A highly efficient synthesis of 3-formyl imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine and imidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidine, under Cu-catalyzed aerobic oxidative conditions and by utilizing ethyl tertiary amines as carbon sources, is disclosed. A novel activation mode of ethyl tertiary amines in which simultaneous selective cleavage of C–C bond and C–N bond of ethyl group with molecular oxygen as terminal oxidant in this one-pot protocol is reported for the first time. This reaction features broad substrate scope, good functional group tolerance, as well as diversified and valuable products.
