Transition-metal-nitrenoids intramolecular C—H insertion is one of the most effective methods to synthesize nitrogen-containing heterocycles. Using 2-azido-N,N-dibenzylacetamides as substrates, an iron-catalyzed intramolecular C(sp3)—H bond amination reaction under ligand-free and external oxidant-free conditions has been developed. A series of imidazolinones were synthesized in moderate to good yields.

Key words: iron catalysis, nitrene insertion, imidazolinone, synthesis of N-containing heterocycles
