Synthesis of sultams and related compounds


Recent Literature

Highly strained β-sultams, sulfonyl analogues of β-lactams, were prepared enantio- and diastereoselectively by tertiary amine catalyzed [2 + 2] cycloaddition reactions. β-Sultams are practical precursors of highly enantioenriched β-aminosulfonyl derivatives of biological interest.

Ring-closing metathesis (RCM) enables the synthesis of various of N-substituted five-membered sultams in good to excellent yields by  reaction. As many sultams precipitated from the reaction mixture, an easy separation by filtration was possible.

A one-pot method for the Sonogashira coupling and cyclization of 2-bromobenzenesulfonamides and terminal alkynes allows access to various substituted benzosultams regioselectively in excellent yields.

An efficient amidation reaction of saturated C-H bonds catalyzed by a unique disilver(I) complex is reported. The reaction is stereospecific and practical for the construction of amine-containing molecules.
