Different from the conventional synthesis methods and substrates, we designed a brand new method for synthesizing amides with platinum nanowires as catalysts and tert-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) as the oxidant. Influence of factors, such as the catalyst, solvents, and the reaction temperature, were studied to determine the optimal reaction conditions. In addition, we explored the substrate generality and observed excellent yields.
