Reinventing Hydroacylation: A Redox-Neutral Synthesis of Ketones by Coupling of Alkenes and Amides


Herein, we present a new concept for the hydroacylation of alkenes employing amides in a metal-free regime, proceeding by an entirely new mechanism and offering orthogonal reactivity to the conventional, metal-catalysed alternatives.
