New alternative for sustainable organic synthesis: a simple way to obtain allylic amines

In the last few years, chemists have tried to adapt chemical reactions in order to comply with the principles of green chemistry. Consequently, our challenge is to use specific behaviors observed in ionic liquids (ILs) and transform them into a benefit on a reactive process. Is known that dual action as catalyst and solvent, conduces to more mild reaction conditions.

We have reported this behaviour of protic ionic liquids (PILs) as Ethyl Ammonium Nitrate (EAN).  Taking into account this, our goal is to use these conducts of PILs to develop alternative methods of interest in organic synthesis. In this sense, the allilyc amines are molecules that acquirer interest as building blocks in the path of synthesis of products with biological activity such as herbicides, antibiotics and insecticides. The methods for obtaining allylic amines are scarce and with a high number of stages. As a consequence, we have the purpose of making reactive systems of dienes and PIL base alkyl ammonium that facilitate the obtaining of such precursors through green synthetic strategies. Advantages of these strategies are that they are economic in stages and develop in more benign reaction conditions.
