Palladium-Catalyzed Carboamination of Allylic Alcohols Using a Trifluoroacetaldehyde-Derived Tether

The selective palladium-catalyzed carboamination of allylic alcohols is reported on the basis of the use of an easily introduced trifluoroacetaldehyde-derived tether. Aminoalkynylation reactions were realized using alkynyl bromides and commercially available phosphine ligands. For aminoarylations, a new biaryl phosphine ligand, Fu-XPhos, was introduced to overcome a competitive Heck pathway. The carboamination products were obtained in high yields and diastereoselectivity. The tether could be easily removed to give value-added amino alcohol building blocks.
