A new strategy has been developed for the oxidant- and base-free dehydrogenative coupling of N-heterocycles at mild conditions. Under the action of an iridium catalyst, N-heterocycles undergo multiple sp(3) CH activation steps, generating a nucleophilic enamine that reacts in situ with various electrophiles to give highly functionalized products. The dehydrogenative coupling can be cascaded with Friedel-Crafts addition, resulting in a double functionalization of the N-heterocycles.

The strategy for acceptorless dehydrogenative cyclization of o-aminobenzyl alcohols with ketones to quinolines in water has been accomplished. In the presence of [Cp*Ir(6,6'-(OH)2bpy)(H2O)][OTf]2, a series of desirable products were obtained in high yields. Notably, this research exhibits the potential for the construction of heterocycles via acceptorless dehydrogenative reactions in water catalyzed by water-soluble metal-ligand bifunctional catalysts.

A new benzylation protocol, enabling straightforward access to β-benzylated quinolines, has been demonstrated. By employing readily available [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 as a catalyst and O2 as a sole green oxidant, various 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines were efficiently converted in combination with aryl aldehydes into desired products in a step- and atom-economic fashion together with the advantages of excellent functional group tolerance and chemoselectivity, offering an important basis for the transformation of saturated N-heterocycles into functionalized N-heteroaromatics via a dehydrogenative cross-coupling strategy. Mechanistic investigations support that the reaction undergoes a monodehydrogenation-triggered β-benzylation mode.

Metal carbenes can undergo a myriad of synthetic transformations. Sulfur ylides are potential safe precursors of metal carbenes. Herein, we report cascade reactions that involve carbenoids derived from sulfoxonium ylides for the efficient and regioselective synthesis of indoles and pyrroles.

Oxidant controlled ionic liquid mediated cross-dehydrogenative coupling (CDC) of benzylamines with N-heterocycles having spor spcarbon resulted in the formation of C-benzoylated or alkenylated products. Benzoylation of N-heterocycles occurs via (NH)SOcatalyzed benzoyl radical formation. An oxidative alkenylation of N-heterocycles having C-spcarbon (2-methylaza-arenes) occurs via deamination of benzylamine followed by C-sp-H bond activation in high stereoselectivity.
