A synthetic approach of isoindolinones through intramolecular amidation of ortho‐vinyl benzamides was reported. A variety of N‐aryl isoindolinone derivatives were prepared in moderate to excellent yields using perfluorobutyl iodide as oxidant.
A transition metal‐free approach for the generation of radical intermediates via EDA complexes had been developed. This approach enables a cross‐dehydrogenative C−O coupling of oximes with acetonitrile, ketones and esters with high yields and regioselectivities. Perfluorobutyl iodide was used as the unique electron acceptor to trigger a new radical formation. The radical pathway was confirmed by UV‐Vis...
