Perspective: heterocycle synthesis via tandem copper cross-coupling reactions

Yunyun Liu and Jie-Ping Wan from Jiangxi Normal University in China review recent research progress in heterocycle syntheses using tandem reactions initiated by copper-catalysed coupling transformations.

Areas they include are:

  • Reactions initiated by C–N coupling
  • Reactions initiated by C–O coupling
  • Reactions initiated by C–S coupling
  • Reactions involving a double C–X coupling process

Our sister journal Chemical Society Reviews has just published a themed issue on cross-coupling reactions – why not take a look?

    Interesting! the atom economics of low cost copper catalysts and step economics of tandems reactions have been combined. More useful routes to heterocyclic compounds!

    It is an honor to be highlighted here. It will be more honorable if the papers just helps your research a little!

  4. Amazing to see what copper-catalysed coupling transformations can induce in terms of heterocycles.

    Would love to hear more about it.

    The last link is not working unfortunately.

    Thanks.
