Development of novel asymmetric catalysts for various transformations and investigation of a rearrangement reaciıon

Yazıcıoğlu, Emre Yusuf
A new class of pyridine and sulfur containing chiral compounds are synthesized. Camphor sulfonyl chloride is chosen as a valuable chiral starting compound. In our synthetic strategy, sulfonylchloride moiety is first reduced to corresponding thiol compound by using triphenylphosphine and then the resultant thiol will be converted to various alkyl, aryl substituted derivatives. The second part of our strategy includes the pyridine ring construction on the carbonyl side of camphor with the formation of β-hydroxymethylene moiety followed by further reaction with various enamines. The resultant chiral ligands are characterized and used as a chiral ligand in asymmetric transfer of hydrogenation. Also novel class of organocatalysts synthesized from C2-symmetrical chiral diamine backbones and halopyridine derivatives are also synthesized and tested for their performance in kinetic resolution of racemic secondary alcohols. Also, a base mediated aromatization reaction is investigated in terms of both scope and mechanism.


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...

A new and short synthesis of 7H-benzo[a]cyclohepten-7-one and some derivatives: Oxidation of 7-bromo-5H-benzo[a]cycloheptene
Dastan, A; Yildiz, YK; Balcı, Metin (Informa UK Limited, 2001-01-01)
Oxidation of 7-bromo-5H-benzo[a]cycloheptene with some oxidation reagents has been studied. Several 2,3- and 4,5-benzotropone derivatives has been obtained. The structures of the products were determined by H-1-, (CNMR)-C-13 data and chemical transformation.
Synthesis of novel chiral N,N-dialkyl substituted 1,4-amino alcohols and applications in asymmetric transformation reactions
Çakır, Esen; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
Amino alcohols are valuable bioactive substances and frequently used as chiral catalyst in various asymmetric transformation reactions. In the synthetic route, the asymmetric synthesis of novel chiral N,N-dialkyl substituted chiral 1,4-amino alcohols are performed starting with meso-anhydride 38. Quinine-mediated desymmetrization of the anhydride with methanol afforded (2S,3R)-cis-monoester 39 with a high enantiomeric excess (up to 98% ee). Chemoselective amidation of hemiester with various N,N-dialkyl subs...
Generation of acyl anion equivalents from acylphosphonates via phosphonate-phosphate rearrangement: A highly practical method for cross-benzoin reaction
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Reis, O; Igdir, AC; Esiringu, I; Eymur, S (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-12-09)
Acylphosphonates are potent acyl anion precursors that generate acyl anion equivalents under the promotion of cyanide anion via phosphonate-phosphate rearrangement. These anions readily react with aldehydes to provide cross-benzoin products. In this way it is possible to synthesize a variety of aromatic-aromatic, aromatic-aliphatic, and aliphatic-aromatic benzoins. Moreover the reaction of benzoylphosphonate with potent electrophile 2,2,2-trifluoroacetophenone provided the corresponding aldehyde-ketone coup...
