Quinolines have been studied for over a century as an important class of heterocyclic compounds and continue to attract considerable interest due to the broad range of biological activities they possess. The incorporation of the essential structural features of quinolines with a ferrocene moiety could provide new derivatives with unexpected and/or enhanced biological activities since several ferrocene derivatives have already been shown to be active against a number of tumors. For this reason, we investigated the synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted quinolines, such as 2-ferrocenylquinoline, by employing the molecular iodine catalyzed reaction between enolizable aldehydes and ferrocenyl imines, which were prepared by the condensation reactions of ferrocenecarboxaldehyde with aniline derivatives. As anticipated, these reactions produced 2-ferrocenylquinoline derivatives. By employing this ethodology, we synthesized 2-ferrocenylquinoline, 6-chloro-2-ferrocenylquinoline, 6-bromo-2-ferrocenyl-quinoline, 2-ferrocenyl-7-methylquinoline and 2-ferrocenyl-3,7-dimethylquinoline. Due to the ready availability of ferrocenylimines and aldehydes, this practical onepot method represents a versatile synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted quinolines.

Yazıcı, Ceyda; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Pyrazoles have been studied for over a century as an important class of heterocyclic compounds and continue to attract considerable interest due to the broad range of biological activities they possess. The electrophilic cyclization of the acetylenic hydrazones initiated by molecular iodine could provide new ways of synthesizing biologically active 4-iodopyrazole derivatives, which are important precursors for the synthesis of highly substituted pyrazole derivatives. For this reason, we investigated the syn...
Organic acids production from cheese-whey
Türkmenoğlu, Seçil; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi; Department of Environmental Engineering (2006)
In this study, production of organic acids from cheese-whey was studied. Optimization of organic acids production was performed in semi-batch and batch reactors. Two sets of experiments were performed. First set of experiments were performed in semi-batch reactors for the optimization of organic loading rate (OLR) and hydraulic retention time (HRT). As a result of Set 1 experiments optimum OLR was found to be 15 g COD l-1. Second set of experiments were performed in batch reactors by using the optimum OLR f...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl cycloheptadienones
Açıkgöz, Canet; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Synthesis of seven-membered ring systems such as cycloheptadienones has attracted a great deal of attention in organic chemistry since they are present in a variety of biologically important molecules. Incorporation of the essential structures of such compounds with a ferrocene moiety instead of an aryl group could provide subtances with enhanced antitumor activities since some ferrocene derivatives have already proved to be active against a number of tumors. To develop a ferrocenyl-substituted seven-member...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl substituted pyrazoles by sonogashira and suzuki-miyaura cross-coupling reactions
Karabıyıkoğlu, Sedef; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Pyrazoles constitute one of the most important classes of heterocyclic compounds due to their interesting chemical and biochemical features. Researchers have studied many pyrazole containing structures for almost over a century in order to investigate the various biological activities possessed by these molecules. A new and important trend in these studies is to produce ferrocenyl substituted pyrazoles since ferrocene attracts considerable interest in the research field of organometallic and bioorganometall...
