CO2 promotes transamidation reactions as a traceless catalyst. In the presence of catalytic amounts of CO2, transamidation reactions were accelerated with primary, secondary, and tertiary amide donors. Various amine nucleophiles including amino acid derivatives were tolerated. In particular, N,O-dimethylhydroxyl amides (Weinreb amides) displayed a distinct reactivity.
