Synthesis of Benzoxazinones

Recent Literature


Solvent-assisted grinding enables a mild and convenient synthesis of 2-substituted 4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-ones, 2-aminobenzoxazin-4-ones, and 2-amino-4H-3,1-benzothiazin-4-ones from N-substituted anthranilic acid derivatives in the presence of 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine and catalytic triphenylphosphine via a rapid cyclodehydration.

A facile and efficient copper-catalyzed method for the synthesis of 4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-one derivatives is based on a tandem intramolecular C-N coupling/rearrangement process. This method provides a new and useful strategy for construction of N-heterocycles.

A series of substituted benzoxazinones were synthesized from N-(o-bromoaryl)amides by palladium-catalyzed carbonylation with paraformaldehyde as the carbonyl source, which is inexpensive, stable, and easy to use.

A palladium-catalyzed carbonylation of 1-azido-2-iodobenzenes in the presence of amines provides a broad range of 2-aminobenzoxazinone derivatives in good yields. By using organic azides as the substrates, external oxidant usage can be successfully avoided and only N2 is formed as byproduct.
