Abstract

original image

A fit catalyst for some aerobic exercise: A manganese oxide-based octahedral molecular sieve, OMS-2, could act as an efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the regioselective α-cyanation of various tertiary amines, including trialkyl, benzylic, and N,N-dialkylaniline derivatives using trimethylsilyl cyanide (TMSCN) as the cyano source and molecular oxygen as the terminal oxidant.
