SO2F2-Mediated One-Pot Synthesis of Aryl Carboxylic Acids and Esters from Phenols through a Pd-Catalyzed Insertion of Carbon Monoxide

SO2F2-Mediated One-Pot Synthesis of Aryl Carboxylic Acids and Esters from Phenols through a Pd-Catalyzed Insertion of Carbon Monoxide
Wan-Yin Fang, Jing Leng, Hua-Li Qin
A one-pot Pd-catalyzed carbonylation of phenols into their corresponding aryl carboxylic acids and esters through the insertion of carbon monoxide has been developed. This procedure offers a direct synthesis of aryl carboxylic acids and esters from inexpensive and abundant starting materials (phenols, SO2F2 and CO) under mild conditions. This method tolerates a broad range of functional groups and is also applicable for the modification of complicated natural products. Straight as an ArOH: A practical, direct dehydroxylative conversion of phenols into their corresponding aryl carboxylic acids and esters has been developed. This procedure utilized the abundant and inexpensive supply of sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2), carbon monoxide (CO), and phenols (ArOH) to provide an attractive synthesis of structurally ubiquitous and widely used carboxylic acid derivatives with broad scope and good functional-group tolerance.
