Intramolecular cyclization of triflate/aniline

  1. Dec 4, 2007 #1
    I was wondering if anyone knew of any good catalysts to use for the intramolecular cyclization of a molecule containing -oTf and -NH2 (aniline) moieties. The only references I can find for such reactions between a triflate and an aniline -NH2 only involve 2 separate molecules. Would the same conditions work for an intramolecular rxn?

    What product are you after? An amide? A secondary amine?

    Secondary amine.

    I was going to try something like Pd dba and DPPF.
