Abstract

New ferrocene α-ketoamides and various ferrocene amides have been synthesized in good yields via homogeneous catalytic carbonylation of iodoferrocene in the presence of secondary amines as nucleophiles. With sterically less hindered amines, the appropriate choice of conditions made it possible to produce either the amides or the α-ketoamides with good selectivity. The reaction of amines with sterically hindered amino groups led to the amides as main products.
