The graphene oxide (GO) assisted allylic alkylation of thiophenes with alcohols is presented. Mild reaction conditions and a low GO loading enabled the isolation of a range of densely functionalized thienyl and bithienyl compounds in moderate to high yields (up to 90%). The cooperative action of the Brønsted acidity, epoxide moieties, and π-surface of the 2D-promoter is highlighted as crucial in the reaction course of the present Friedel-Crafts-type protocol.

A copper-catalyzed Friedel-Crafts propargylation/hydroamination/aromatization sequence is described. In the presence of a catalytic amount of CuI, this sequential reaction can convert ethynyl benzoxazinanones and indoles into a diverse set of 3,3'-biindoles with high efficiency and selectivity. Moreover, the synthesis of other indole-heteroaryl molecules and the catalytic asymmetric formation of axially chiral 3,3'-biindoles are demonstrated.

Intermolecular alkylations of electron-deficient arenes proceed with good para selectivity. Palladium catalysts were used to generate nucleophilic alkyl radicals from alkyl halides, which then directly add onto the arenes. The arene scope and the site of alkylation are opposite to those of classical Friedel-Crafts alkylations, which prefer electron-rich systems.

The mechanism and selectivity of the asymmetric Friedel-Crafts (F-C) alkylation reaction between indole and chalcone catalyzed by chiral N, N'-dioxide-Sc(III) complexes were investigated at the M06/6-311+G(d,p)//M06/[LANL2DZ,6-31G(d)](SMD,CH2 Cl2 ) level. The reaction occurred via a three-step mechanism: (i) the C3 -Cβ bond formation by interacting the most mucleophilic C3 center of indole with the most electrophilic Cβ center of chalcone; (ii) the abstraction of the proton at the C3 atom of indole by counterion OTf- ; (iii) proton transfer from HOTf to the Cα atom of chalcone, generating the F-C alkylation product...

Because of their diverse structure, high porosity, and tunable functionality, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are of great interest for diverse applications, including catalysis. However, the poor hydrostability of most reported MOFs hinders their catalytic applications seriously. In addition, the development of an effective method to improve the catalytic activity of MOFs is another challenge. Here, we report for the first time the development of a double-solvent strategy to fabricate MOFs inside silica nanopores...

The development of metal-catalysed methods to functionalize inert C-H bonds has become a dominant research theme in the past decade as an approach to efficient synthesis. However, the incorporation of carbon monoxide into such reactions to form valuable ketones has to date proved a challenge, despite its potential as a straightforward and green alternative to Friedel-Crafts reactions. Here we describe a new approach to palladium-catalysed C-H bond functionalization in which carbon monoxide is used to drive the generation of high-energy electrophiles...

This report describes the stereoselective synthesis of 3-azido-tetralins, -chromanes, and -tetrahydroquinolines via a tandem allylic azide rearrangement/Friedel-Crafts alkylation. Exposure of allylic azides with a pendant trichloroacetimidate to catalytic quantities of AgSbF6 proved optimal for this transformation. This cascade successfully differentiates the equilibrating azide isomers, providing products in excellent yield and selectivity (>25 examples, up to 94% yield and >25:1 dr). In many cases, the reactive isomer is only a trace fraction of the equilibrium mixture, keenly illustrating the dynamic nature of these systems...

A novel triphenylphosphine-based porous polymer (TPDB) with a high Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area was synthesized through Friedel-Crafts alkylation of triphenylphosphine and α-dibromo-p-xylene. Then, the functional hydroxyl groups were successfully grafted onto the polymer framework by post modification of TPDB with 3-bromo-1-propanol (BP) and triethanolamine (TEA). The resulting sample TPDB-BP-TEA was characterized by various techniques such as FT-IR, TG, SEM, EDS mapping, ICP-MS, and N2 adsorption-desorption...

The N-containing hyper-cross-linked polymers with different porosity and polarity were prepared from 4-vinylbenzyl chloride and 4-vinyl pyridine by the suspension polymerization and Friedel-Crafts reaction. A carbonization process by KOH chemical activation was carried out for the N-containing hyper-cross-linked polymers, and hence a series of N-doped porous carbons (NDPC) was easily fabricated. These porous materials were comparatively evaluated for CO2 adsorption. The NDPC were much more efficient than the N-containing hyper-cross-linked polymers for the CO2 capture and the CO2 uptake had a linear correlation to the ultramicropore volume (d ≤ 0...

