Abstract

original image

Ein echter Sonnenschein: Eine einfache und effiziente Synthese von Benzoxazolen, Benzimidazolen und Benzothiazolen gelingt mithilfe eines Eintopfverfahrens, das durch eine photokatalytische Kaskadenreaktion angetrieben wird. Bei dieser metallfreien aeroben Oxidation von Aminen zu Iminen kommen Kohlenstoffnitrid und sichtbares Licht zum Einsatz (siehe Schema; mpg-C3N4=mesoporöses graphitisches Kohlenstoffnitrid).
