Studies on the reaction of acyl phosphonates with aldehydes in the presence of proline

Yalçınkaya, Hatice
Acyl phosphonates are interesting precursors for the synthesis of biologically active compounds. In the first part, the acyl phosphonates are synthesized starting from the corresponding acyl chloride. The acyl chlorides are converted into acyl phosphonates by using trialkylphosphites. The reaction of acyl phosphonates with aldehydes in the presence of proline furnished not the suggested aldol products via proline catalyzed aldol reaction but bicyclic products via one pot tricomponent 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction. The formation of the bicyclic compound was suggested as followed; The formation of iminium salt of proline with aldehyde followed by decarboxylation furnished azomethine. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of the formed azomethine with carbonyl group of acyl phosphonate afforded substituted hexahydro pyrrolo oxazole structures. 1,3-Dipolar cycloaddition forms the basis of the most preparatively useful procedures for the synthesis of five-membered heterocycles. One example is the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of azomethine ylides (from imines) and alkenes, which allows the stereoselective synthesis of pyrrolidines or proline derivatives.


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...
Development of new synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of unusual isocoumarin and indole derivatives:The chemistry of homophthalic acid
Özcan, Sevil; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2007)
Many heterocyclic compounds containing nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur show wide range of physiological activities and their synthesis has always been attracted the interest of chemists. The aim of this research is to develop new synthetic methodologies leading to the synthesis of new derivatives of isocoumarines, indoles, isoquinolines, benzodiazepinones and quinazolines, which have been found to show important biological activities. Starting from homophthalic acid and bishomophthalic acid the corresponding ac...
Oxidative ring opening reactions of a-hydroxy ketones
Aybey, Ayşe; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Chiral polyfunctionalized 1,5-dicarbonyl compounds are important synthetic intermediates and starting materials for many biologically active compounds so their synthesis has a great importance in the literature. In the first step, 1,3-cyclohexandione and other b-diketone derivatives are protected under acid catalyzation and their corresponding b-keto enol ether derivatives are obtained. These b-keto enol ethers are then converted to a-acetoxy enones in racemic form by Mn(OAc)3 mediated oxidation. Enzymatic ...
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...
Synthesis of chiral lactones via the baeyer villiger oxidation of cyclic aromatic acetoxy ketones novel annulation reactions of 2-propynyl-1,3-dicarbonyl compounds to form pyrroles addition of acyl phosphonates to diethyl cyanophosphonate (depc)
Aybey, Asuman; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Chiral Baeyer-Villiger (BV) oxidation of cyclic ketones allows rapid access to asymmetric lactones as valuable intermediates in organic chemistry and frequently encountered precursors in enantioselective synthesis. In the first part, BV oxidation of functionalized ketones, especially cyclic -hydroxy and acetoxy ketones is described which could be a straightforward route to the -hydroxy lactones and -hydroxyalkanoic acid derivatives. The -acetoxylation of indanone, tetralone and chromanone derivatives by usi...
