Chemistry and Pharmacology
-Palladium-catalyzed reaction of acidic anilines with (Z)-2-butene-1,4-diyl dicarbonate affords N-aryl-4-vinyloxazolidin-2-ones. The success of the reaction depends on the acidity of the aniline and requires in situ conversion of the dicarbonate into carbamate carbonate by nucleophilic attack of the aniline conjugate base followed by palladium-catalyzed intramolecular cyclization.
