    A general copper-catalyzed carbonylative cross-coupling between amines and alkyl iodides is reported. Using a simple combination of catalytic amounts of copper(I) chloride and N , N , N' , N" , N" -pentamethyldiethylenetriamine in the presence of sodium hydroxide under carbon monoxide pressure, a broad range of alkyl iodides and amines can be efficiently coupled to the corresponding amides that are obtained in good to excellent yields. Notable features of this process - the first one relying on a base metal catalyst - include the availability and low cost of the catalytic system, its successful use with primary, secondary, tertiary alkyl iodides and all classes of amines - with no or limited competing nucleophilic substitution without CO incorporation - as well as its efficiency with complex alkyl iodides and amines . Mechanistic studies demonstrated that a radical pathway is operative and the key role of CO.© 2022 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
