Copper-catalyzed borylative coupling of vinylazaarenes and N-Boc imines

Joshua J Smith, Daniel Best, Hon Wai Lam

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cu-catalyzed three-component couplings of vinylazaarenes, B2(pin)2, and N-Boc imines are described. Oxidation of the initially formed boronate gives azaarene-containing, Boc-protected amino alcohols with reasonable to good diastereoselectivities.
