Abstract

A clean and efficient method for the N-alkylation of tryptamine and phenethylamine, employing alcs. as the alkylating agents, has been developed. The reaction proceeds via catalytic electronic activation, involving an iridium catalyst which activates the alc. by borrowing hydrogen from the substrate, returning it later in the catalytic cycle. Some examples of N-heterocyclization have been performed employing a diol as the substrate.
