The effect of donor ligands on the chromium carbonyl photocatalysed hydrosilylation of 1,3-butadiene, 2-methyl-1,3-butadiene, 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadiene, trans-1,3-pentadiene with triethylsilane was studied. Photocatalytic hydrosilylation of dienes conducted in the presence of Cr(CO)(5)L (L = P(CH3)(3) or P(OCH3)(3)) yields the cis-1,4-adducts, 1-triethylsilyl-2-butene derivatives, as the main products; these have been isolated by distillation or preparative GC and fully characterised by NMR spectroscopy. As with the photocatalytic hydrosilylation of dienes in the presence of Cr(CO)(6), we propose a mechanism which involves the initial conversion of Cr(CO)(5)L into fac-Cr(CO)(3)L(eta(4)-1,3-diene) followed by a further photolytic CO substitution by triethylsilane, forming a Cr(CO)(2)(H)(SiEt3)L(eta(4)-1,3-diene)intermediate. The addition of hydride to diene occurs reversibly to form an eta(3)-enyl ligand prior to the irreversible silyl transfer to the organic moiety. The 1,4-hydrosilylation adduct is then replaced by new substrates to complete the catalytic cycle. Cr(CO)SL complexes form active species which are much more stable than the one generated from CI(CO), in the absence of any donor ligands. Thus, introduction of an equimolar amount of donor ligand (trimethylphosphine or trimethylphosphite) increases the Life of the catalyst. This leads to the achievement of larger turn-over numbers (80 or 70) compared with the value of 30 for just Cr(CO)(6). Cr(CO)(5)L (L = P(C6H5)(3), P(C6H11)(3) or C5H5N) proved inactive in the attempted photocatalytic hydrosilylation of dienes.


Synthesis of ferrocenyl quinolines
Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2008-06-01)
A convenient one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted quinolines via a molecular iodine-catalyzed reaction of ferrocenylimines with enolizable aldehydes is reported. First, nucleophilic addition of the in situ generated enol to ferrocenylimine produces beta-anilinopropionaldehyde, which then undergoes intramolecular Friedel-Crafts reaction to give dihydroquinoline derivative. Finally, subsequent dehydration and aerobic oxidation affords ferrocenyl quinolines.
Chemoenzymatic synthesis of alpha(1)- and alpha-acetoxylated cyclic ketones
Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, M (Elsevier BV, 2004-06-07)
alpha,beta-Unsaturated and saturated cyclic ketones were selectively oxidized at the alpha'- and alpha-positions using Mn(OAc)(3) and Pb(OAc)(4), respectively, resulting in high chemical yields. The resultant racemic alpha'- and alpha-acetoxylated substrates were resolved into corresponding enantiomerically enriched alpha'- and alpha-hydroxylated and acetoxylated compounds with 96-98% ee via PLE hydrolysis. The absolute configurations of alpha'-acetoxy-alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclic ketones were determined b...
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...
Mechanistic Insights into the Reaction of N-Propargylated Pyrrole- and Indole-Carbaldehyde with Ammonia, Alkyl Amines, and Branched Amines: A Synthetic and Theoretical Investigation
Sari, Ozlem; Seybek, Ali Fatih; Kaya, Serap; Menges, Nurettin; ERDEM, SAFİYE; BALCI, METİN (Wiley, 2019-09-01)
The reaction of pyrrole- and indole-carbaldehydes having a propargyl group attached to the nitrogen atom with various amines was studied. The reaction with ammonia formed pyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrazine and pyrazino[1,2-a]indole while the reaction with alkylamines such as methyl, ethyl, hexyl, and benzylamines formed the corresponding pyrazinone derivatives. Unexpectedly, the reaction with allylamine and propargylamine formed pyrazine derivatives in which the allyl and propargyl groups were removed from the molecule...
A bis-Lewis basic 2-aminoDMAP/prolinamide organocatalyst for application to the enantioselective synthesis of Warfarin and derivatives
IŞIK, Murat; Akkoca, H. Ufuk; Akhmedov, I. Mecidoglu; Tanyeli, Cihangir (Elsevier BV, 2016-06-01)
A new chiral sec-amine/amidine-base hybrid catalyst, 2-aminoDMAP/prolinamide, is reported, which is able to catalyze conjugate addition of 4-hydroxycoumarin and various benzylideneacetones, a reaction that directly gives anticoagulant Warfarin and its analogues, with good yields (70-87%) and enantioselectivities (58-72%).