A selective oxidative para-acylation of unprotected anilines with methyl groups in N-heteroarylmethanes was achieved. This transformation proceeds under mild metal-free reaction conditions to produce the corresponding valuable diarylmethanones in good to high yields, featuring high site-selectivity, high functional-group-tolerance, gram-scale synthesis and easy product-derivation. Preliminary mechanistic studies revealed that the present oxidative para-acylation would take place via a Friedel-Crafts-type process of in situ imines and the steric hindrance might be the key issue for the high regio-selectivity...

A visible-light-engaged 2-fold site-selective alkylation of indole derivatives with aliphatic ethers or alcohols has been accomplished for easy access to symmetric 3,3'-bisindolylmethane derivatives. The experimental data suggest a sequential photoredox catalysis induced radical addition and proton-mediated Friedel-Crafts alkylation mechanism.

Transition-metal-catalyzed cross-coupling has emerged as an effective strategy for chemical synthesis. Within this area, direct C-H bond transformation is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly processes for the construction of new C-C or C-heteroatom bonds. Over the past decades, rhodium-catalyzed C-H functionalization has attracted considerable attention because of the versatility and wide use of rhodium catalysts in chemistry. A series of C-X (X = C, N, or O) bond formation reactions could be realized from corresponding C-H bonds using rhodium catalysts...

The synthesis of azide functional microporous organic nanotube networks (N3-MONNs) via a Friedel-Crafts hyper-cross-linking reaction is reported. Subsequently, a general method for obtaining heterogeneous catalysts through a Cu-catalyzed alkyne-azide reaction is presented. The small-molecule catalysts such as 2,2,6,6,-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oyl and 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)pyridine can be anchored into the MONNs. Owing to the hierarchically porous structure and high surface area, these catalysts show high activity in selective oxidation of alcohols and acylation reaction, respectively...

The use of transition-metal catalysis to enable the coupling of readily available organic molecules has greatly enhanced the ability of chemists to access complex chemical structures. In this work, an intermolecular coupling reaction that unites organotriflates and aldehydes is presented. A unique catalyst system is identified to enable this reaction, featuring a Ni(0) precatalyst, a tridentate Triphos ligand, and a bulky amine base. This transformation provides access to a variety of ketone-containing products without the selectivity- and reactivity-related challenges associated with more traditional Friedel-Crafts reactions...

Described herein are syntheses of the naturally occurring polyketides (-)-tetrapetalones A and C and their respective enantiomers. The employed strategy involves initial assembly of a masked N-aryl tetramic acid which is advanced via a highly selective conjugate addition/intramolecular Friedel-Crafts acylation sequence to deliver a key azepine intermediate. Application of recently developed C-H activation chemistry and subsequent Heck cyclization delivers the aglycone framework in an overall 12 steps. Resolution of the aglycone via stereospecific glycosylation with an enantiopure glycosyl donor followed by separation of the derived diastereomers enables further advancement to either (+)- or (-)-tetrapetalones A and C...

A free-radical-promoted aryl/heteroaryl C-H silylation using hydrosilane was developed. This cross-dehydrogenative silylation enables both electron-rich and electron-poor aromatics to afford the desired arylsilanes in unique selectivity. A "para-selectivity" was observed by examination of over 54 examples. This exceptional orientation is quite different from that in Friedel-Crafts C-H silylation or transition-metal-catalyzed dehydrogenative silylation.

The enantioselective total synthesis of (+)-gracilamine (1) is described. The strategy features a diastereoselective phenolic coupling reaction followed by a regioselective intramolecular aza-Michael reaction to construct the ABCE ring system. The configuration at C3a in 1 was controlled by the stereocenter at C9a, which was selectively generated (91 % ee) by an organocatalytic enantioselective aza-Friedel-Crafts reaction developed by our research group. This synthesis revealed that the absolute configuration of (+)-gracilamine is 3aR, 4S, 5S, 6R, 7aS, 8R, 9aS...

Since overactivation of NMDA receptors is associated with neurodegenerative disorders, the design and development of subunit-selective NMDA receptor antagonists are of great interest. In order to avoid the formation of quinone-like intermediates as starting point for degradation the benzylic OH group of the lead compounds 2 was replaced by an electron rich vinyl or homologous hydroxymethyl moiety. The Bi(OTf)3 catalyzed intramolecular Friedel-Crafts alkylation of 9a represents the key step in the synthesis of 1-vinyl substituted tetrahydro-3-benzazepine 10...
