4-Amino-1,8-naphthalimides, potentially useful fluorescent probes in biological applications, are prepared via Ni(cod)(2)/IPr-catalyzed cross-couplings between 4-chloro-1,8-naphthalimide electrophiles and α,α,α-trisubstituted, primary alkylamines at room temperature. This method represents the first synthesis of 4-amino-1,8-naphthalimides using Ni-catalyzed C-N cross-coupling and provides the first examples of 4-amino-1,8-naphthalimides incorporating such bulky primary alkylamines, thereby highlighting the utility of Ni-catalyzed processes in synthesizing naphthalimide scaffolds that were inaccessible using established methods (S(N)Ar; Pd or Cu catalysis).
