- An efficient copper-catalyzed three-component cyclization for the construction of highly functionalized pyrimidine derivatives from readily available amidines, styrenes and fluoroalkyl halides is developed. This protocol distinguishes itself by the formation of three new C–C/C–N bonds and a new six-membered ring through a radical addition/oxidation/cyclization sequence in a one-pot manner.
