Abstract

Cu2O nanoparticles/DMEDA (N,N′-dimethylethylenediamine) was proved to be an efficient catalyst system for amidation of aryl halides under mild condition. This method displayed excellent selectivity and the catalyst was recyclable without loss of activity. The low cost, simple operation and excellent yields make this approach attractive for industrial applications.
