Reactions of acyl phosphonates with organoaluminum reagents and hetero diels-alder reactions with unactivated dienes

Hossain, Md. Shakhawoat
α-Hydroxy phosphonates medicinally important compounds due to broad spectrum of biological activities. Addition reaction of commercially available trialkylaluminum reagents (trimethylaluminum and triethylaluminum) to benzoyl and alkanoyl phosphonates were investigated. Nucleophilic Me3Al solely gave tertiary α-hydroxy phosphonates in good yields. On the other hand, when Et3Al addition was carried out at 0 °C hydride addition product rather than ethyl addition was isolated in good yields. When the temperature was lowered to -100 °C , Et3Al addition was achieved but in low yields. We have also investigated the addition reactions of trialkynylaluminum reagents, mainly triethynyl, tris-propynyl and tris-phenylethynyl, to benzoyl and akanoyl phosphonates to synthesize tertiary α-hydroxy propargylic phosphonates. Addition of triethynylaluminium gave the propargylic compounds in low to moderate yields (15-67%). Addition of tris-propynyl and tris-phenylethynyl reagents formed the expected products in moderate to good yields (30-75%). In all cases, electronic features of the aromatic unit affected the chemical yield. Presence of an electron-withdrawing group on the phenyl ring provided the product in better chemical yield. When benzoyl and alkanoyl phosphonates were compared in terms of yields, first one formed the product in better yields at a shorter reaction times. vi Hetero Diels-Alder (HDA) reaction is an important reaction for the construction of the pyranosyl unit of many biologically active compounds. HDA reactions of acyl phosphonates with 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadine were investigated to prepare glycosyl type phosphonates. To activate the HDA reaction, several Lewis acids were tested. AlCl3 was found to be the most effective catalyst by forming glycosyl phosphonates in acceptable to good yields (40-79%) depending on the acyl phosphonates.

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 of indole fused heterocyclic compounds
Kaptı, Tolga; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds show wide range of biological activities so their syntheses have always been attractive area in organic chemistry. Indole derivatives, which are one of the important example of these biological active compound, are precursors to many pharmaceuticals. The aim of this research is to develop new synthetic methodologies leading to the synthesis of new derivatives of pyrimidoindole and quinoline, which have been found to show important biological activities. In this stu...
Synthesis of Iodo-substituted spiro-fused pyridine derivatives
Teke, Ecem; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2014)
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...
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...
Metal catalyzed asymmetric synthesis of thienyl-substituted pyrrolidines by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of azomethine ylides
Bulut, Merve; Doğan, Özdemir; Department of Chemistry (2019)
Pyrrolidines are structurally and biologically important heterocyclic compounds. One of the efficient methods for the synthesis of these compounds is 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (1,3-DC) reaction of azomethine ylides with electron deficient dipolarophiles. Asymmetric synthesis of these compounds has been studied by many groups by using 1,3-DC reactions with chiral transition metal catalysts. In all these studies aryl-substituted pyrrolidines were synthesized mainly. In this thesis, heteroaryl-substituted pyrr...
