With considerable progress in medicinal chemistry, the construction of heterocycles has receiveed increasing attention in the past decades. In particular, N-heterocycles are widely found to be biologically relevant scaffolds of natural products, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and functional materials. In this context, the directing group-assisted N-heterocycle synthesis via C-H bond functionalization is highly attractive in pharmaceutical industry. Thus, we recently reported the construction of N-heterocycles via the Rh(III)-catalyzed C-H functionalization followed by intramolecular cyclization. Moreover, our group recently focused on the synthesis and biological evaluation of N-heterocycles such as xanthones, chromones, indoles, azaindoles, indolines, acridines, and indolidinones, and etc.

We herein describe a brief summary of our recent works on the synthesis of 2-benzazepines,1 bridged bicycles,2 carbazoles,2 and 2-naphthols3 using Morita-Balyis-Hillman (MBH) adducts as novel C-H allylation sources under Rh(III) catalysis. Additionally, we present the unexpected reactivity and selectivity of phosphonium salts (Wittig reagents) on the reductive C2-alkylation of pyridine and quinoline N-oxides, leading C2-alkylated pyridines and quinolines.4 The ability to alkylate pyridines and quinolines is also important for their further development as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals, and for other purposes.
