Camp, Jason, Lewis, William, Lester, Roy P., Bham, Travis and Bousfield, Thomas W. (2016) Exploring the Reactivity of 2-Trichloromethylbenzoxazoles for Access to Substituted Benzoxazoles. Journal of Organic Chemistry, 81 (24). pp. 12472-12477. ISSN 0022-3263

The reactivity of 2-trichloromethylbenzoxazoles towards various nucleophiles, under metal free or iron-catalyzed conditions, for the synthesis of substituted benzoxazoles is described. These methods allow for selective substitution at either the 2- or 2’- position of the benzoxazoles using the same starting materials / reagents. This approach allows for the controlled synthesis of a variety of key derivatives from a single 2-trichloromethylbenzoxazole starting material.
