Synthesis of 6-halogen-substituted 2-methylene-2,3dihydro-1,4-oxazepine derivatives

İbiş, Özge
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 derivatives were prepared by the reaction of aryloyl chlorides with terminal alkynes in the presence of a Pd catalyst. After that, by conjugate addition reaction between α,β-alkynic ketones and propargylamine, 23 N-propargylic β-enaminone derivatives were synthesized. Secondly, α-halogen substitution reactions of N-propargylic β-enaminone derivatives were studied with NCS and Selectfluor® for chlorine and fluorine substitution, respectively. By these reactions, 23 novel α-chloro-substituted and 5 novel α-fluoro-substituted N-propargylic β-enaminone derivatives were synthesized in good yields. In the final stage of this study, electrophilic cyclizations of halogen-substituted N-propargylic β-enaminones were investigated. When treated with zinc chloride by refluxing chloroform, they afforded 6-halo-substituted 1,4-oxazepines in good yields. In conclusion, 23 novel chloro-substituted and 5 novel fluoro-substituted 1,4-oxazepine derivatives were synthesized.

Dikmen, Ezel; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2014)
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 hete...

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...
Synthesis of highly substituted alkynylpyridines and development of new methodologies for the synthesis of 1,4-oxazepines, 1,4-thiazepines and 5-methylpyridines /
Kelgökmen, Yılmaz; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2018)
Convenient syntheses of pyridines, 1,4-oxazepines and 1,4-thiazepines have become an important research area among organic chemists since they constitute scaffolds of many medicinal substances. Recently, N-propargylic β-enaminones have been widely used for the facile synthesis of potent biologically active heterocycles. Many research groups have focused on the proper synthesis of various heterocycles by using N-propargylic β-enaminones. One of the such recent reports using these precursors is the formation ...
