A soluble iron(II)-phthalocyanine-catalyzed intramolecular C(sp3)–H amination with alkyl azides
13. Herein, we describe a soluble iron(II)-phthalocyanine, [FeII(tBu4Pc)(py)2] (Pc = phthalocyaninato(2–)), as an effective catalyst in intramolecular C(sp3)–H bond amination, with alkyl azides as the nitrogen source, to afford the amination products in moderate to excellent yields with a broad substrate scope.
