Synthesis of tetrahydroquinoxalines

Recent Literature

The use of HBpin as a hydrogen source enables a metal-free environmentally benign, simple, and efficient transfer hydrogenation process of quinoxalines to provide the desired tetrahydroquinoxalines in good yields in the presence of Bu4NBr as a noncorrosive and low-cost catalyst.

SN2-type ring-opening of activated aziridines with 2-bromoanilines followed by a Pd-catalyzed intramolecular C-N bond formation enable a highly regio- and stereoselective route for the synthesis of racemic and nonracemic tetrahydroquinoxalines.
