Synthesis of Ferrocenyl Substituted Aziridines

Zeytinci, Serhat
Immobilization of tyrosinase enzyme was performed in the matrices obtained via copolymerization of terephthalic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl ethyl) ester (TATE) with pyrrole. During electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole, enzyme molecules were entrapped in the copolymer matrice. Activity measurements were performed by using Besthorn̕s Hydrazone method which includes spectrophotometric analysis of quinones produced by the enzyme. Enzyme electrodes were characterized in terms of maximum reaction rate (Vmax) and Michaelis-Menten constant (Km). In addition to kinetic parameters, stability of enzyme electrodes towards environmental conditions such as pH and temperature was investigated. Usage stability and shelf-life analysis were also examined. Wines, especially red wines, contain numerous biologically active compounds, the most important of which are polyphenols, whose nutritional importance is attributed to their antioxidant power. The amounts of phenolic compounds in different red wines were analyzed by using obtained enzyme electrodes. The phenolic compound determination using free enzyme cannot reflect the actual values since there are also naturally found inhibitors in red wines. Benzoic acid, cinnamic acid and sorbic acid were utilized to understand the behavior of immobilized tyrosinase in the conducting polymer matrices toward inhibition.


Synthesis and structure of cyclopropano-annelated homosesquinorbornene derivatives containing pyramidalized double bonds: Evidence for the sterical effect of a cyclopropyl. group on the degree of C=C double-bond pyramidalization
Saracoglu, N; Talaz, O; Azizoglu, A; Watson, WH; Balcı, Metin (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-07-08)
endo- and exo-2,3,4,7-tetrahydro-1H-1,4-methanobenzoeyeloheptene-7-carboxylic acid ethyl esters have been synthesized, and their Diels-Alder cycloaddition reactions with maleic anhydride, dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate and singlet oxygen have been investigated. The X-ray analysis of four adducts indicated the pyramidalization of the central double bond. Density functional theory calculations on the isolated products and model compounds showed excellent agreement between the experimental and theoretical det...

Tanyeli, Cihangir (Informa UK Limited, 2000-01-01)
The synthesis of alpha'-acyloxy-alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclic ketones from the corresponding alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclic ketones by using manganese (III) acetate in combination with 2-chloropropionic acid followed by subsequent Arbuzov and intramolecular Horner-Emmons cyclization reactions provided a convenient synthetic pathway to various butenolides 4a-d.
Synthesis of 1,2,3,5- tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives via 5-exo-dig type cyclization and stereoselective functionalisation of ferrocene derivatives
Kayalar, Metin; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2005)
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 meth...

The α-oxidation of aryl alkyl ketones using manganese(III) acetate in the presence of various carboxylic acids and (1S)-(+)-10-camphorsulfonic acid provided a convenient synthesis of α-acyloxy, α-(10-camphorsulfonyloxy), and α-hydroxy derivatives in good yield.
Chemoenzymatic synthesis of chiral hydroxymethyl cycloalkenols
Şenocak, Deniz; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Chiral cyclic alkenols with hydroxymethyl functionality are important structural units in many biologically active natural compouds such as prostaglandins, sesquiterpene antiviral agents, pentenomycins, xanthocidin, sarkomycin, etc. 1,3-cycloalkanediones are converted into bicyclic polyoxo derivatives with formaldehyde and trioxane in the presence of Lewis acid. Selective oxidation of the bicyclic compounds by using manganese(III)acetate followed by enzyme-catalyzed kinetic resolution afforded chiral bicycl...
