can be rapidly assembled from alkyne feedstocks.
