The title compound, N-benzo[c][1,2,5]thiazol-4-yl-3-trifluoromethylbenzamide (1) was synthesized by reacting 3-trifluoromethylbenzoyl chloride (4) and 4-aminobenzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (5). The compound was characterized by various spectroscopic methods (1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR, GC-MS) and its composition confirmed by elemental analysis. The importance of this compound lies in its possession of an N,N-bidentate directing group. Such a structural motif is potentially suitable for metal-catalyzed C-H bond functionalization reactions.
