Amination of Arylboronic Compounds via the Copper-Catalyzed Addition of Arylboronic Esters to Azodicarboxylates: N. Chatani and co-workers Synthesis 2015, DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1560468
Aromatic amino compounds and derivatives, such as hydrazines, play a role of paramount importance in a number of vital sectors including pharmaceuticals, materials, dyes and agrochemicals. The development of effective synthetic approaches to these compounds continues therefore to represent an area of vibrant research in chemistry. Recently the group of Professor Naoto Chatani at Osaka University (Japan) has reported in SYNTHESIS a new simple and effective method for achieving the synthesis of aromatic hydrazines.
