Nucleophilic and electrophilic cyclization reactions of n-alkyne substituted pyrrole derivatives

Yenice, Işıl
Pyrrolopyrazinone, triazinone and oxazinone derivatives were synthesized via practical methodologies. In the study, N-alkyne substituted pyrrole esters were synthesized and isolated as key compounds via copper catalyzed cross-coupling reaction. Then, key compounds underwent nucleophilic cyclization reaction with hydrazine monohydrate to yield pyrrolopyrazinone and/or pyrrolotriazinone derivatives according to electronic properties of group attached to alkyne unit. Additional study was the synthesis of pyrrolooxazinone derivatives. Key compounds were treated with iodine to achieve electrophilic cyclization reactions and iodine substituted 6-endo-dig cyclization products were obtained.


Base-promoted synthesis of new diazepine derivatives via alkyne cyclization
Baskın, Dılgeş; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2016)
A new methodology was developed for the synthesis of dipyrromethane and diazepine derivatives. In the first section of this thesis, synthesis of various dipyrromethanes from aromatic aldehydes was carried out. Dipyrromethanes were used as starting materials for the next step. In the second part of the study, introduction of a propargyl group to nitrogen atom to one of pyrrole units of dipyrromethane gave the expected mono-propargylated compounds which were the key compounds for further cyclization reactions...
Enantioselective synthesis of 2,3-dihydrofurans using a bifunctional quinine/squaramide organocatalyst
Susam, Zeynep Dilşad; Gundogdu, Gulsum; Tanyeli, Cihangir (2021-11-01)
Asymmetric organocatalytic domino type Michael-S(N)2 reactions give access to enantiomerically enriched dihydrofuran derivatives that can be used as valuable chiral building blocks. A variety of alpha-bromonitroalkenes and 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds were allowed to react under optimized conditions, in the presence of a bifunctional quinine-derived sterically encumbered squaramide (H-bond donor) organocatalyst. The conditions developed in this article have great advantages over the methods known in the literat...
Regioselective Synthesis of Benzo[h][1,6]- naphthyridines and Chromenopyrazinones through Alkyne Cyclization
Hoplamaz, Emre; KESKİN, SELBİ; Balcı, Metin (Wiley, 2017-03-17)
A regioselective approach to the synthesis of benzo[h][1,6]-naphthyridine and chromenopyrazinone derivatives was developed. The synthetic route to benzo[h][1,6]naphthyridines involves the N-propargylation of aromatic aminobenzaldehydes, followed by reaction with propargylamine in the presence of DBU (1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0] undec-7ene). For the synthesis of chromenopyrazine and chromeno-pyrazinone derivatives, the acetonitrile group was introduced to salicylaldehyde derivatives, and a DBU-promoted cyclizati...
Gold catalyzed synthesis of pyrrole and indole fused heterocycles via alkyne cyclization
Aslan Taşkaya, Sultan; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2015)
New methodologies were developed for the synthesis of pyrrolo- and indolo-oxazin1-one derivatives. In the first section of this thesis, various N-propargyl pyrrole and indole esters were efficiently converted into corresponding carboxylic acids which then underwent intramolecular cyclization reaction with AuCl3 to give 6-exo-dig cyclization products. In the second part of the study, 6-exo-dig pyrrolo- and indolo- oxazinone derivatives were treated with TFA in order to achieve double bond isomerization. Some...
Intermolecular heterocyclization of alkynones with 2-mercaptoacetaldehyde under metal-free conditions: synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted thiophenes
Vatansever, Erol Can; Kilic, Kubra; Ozer, Merve Sinem; KOZA, GANİ; Menges, Nurettin; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2015-09-30)
A concise and regioselective approach for the synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted thiophene derivatives has been developed. The synthetic strategy relies on the reaction of an in situ generated 2-mercaptoacetaldehyde with various alkynones. Furthermore, we calculated the energy gap between the HOMO and the LUMO orbitals of all compounds and observed that the introduction of a strong electron-withdrawing group decreased the HOMO-LUMO energy gap.
