Abstract

Direct C-H acylations and carbamoylations of heterocycles can now be readily achieved without requiring any conventional metal, photocatalyst, electrocatalysis, or light activation, thus significantly improving on sustainability, costs, toxicity, waste, and simplicity of the operational procedure. These mild conditions are also suitable for gram-scale reactions and late-stage functionalizations of complex molecules, including pharmaceuticals, N,N-ligands, and light-sensitive molecules.
