Abstract

Chemoselective N-acylation of amines with carboxylic acids as acyl electrophiles and Brønsted acidic IL [BMIM(SO3H)][OTf] as promoter is reported under both thermal and microwave irradiation to produce libraries of carboxamides in good to excellent yields after a simple workup. The protocol is compatible with structurally diverse 1° and 2° amines and works in the presence of sensitive functional groups such as thiols and phenols. The potential for recycling and reuse of the IL is also demonstrated.
