Abstract

We report here a new catalytic reaction in which, p-nitro azides are acylated by aldehydes to produce amides and molecular nitrogen in a single step. The transformation is believed to proceed via an electron transfer process mediated by the tert-butoxide ion, and catalysed by a thiazolium salt derived species.
