Abstract

The direct oxidative conversion of simple, nonactivated alkenes into allylic amine derivatives represents a profound challenge to contemporary chemical synthesis. This article provides an overview on recent methodological developments and applications in the realm of modern palladium- and selenium-catalyzed oxidative allylic amination reactions.
