In this report, a highly efficient method for the room temperature installation of alkyl amino motifs onto the ortho position of anilines via Cu-catalyzed carboxamide-directed amination with alkylamines is described. This method offers a practical solution for the rapid synthesis of complex arylamines from simple starting materials and enables new planning strategies for the construction of arylamine-containing pharmacophores. A single electron transfer (SET)-mediated mechanism is proposed.
