Abstract

original image

One-pot synthesis: An efficient amino-directed one-pot synthesis of N[BOND]H carbazoles from unprotected 2-aminobiaryl compounds is reported. The free amino unit acts as both a directing group for ortho C[BOND]H activation and a functional group for construction of an N-heterocyclic ring (see scheme).
