Furthermore, we have disclosed the first oxytrifluoromethylation of allylamines with carbon dioxide (CO2) to synthesize important CF3-containing 2-oxazolidones via Cu-catalysis It is also the first time to utilize CO2, a nontoxic and easily available greenhouse gas, to tune the difunctionalization of alkenes from amino- to oxy-trifluoromethylation. Of note, this multi-component reaction is highly chemoselective, regioselective and diastereoselective under redox-neutral and mild reaction conditions.

Our group has developed the direct use of carbon dioxide in the lactamization and lactonization of alkenyl and heteroaryl C─H bonds to synthesize important 2-quinolinones and coumarin derivatives in moderate to excellent yields. Importantly, these transition-metal-free and redox-neutral processes are eco-friendly and desirable for the pharmaceutical industry. Moreover, these reactions feature a broad substrate scope, good functional group tolerance, facile scalability and easy product derivatization.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is not only a greenhouse gas but also an inexpensive, readily available and renewable carbon resource. It is very important to utilize such a one-carbon (C1) building block in organic synthesis to construct valuable heterocycles. However, it is very challenging due to its thermodynamic and kinetic stability and inertness. Although significant progress has been achieved,there are lots of limitations in reaction system and substrate scope in this field.
