(Diacetoxyiodo)benzene or iodine(III) catalyst, insitu generated from iodobenzene precatalyst with Oxone, promotes the cycloisomerization-amination sequence of N-propargyl carboxamides with bis(sulfonyl)imides under mild conditions, thereby leading to the direct formation of oxazoles bearing nitrogen functional groups.
