Abstract

Pd(OAc)2-mediated dehydrogenation of an alkyl group to a double bond or a η3-allylic complex via sp3 C-H bond activation and allylic oxidation is reported. A novel redox is proposed for this double oxidation under oxidant-free conditions. A catalytic protocol using benzoquinone as the stoichiometric oxidant has also been developed for the dehy- drogenation of cyclopentylcarboxamides.
