Synthesis of guanidines
An efficient Pd-catalyzed cascade reaction of azides with isonitriles and amines provides N-sulfonyl-, N-phosphoryl-, and N-acyl-functionalized guanidines in excellent yield. In addition, the less reactive intermediate benzoyl carbodiimide could be isolated in moderate yield.

Various thioureas derived from primary amines and carbamoyl-protected isothiocyanates react with the Burgess reagent to give the corresponding guanidines via either a stepwise or one-pot procedure. A selective deprotection of the N,N′-diprotected guanidines affords N-monoprotected guanidines.
