Synthesis of 1,2,3,5- tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives via 5-exo-dig type cyclization and stereoselective functionalisation of ferrocene derivatives

Kayalar, Metin
A convenient and new method for the synthesis of 1,2,3,5-tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives starting from 1,3,-dicarbonyl compounds through acid catalyzed cyclization reaction is described. Alkylation of 1,3-dicarbonyl compound with propargyl bromide followed by one step cyclization with the introduction of primary amines in the presence of catalytic amount of triflouroacetic acid (TFA) affords the corresponding pyrrole derivatives in high yields. The investigations on the studies of developing a new method for catalytic and stereoselective functionalisation of ferrocene derivatives were summarized. Functionalisation studies were carried out in three main strategy the first one of which is carboxylation, second one is arylation and the last one is oxidative cross-coupling with a, β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds.
