Ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) is the inorganic compound with the formula (NH4)2Ce(NO3)6. This orange-red, water-soluble cerium salt is a specialised oxidizing agent in organic synthesis and a standard oxidant in quantitative analysis.
Ceric ammonium nitrate efficiently catalyzes the aza-Michael reaction of amines with α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds in water to produce the corresponding β-amino carbonyl compounds in very good yields under mild conditions. The reaction is procedurally simple and offers limited chemoselectivity, as aromatic amines were found to be unreactive. R. Varala, N. Sreelatha, S. R.
