Abstract

Spectroscopic analysis of imidation of alkyl aryl sulfides with N-2,2,2-trichloro-1,1-dimethylethyloxycarbonyl azide 2 in the presence of (OC)Ru(salen) complex 1 strongly suggests that an addition compound of the azide 2 to 1 is the active species for the imidation, while the addition compound undergoes the undesired intramolecular C-H insertion onto the salen ligand of the complex in the absence of sulfide, directly or via the corresponding nitrene-ruthenium species.
