A simple α-C-H amination of cyclic ether with indole/carbazole derivatives has been accomplished by employing copper(II) chloride/bipy as the catalyst system. In the presence of the di-tert-butyl peroxide oxidant, cyclic ethers such as tetrahydrofuran, 1,4-dioxane, and tetrahydropyran successfully undergo C-H/N-H cross dehydrogenative coupling (CDC) with various carbazole or indole derivatives in good-to-excellent yields.
