Abstract: A new method is reported for the synthesis of symmetrical diaryldiselenides from aryl halides using selenoamide as an organic Se-donor reagent in the presence of copper (II) oxide nanoparticles. CuO nanoparticles were found to be an efficient and inexpensive catalyst for ligand-free C-Se bond formation with a series of symmetrical diaryldiselenides obtained in good to excellent yield.
Keywords: Diaryldiselenides ; Selenoamide ; Se-donor ; Copper (II) oxide ; Nanoparticles
