Catalytic Enantioselective Carbon-Oxygen Bond Formation: Phosphine-Catalyzed Synthesis of Benzylic Ethers via the Oxidation of Benzylic C-H Bonds.
Benzylic alcohols and ethers are common subunits in bioactive molecules, as well as useful intermediates in organic chemistry. In this Communication, we describe a new approach to the enantioselective synthesis of benzylic ethers through the chiral p

Nickel Dual Catalysis.
Protecting-group-independent cross-coupling of α-alkoxyalkyl- and α-acyloxyalkyltrifluoroborates with aryl and heteroaryl bromides is achieved through application of photoredox/nickel dual catalysis. Reactions occur under exceptionally mild condition

A general strategy for organocatalytic activation of C-H bonds via photoredox catalysis: direct arylation of benzylic ethers.
Direct C-H functionalization and arylation of benzyl ethers has been accomplished via photoredox organocatalysis. The productive merger of a thiol catalyst and a commercially available iridium photoredox catalyst in the presence of household light di

Dual Catalysis Strategies in Photochemical Synthesis.
The interaction between an electronically excited photocatalyst and an organic molecule can result in the genertion of a diverse array of reactive intermediates that can be manipulated in a variety of ways to result in synthetically useful bond const

Enantiospecific intramolecular Heck reactions of secondary benzylic ethers.
Enantioenriched methylenecyclopentanes are synthesized by stereospecific, nickel-catalyzed Heck cyclizations of secondary benzylic ethers. The reaction proceeds in high yield and enantiospecificity for benzylic ethers of both π-extended and simple ar

Catalytic enantioselective oxidative cross-coupling of benzylic ethers with aldehydes.
The first one-pot enantioselective oxidative coupling of cyclic benzylic ethers with aldehydes has been developed. A variety of benzylic ethers were transformed into the corresponding oxygen heterocycles with high enantioselectivity. Mechanistic expe

Imidazolylchromanones containing non-benzylic oxime ethers: synthesis and molecular modeling study of new azole antifungals selective against Cryptococcus gattii.
A series of imidazolylchromanone oximes containing phenoxyethyl ether moiety, as found in omoconazole, were synthesized and evaluated against yeasts (Candida albicans and Cryptococcus gattii) and filamentous fungi (Aspergillus fumigatus and Exophiala

Azaindole synthesis through dual activation catalysis with N-heterocyclic carbenes.
A convergent, transition-metal-free synthesis of 2-aryl-azaindoles has been developed. The interception of a reactive aza-ortho-azaquinone methide intermediate by an acyl anion equivalent generated through carbene catalysis provides high yields, a wi

Photoredox Dual Catalysis.
Nickel/photoredox catalysis is used to synthesize indolines in one step from iodoacetanilides and alkenes. Very high regioselectivity for 3-substituted indoline products is obtained for both aliphatic and styrenyl olefins. Mechanistic investigations

Synthesis of tetra-substituted imidazoles and 2-imidazolines by Ni(0)-catalyzed dehydrogenation of benzylic-type imines.
Ni(0)-catalyzed dehydrogenation of benzylic-type imines was performed to yield asymmetrical tetra-substituted imidazoles and 2-imidazolines. This was achieved with a single operational step while maintaining good selectivity and atom economy. The cat
