Direct Synthesis of Amides by Acceptorless Dehydrogenative Coupling of Benzyl Alcohols and Ammonia Catalyzed by a Manganese Pincer Complex: Unexpected Crucial Role of Base

Daw, Prosenjit ; Kumar, Amit ; Espinosa-Jalapa, Noel Angel ; Ben-David, Yehoshoa ; Milstein, David


Amide synthesis is one of the most important transformations in chemistry and biology. The direct use of ammonia for the incorporation of nitrogen functionalities in organic molecules is an attractive and environmentally benign method. We present here a new synthesis of amides by acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling of benzyl alcohols and ammonia. The reaction is catalyzed by a pincer complex of ...
