Synthesis of Iodo-substituted spiro-fused pyridine derivatives

Teke, Ecem
Spiro cyclic molecules have gained significance because of their biological activities and electronic properties. Spiro frameworks are present in importance natural products and optoelectronic materials. Moreover, due to steric strain, the presence of a spiro carbon atom induces easy rearrangements that can lead to different cyclic products. Although there are some methods to synthesize spiro compounds, the synthesis of iodo-substituted spiro-fused pyridines have not been studied. Accordingly, in this thesis, a new method for the synthesis of iodo-substituted spiro-fused pyridines have been developed via electrophilic cyclizations. After preparation of 5-alkynyl-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)pyridines, these derivatives were subjected to electrophilic cyclization in the presence of moleculer iodine and NaHCO3, which afforded iodo-substituted spiro-fused pyridines. The reaction conditions have been optimized and the limitations, scope and mechanism of these cyclizations have been studied.


Synthesis of pyrroloquinoxalino-fused benzoxazepines and ester-containing iodopyridines
Yazıcı, Nuray Esra; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Heterocyclic fused compounds have gained considerable attention for pharmaceutical applications since they show remarkable biological activities such as antitumor and/or anticancer activities. In particular, the synthesis of seven-membered ring embedded molecules is a challenging issue among organic chemists. Therefore, we have aimed to develop one-pot reaction for the synthesis of seven-membered-fused heterocyclic compounds. We have developed a new methodology for the synthesis of pyrrolo[2',1':3,4]quinoxa...
Design and synthesis of benzene-fused heterocycles: aminopyridazinones, chromenopyridinones and benzopyrazoloxazepines /
Keskin, Selbi; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2015)
The interest in the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds has increased day by day due to their biological activities. This study focuses on the synthesis of different benzene-fused heterocycles. In the first part, we synthesized novel class of compounds, 4-aminophthalazin-1(2H)-ones starting from methyl 2-(2-methoxy-2-oxoethyl)-benzoate. Methylene group in this starting material was oxidized to the corresponding ketoester. Reaction of ketoesters with hydrazine derivatives provided the hydrazone derivatives. ...

İbiş, Özge; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2017)
Heterocyclic compounds are important since they are present in life naturally or synthetically. Among heterocyclic compounds, seven-membered 1,4-oxazepines are giving more attention than ever due to their wide range of biological and medicinal activities. There are many studies about their synthesis and new ones continue to appear. In this study, synthesis of halogen-substituted 1,4-oxazepine derivatives was investigated, which may have potential for biological studies. For this purpose, α,β-alkynic ketone ...
Synthesis, structural and magnetic characterization of soft magnetic nanocrystalline ternary FeNiCo particles
Toparlı, Çiğdem; Gürmen, Sebahattin (2017-02-01)
The present study focuses on the synthesis, microstructural and magnetic properties of ternary FeNiCo nanoparticles. Nanocrystalline ternary FeNiCo particles were synthesized via hydrogen reduction assisted ultrasonic spray pyrolysis method in single step. The effect of precursor concentration on the morphology and the size of particles was investigated. The syntheses were performed at 800 degrees C. Structure, morphology and magnetic properties of the as-prepared products were characterized through X-ray d...
Novel Fluorescent Azacyanine Compounds: Improved Synthesis and Optical Properties
Doğan, Kübra; Forough, M; Persil Çetinkol, Özgül (2020-09-01)
Benzothiazoles are known to possess a number of biological activities and therefore are considered to be an important scaffold in the design and synthesis of pharmacophores. In this study, an improved synthesis method for novel fluorescent benzothiazole-based cyclic azacyanine (CAC) dyes bearing different electron-donating/withdrawing groups on their scaffold is presented. The improved method enabled us to increase the synthesis yield for the previously reported CACs. More importantly, it allowed us to synt...
