Addition of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds to the cycloheptatriene derivatives

Südemen, M. Burak
The one electron oxidant Mn(OAc)3 has been used for years for the oxidative addition of 1,3-dicarbonyls to alkenes to give dihydrofuranes. Since cycloheptatriene is in equilibrium with its valance isomer norcaradiene, it will be interesting to study the reaction of CHT derivatives with Mn(OAc)3 in the presence of 1,3-dicarbonyls. In our research, we have observed that unsubstituted cycloheptatriene gave CHT based products. However, when electron withdrawing -CN group was attached to C-7 position of CHT we obtained norcaradiene based products. We have also observed that there exist an equilibrium between [3+2] addition products through 1,5-hydride shift. In addition, we obtained dihydrofurane derivatives in the presence of Mn(OAc)3 from compounds which have already formed C-C bond between 1,3- dicarbonyl and alkene. Formation of dihydrofurane derivatives from these compounds brought up two questions; whether cyclization is going over oxygen atom or not and whether reaction involves a cyclopropane intermediate or not. Despite all efforts, we could not manage to synthesize the required material for the investigation of these questions.


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...

Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, IM; Ozgul, E; Kandemir, CG (Informa UK Limited, 1996-01-01)
2-Substituted epichlorohydrins have been synthesized by starting with 1,2-dichloro acetone and various alkyl and aryl halides via dichlorohydrins followed by cyclization. The reactive 2-substituted epichlorohydrins were subjected to nucleophilic attacking of azide and cyanide ions to afford corresponding beta-azido alcohols and alpha,beta-unsaturated nitriles.
Oxidation of Primary Alcohols to Aldehydes with N-Halamine-Containing Polymers
Akdağ, Akın; Öztürk, Perihan (Georg Thieme Verlag KG, 2013-11-12)
Polymeric N-halamines have been previously employed for organic reactions such as sulfide oxidation. In the present study, we employed polymeric N-halamines to oxidize primary alcohols selectively to the corresponding aldehydes in excellent yields. After reaction, the polymers can be recycled and then reused for the next reaction process.

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.
Synthesis of beta-chloro-alpha-aminophosphonate derivatives via the regioselective ring opening of unactivated aziridine-2-phosphonates
Polat-Cakir, Sidika; BEKSULTANOVA, Nurzhan; Doğan, Özdemir (Informa UK Limited, 2018-12-02)
A series of unactivated racemic and chiral aziridine-2-phosphonates were synthesized by modified Gabriel-Cromwell reaction. Ring opening reaction of the synthesized phosphonates by gaseous HCl provided access to a wide range of biologically interesting novel beta-chloro-alpha-aminophosphonates. All reactions toward each of the above-mentioned products can be conducted regioselectively in high yields.
