Palladium-catalyzed four-component carbonylation of allenes, alcohols and nitroarenes
In this communication, a highly selective palladium-catalyzed carbonylative four components procedure for the transformation of allenes, alcohols and nitroarenes has been developed. The desired 2-aminomethyl substituted 3-arylacrylates were produced in good yields with Mo(CO)(6) as the solid CO source. Furthermore, nitroarenes have been used as reaction partners and oxidant in this catalytic system. Additionally, further synthetic application of our obtained products has been realized as well and alpha-alkylidene beta-lactams were prepared. (C) 2019 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
