CH Functionalization of Enamides: Synthesis of β‐Amidovinyl Sulfones
A mild, practical and environmentally friendly strategy to prepare β‐amidovinyl sulfones has been developed based on the sulfonation of enamides or enecarbamates via visible‐light photoredox catalysis. Direct CH functionalizations of enamides or enecarbamates under the optimized conditions proceeded with a wide scope of substrates and remarkable selectivity to give functionalized vinyl sulfones with good to excellent yields.
