Asymmetric synthesis of beta-hydroxy phoshponates via benzaldehyde lyase catalyzed cross acyloin reactions

Kazancı, Ceren
Synthetically useful asymmetric cross acyloin reactions with functionalized aliphatic aldehyde have a broad range of application. The products of acyloin reactions are α-hydroxy ketone which are the subunits in several compounds and can be found in many biologically important compounds. Phosphonates can be used as an intermediate in the synthesis of potentially significant peptide analogues, catalytic antibodies, and phosphonic acid-based antibiotics which are also acknowledged as biologically important compounds. On the other hand, lyases are an important class of enzymes that achieve several important reactions including C-C bond formations. In this study asymmetric synthesis of novel β-hydroxy phosphonates with cross acyloin reactions was achieved via benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) catalyst. By making a contribution to β-hydroxy phosphonate synthesis methods, this application can also be a preference to chemoenzymatic methods for the synthesis of β-hydroxy phosphonates. In this study, first of all diethyl 2,2-diethoxyethylphosphate was synthesized by Michaelis-Arbuzov reaction of triethylphosphite and bromoacetaldehyde diethylacetal. Then by hydrolyzing phoshorylated diethylacetal, phosphonoacetaldehyde which was used as aliphatic substrate in chemoenzymatic reaction was synthesized. Secondly, benzaldehyde lyase was produced by using recombinant E.coli. Finally, by using ThDP dependent benzaldehyde lyase in DMSO solvent, C-C bond formation was achieved between benzaldehyde derivatives and aliphatic phosphonoacetaldehyde and asymmetric novel β-hydroxy phosphonates was synthesized. As a result, high enantiomeric excesses up to 98% ee were obtained. These results made a significant contribution to both the hydroxy phosphonates synthesis methods and the aliphatic substrate range of benzaldehyde lyase catalyzed reactions.

Design of new chiral ligands for asymmetric synthesis is important. The ligand should be economical and efficient in enantioselective transformations. For the synthesis of some natural products and biologically active compounds, optically active amines are used as important intermediates. For this reason, it is significant to develop new catalyst system which can produce optically active amines in an economical and efficient way. Our group developed PFAM ligands and used successfully for the enantioselectiv...

P-doping of conjugated polymers requires electron transfer from the conjugated polymer to the p-dopant. This implies that the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of the conjugated polymer has to be higher than the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of the p-dopant. Although commonly used p-dopants such as 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (F4TCNQ) have a low LUMO of -5.24 eV, most conjugated polymers used in high-performance field-effect transistors are donor- acceptor-type ...

Chiral sulfoxides are used in asymmetric synthesis and are present in various biologically active compounds. Asymmetric synthesis of the sulfoxides has been performed by chiral metal complexes and non-metals containing peroxide and oxide moieties. In this study, a new metal free method has been developed to oxidize thioanisole into methyl phenyl sulfoxide with easily accessible chiral compounds carrying N-Cl bond. For this purpose, chiral amine and amide bearing reagents were synthesized and chlorinated by ...

In this study, a dynamic chiral metamaterial (MTM) structure leading to an asymmetric electromagnetic (EM) wave transmission for linear polarization is presented. The structure is composed of square-shaped resonator with gaps on both sides of a dielectric substrate with a certain degree of rotation. The dynamic structure is adjustable via various parameters to fit any desired frequency ranges. Theoretical and experimental analysis of the proposed structure are conducted and given in detail. The suggested mo...
Asymmetric aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate mediated by a cinchona-based bifunctional urea catalyst
Okumus, Seda; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-30)
The first asymmetric synthesis of ethyl 4-aryl-3-azido-2-hydroxy-2-methyl-4-oxobutanoates via a cinchona organocatalyst induced aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate has been developed. The coupling reaction under optimized conditions was carried out to furnish tetrafunctionalized synthons with enantioselectivities of up to 91:9 and enriched diastereoselectivities of up to 95:5 (syn:anti).
