1028 - Development of a one-pot palladium-catalyzed “borrowed hydrogen” process for the synthesis of substituted amines from nitroarenes and alcohols

Nicholas J Barna,, Jennifer L Rutherford, Lafayette College, United States

Palladium-catalyzed transfer hydrogenation of nitroarenes to aryl amines has been conducted using an alcohol as the hydrogen source. The resulting in situ-formed aldehyde or ketone then reacts with the aryl amine to form an imine, which can then be further reduced in situ to produce a substituted amine. We report our progress in the development of an efficient catalytic process, as well as our application of this method for the synthesis of indoles.
