Tertiary amine–containing cyclic motifs are prevalent in natural products and pharmaceutical lead targets. Inspired by these biological active molecules, one focus in our lab is the development of neutral aminyl radical chemistry in the synthesis of tertiary aliphatic amine–containing cyclic compounds. In this project, I investigated the mono- and tandem cyclization of aminyl radical with different types of olefins (terminal olefin, enone, and styrenyl). The effect of the hydrogen atom donor and the limitation of the reaction will be discussed.
