Jourjine, Ilya A. P.; Zeisel, Lukas; Krauß, Jürgen and Bracher, Franz (2021): Synthesis of highly substituted fluorenones via metal-free TBHP-promoted oxidative cyclization of 2-(aminomethyl)biphenyls. Application to the total synthesis of nobilone. In: Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry, Vol. 17: pp. 2668-2679

Highly substituted fluorenones are readily prepared in mostly fair to good yields via metal-and additive-free TBHP-promoted cross-dehydrogenative coupling (CDC) of readily accessible N-methyl-2-(aminomethyl)biphenyls and 2-(aminomethyl)biphenyls. This methodology is compatible with numerous functional groups (methoxy, cyano, nitro, chloro, and SEM and TBS-protective groups for phenols) and was further utilized in the first total synthesis of the natural product nobilone.
