- A highly para-selective amination of anilines with phenothiazines for producing various functionalized 10-aryl-10H-phenothiazines is reported. The oxidative amination reaction proceeds electrochemically at room temperature, thereby avoiding the use of metals and oxidizing reagents with excellent functional group tolerance and broad substrate scope.
