Pd-Catalyzed intramolecular allylic C–H amination of 1,1-disubstituted alkenyl amines with various allylic tethers (X = O, NMs, CH2) was developed. This process allows for the divergent synthesis of 1,3-X,N-heterocycles through a regioselective allylic C–H cleavage and π-allylpalladium formation. Particularly noteworthy is the use of substrates containing a labile allylic moiety and new simple catalytic systems capable of promoting highly chemo- and regioselective allylic C–H amination by overcoming significant challenges.
