Synthesis of 1,2-chloroamines


Recent Literature

The use of diphenyl selenide as a Lewis base catalyst enables a mild chloroamidation of a wide rand of olefinic substrates including starting materials with acid labile functional groups.

A practical, regio- and diastereoselective synthesis of vicinal chloramines from electron-deficient olefins and Chloramine-T is promoted by Brønsted acids in water. This novel protocol is efficient, mild, ecofriendly, and broadly applicable for the aminochlorination of various electron-deficient olefins including α,β-unsaturated ketones, cinnamate, and cinnamide.

The regio- and stereoselective aminochlorination of α,β-unsaturated ketones with N,N-dichloro-p-toluenesulfonamide (4-TsNCl2) and CuOTf as catalyst provides an easy access to vicinal haloamino ketones, with excellent regioselectivity and good yields. Aromatic and aliphatic enones give opposite regioselectivity.

Radical halo-nitration of alkenes proceeds easily by radical addition of nitrogen dioxide generated by thermal decomposition of iron(III) nitrate nonahydrate and subsequent trapping of the resultant radical by a halogen atom in the presence of a halogen salt. Application of this method to synthesis of nitroalkenes is also described.
