A one-step rhodium catalyzed direct route from alkene to amide is presented via the hydroamidation reaction of cyclopentadiene and dicyclopentadiene with pyrrolidine. A homogeneous catalyst of (Rh(cod)Cl) 2 without additional phosphorus ligands was established giving a 90% yield of the respective...
Catalysis of silver nanoparticles, among the metal-based nanoparticles, has been of great interest in organic synthesis and has expanded rapidly in the past ten years because of nanosilver catalysts' unique reactivity and selectivity, stability, as well as recyclability in catalytic reactions. As...
