SnAP reagents for the synthesis of piperazines and morpholines.


PMID 24502436

Abstract

Substituted piperazines and morpholines are valuable structural motifs in biologically active compounds, but are not easily prepared by contemporary cross-coupling approaches. In this report, we introduce SnAP reagents for the transformation of aldehydes into N-unprotected piperazines and morpholines. This approach offers simple, mild conditions compatible with aromatic, heteroaromatic, aliphatic, and glyoxylic aldehydes and provides mono- and disubstituted N-heterocycles in a single step.
