Abstract

In the course of our investigations to find a novel catalyst for the cross-dehydrogenative coupling (CDC) reaction, it was discovered that antimony(V) serves as a co-catalyst with N-hydroxyphthalimide (NHPI) under aerobic conditions. This is a rare example of a catalytic use of antimony for an oxidative coupling reaction.
