Oxidative Coupling of Aryl Boron Reagents with sp(3)-Carbon Nucleophiles: The Enolate Chan-Evans-Lam Reaction

Oxidative Coupling of Aryl Boron Reagents with sp(3)-Carbon Nucleophiles: The Enolate Chan-Evans-Lam Reaction

Angewandte Chemie 55(5): 1894-1898

Reported is a versatile new oxidative method for the arylation of activated methylene species. Under mild reaction conditions (RT to 40 °C), Cu(OTf)2 mediates the selective coupling of functionalized aryl boron species with a variety of stabilized sp(3) -nucleophiles. Tertiary malonates and amido esters can be employed as substrates to generate quaternary centers. Complementing either traditional cross-coupling or SN Ar protocols, the transformation is chemoselective in the presence of halogen electrophiles, including aryl bromides and iodides. Substrates bearing amide, sulfonyl, and phosphonyl groups, which are not amenable to coupling under mild Hurtley-type conditions, are suitable reaction partners.
