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!

  2. Yunyun Liu says:

    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.
