K3PO4 mediates a mild sustainable protocol for the coupling of primary alkyl chlorides and bromides with amides. The reaction does not require strongly basic conditions, high temperatures, or the addition of an organometallic catalyst, thereby enabling access to a remarkably orthogonal scope of alkylated amide products in good yields.
