Abstract

original image

A new domino synthesis of 2-arylbenzoxazinones has been developed by M. Beller and co-workers. In their Communication on page 12246 ff., 19 different benzoxazinones were produced in good yields (65–91%) by palladium-catalyzed carbonylative coupling of commercially available 2-bromoanilines and (hetero)aryl bromides. The key step of this transformation is the chemoselective carbonylation of the aryl bromide. Moreover, a one-pot synthesis of 2,3-diarylquinazolinones was demonstrated exemplarily.
