An efficient protocol for the intermolecular amidoselenation of alkenes with
diphenyl diselenides and acetonitrile has been developed that affords a series of β-amidoselenides
in high yields under mild conditions. The preliminary experimental results support
the involvement of active benzyl radical species, and a radical pathway was therefore
proposed for the reaction.
Keywords: Alkenes, amidoselenation, radical, difunctionalization, β-amido-selenides, transformation.
