Synthesis and application of a novel asymmetric azo reagent: 1-(tert-butyl)-2-(4-chlorobenzyl) azodicarboxylate (tBCAD)

Synthesis and application of a novel asymmetric azo reagent: 1-(tert-butyl)-2-(4-chlorobenzyl) azodicarboxylate (tBCAD)
A series of novel asymmetric azo reagents, 1-(tert-butyl)-2-(4-substituted benzyl) azodicarboxylate, were prepared. The synthetic process has the advantage of simpleness, easy operation, mild reaction condition and high yield. The 1-(tert-butyl)-2-(4-chlorobenzyl) azodicarboxylate (tBCAD) was selected for its stability and convenience to handle, and its precursor can be recycled by recrystallization with toluene. The tBCAD and DIAD were applied to a wide variety of Mitsunobu reactions. The experimental results showed that the performance of tBCAD in Mitsunobu reaction was comparable to that of DIAD, while the stability of tBCAD was much better than DIAD. Thus, tBCAD can be a novel, stable, effective azo-reagent for the Mitsunobu reaction.
