Synthesis of 2-iodomethylene-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepine derivatives

Dikmen, Ezel
Seven-membered heterocyclic compounds containing two heteroatoms are at least as important as one heteroatom-containing heterocycles in many applications. Oxazepine derivatives are one of such seven-membered heterocyclic compounds. Therefore, the construction of oxazepine derivatives has attracted considerable attention among researchers because of providing useful treatments for many diseases with their pharmaceutical compositions. Accordingly, our research group has aimed to synthesize seven-membered heterocyclic compounds. In this manner, we have developed a new methodology for the synthesis of iodo-substituted 1,4-oxazepine derivatives. First of all, the synthesis of alkynyl ketones was achieved and then the preparation of N-propargylic β-enaminone derivatives was performed from the reaction of alkynyl ketones and propargyl amine. The reaction of N-propargylic β-enaminones via zinc chloride and iodine has afforded iodo-substituted 1,4- oxazepine molecules. For this study, ZnCl2 was used as a Lewis acid catalyst in order to initiate electrophilic cyclization.

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 ...

Vatansever, Erol Can; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Synthesis of thiophene containing compounds are of particular interest in synthetic organic chemistry. Besides the importance for synthetic organic chemistry, thiophene derivatives are used in applied research such as drug synthesis and study of functional materials. In this thesis, a new methodology for developing of 2,3-disubstituted thiophenes was developed. This methodology utilizes readily available compounds in a two-step synthesis to provide a facile access to the 2,3-disubstituted thiophenes. In the...

Köse, Elif; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Chiral cyclic polyoxo-ketones are important structural units in many natural products, biologically active compouds, such as prostaglandins, didemnenones, sarkomycin, punaglandin, clavulone, etc. In this work, a chemoenzymatic synthesis of both enantiomers of the a̕-acetoxy-a-methyl and ?-hydroxy-a-methyl cyclic enones starting from a-methyl-β-methoxy cyclic enone is described. Manganese (III) acetate-mediated acetoxylation followed by the enzyme-mediated hydrolysis of a̕-acetoxy enone provides acetoxy enon...
The Synthesis of 6- and 7- membered heterocyclic ring systems fused to pyridine ring
Dinçoflaz, Yasemin; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
The synthesis of the nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds is one of the leading research areas throughout the organic chemistry due to their significant activities in biological systems. Among the various biologically active molecules, pyridine-fused ring systems are of prime importance on the grounds of their proven clinical roles. The coupling reactions with 6-membered heterocyclic compounds and diazepines gave rise to new pharmalogical compounds in recent years. Therefore, our object was the synthe...
Synthesis of new pyrrole derivatives from npropargylic β-enaminones
Kanova, Nilay; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2020)
Heterocyclic compounds are a momentous area of synthetic organic chemistry because of their existence in bioactive molecules. Pyrroles, which are one of the most important classes of heterocyclic compounds, have great importance in pharmaceutical chemistry due to their biological activities. Having these characteristics makes them drawn attention of most chemists to develop new methodologies for the synthesis of pyrroles. Recently, the cyclization of Npropargylic β-enaminones has been used for the synthesis...
