SIMPLIFIED CADOGAN REACTION BY MICROWAVE ENHANCED NITRENE
However, despite these significant achievements, the scope of catalytic nitrene
transfers remains mainly confined to these two reactions, and, thus, limited when compared to the chemistry of carbenes.
Chemists from the US, Mexico, Europe, and China who specialize in nitrene
chemistry highlight how spectroscopy and calculations have been used to characterize various nitrene
intermediates since the previous monograph on them appeared three decades ago.
Unprecedented ring-enlargements to four-membered rings by 3+1 -cycloadditions employing isonitriles, carbenes and nitrenes
are envisioned, aryne insertions into the three-membered ring leading to indane systems are planned and a general concept for 3+3 -cycloadditions with 1,3-dipoles is presented paving the way to unusual syntheses of heterocycles.
After setting out principles and practice, they cover the photogeneration of carbon-centered radicals, heteroatom-centered radicals, biradicals and radical pairs, radical ions, carbocations and carbanions, and cargenes and nitrenes
When heated, the azides decompose, forming nitrenes
, which are easily inserted into the C-H bonds, forming amines or amides.
The book features a summary of SOC computations for various organic diradicals and triplet species with listings of all actual computed values, plus a large data set of experimental and computational results pertaining to nitrenes
