NaOH-Catalyzed Imine Synthesis: Aerobic Oxidative Coupling of Alcohols and Amines

Authors


Abstract

The convenient transition-metal-free synthesis of imines through oxidative coupling of alcohols and amines is reported. The reaction is catalyzed by NaOH (10 mol-%) and is performed with air as an oxidant in the absence of any co-solvent.
