- A base-promoted cascade reaction for the regiospecific synthesis of substituted 3-hydroxyisoindolinones under transition-metal-free conditions is developed. The base-mediated C–C bond coupling and N-α-sp³C–H bond hydroxylation are involved in this procedure, which features high regioselectivity, efficiency, and environmental friendliness. Various substituted 3-hydroxyisoindolinones, including some bioactive molecules, were provided in up to 93% yield for 28 examples.
