Abstract

Formamides or parent amines were used as an amino group source for the silver-mediated amination of benzoxazoles. Although reactions with formamides proceeded at high temperatures, the direct amination with amines took place under much milder conditions (see scheme). Optically active amino groups could also be installed without racemization.
