Copper-catalyzed Electrophilic Amination of Sp2 and Sp3 C-h Bonds (Hardcover) (Stacey L. Mcdonald)
About this item
This thesis reports the latest developments in the direct amination of various C-H bonds using an H-Zn exchange/electrophilic amination strategy. McDonald and co-workers reveal this approach to be a rapid and powerful method for accessing a variety of functionalized amines.
The material outlined in this book shows how McDonald achieved C-H zincation using strong, non-nucleophilic zinc bases and subsequent electrophilic amination of the corresponding zinc carbanions with copper as a catalyst and O-benzoylhydroxylamines as the electrophilic nitrogen source.
McDonald’s findings are of relevance to medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and materials science. Her thesis is a source of inspiration for scientists entering the field and students beginning their PhD in a related area.
