The direct oxidative N-acylation reaction of primary amides with aryl/α,β-unsaturated aldehydes was achieved in the presence of an azolium salt and an inorganic base using 3,3′,5,5′-tetra-tert-butyldiphenoquinone as the oxidant. The reaction provides an efficient approach for the synthesis of N-sulfonylcarboxamides, N-sulfinylcarboxamides, and dicarboxyimides in good yield.
