Synthesis of homoallylic amines


Recent Literature

A three-component condensation of aldehydes, benzyl carbamate and allyltrimethylsilane, which affords corresponding protected homoallylic amines in excellent yields, is catalyzed by iodine.

A palladium complex catalyzes two transformations in one pot: formation of allylsilane from allyl trifluoroacetate using hexamethyldisilane and subsequent imine allylation. A three-component reaction was developed where preformed imines were replaced with aldehydes and anisidine. Under these reaction conditions various aldehydes react smoothly to afford homoallylic amines.

Triallylborane-amine adducts can be used as stoichiometric allylating agents for efficient aminoallylation reactions of carbonyl compounds in methanol. Moreover, copper catalysis enables a diastereoselective allylation of Ellman’s imine.

A copper-catalyzed ring-opening hydroamination of methylenecyclopropanes with polymethylhydrosiloxane and O-benzoylhydroxylamines provides homoallylamines in very good yields. The cyclopropane C-C bond cleavage occurs selectively at the more congested proximal position.

A convenient and efficient method for aminobromination of alkylidenecyclopropanes is reported. This is exemplified in the stereoselective preparation of N-[(Z)-3-bromobut-3-en-1-yl]-p-toluenesulfonamides by using p-toluenesulfonamide and N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) as nitrogen and bromine sources, respectively.
