Abstract

This project focuses on the development of a catalytic system for the direct conversion of aromatic C-H bonds to aromatic C-N bonds that does not require the prefunctionalization of the substrate and also avoids conditions too harsh for large molecules. Additionally, this project seeks to install functional groups useful in biologically active molecules to eliminate the need for further conversion. Finally, this project aims at demonstrating the versatility of this system, investigating reactions done on a variety of substrates and installing a variety of functional groups.
