Abstract

Singled out: Treatment of ketones with carbodiimides in the presence of a catalytic amount of either [{HMn(CO)4}3] or [Mn 2(CO)10] gave amides in good to excellent yields. In this reaction, the carbon-carbon single bond of a ketone is cleaved efficiently. The reaction also proceeded by using isocyanates instead of carbodiimides.
