2-Substituted epichlorohydrins have been synthesized by starting with 1,2-dichloro acetone and various alkyl and aryl halides via dichlorohydrins followed by cyclization. The reactive 2-substituted epichlorohydrins were subjected to nucleophilic attacking of azide and cyanide ions to afford corresponding beta-azido alcohols and alpha,beta-unsaturated nitriles.


Synthesis of 1,2,3,5- tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives via 5-exo-dig type cyclization and stereoselective functionalisation of ferrocene derivatives
Kayalar, Metin; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2005)
A convenient and new method for the synthesis of 1,2,3,5-tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives starting from 1,3,-dicarbonyl compounds through acid catalyzed cyclization reaction is described. Alkylation of 1,3-dicarbonyl compound with propargyl bromide followed by one step cyclization with the introduction of primary amines in the presence of catalytic amount of triflouroacetic acid (TFA) affords the corresponding pyrrole derivatives in high yields. The investigations on the studies of developing a new meth...

The α-oxidation of aryl alkyl ketones using manganese(III) acetate in the presence of various carboxylic acids and (1S)-(+)-10-camphorsulfonic acid provided a convenient synthesis of α-acyloxy, α-(10-camphorsulfonyloxy), and α-hydroxy derivatives in good yield.
Oxidation of Primary Alcohols to Aldehydes with N-Halamine-Containing Polymers
Akdağ, Akın; Öztürk, Perihan (Georg Thieme Verlag KG, 2013-11-12)
Polymeric N-halamines have been previously employed for organic reactions such as sulfide oxidation. In the present study, we employed polymeric N-halamines to oxidize primary alcohols selectively to the corresponding aldehydes in excellent yields. After reaction, the polymers can be recycled and then reused for the next reaction process.
Synthesis of chiral lactones via the baeyer villiger oxidation of cyclic aromatic acetoxy ketones novel annulation reactions of 2-propynyl-1,3-dicarbonyl compounds to form pyrroles addition of acyl phosphonates to diethyl cyanophosphonate (depc)
Aybey, Asuman; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Chiral Baeyer-Villiger (BV) oxidation of cyclic ketones allows rapid access to asymmetric lactones as valuable intermediates in organic chemistry and frequently encountered precursors in enantioselective synthesis. In the first part, BV oxidation of functionalized ketones, especially cyclic -hydroxy and acetoxy ketones is described which could be a straightforward route to the -hydroxy lactones and -hydroxyalkanoic acid derivatives. The -acetoxylation of indanone, tetralone and chromanone derivatives by usi...
Synthesis of various camphor-based chiral pyridine derivatives
Işık, Murat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Chiral aromatic nitrogen heterocycles are finding many applications in asymmetric organic synthesis, particularly as ligands in the preparation of chiral metal complexes. Since camphor-based chiral auxiliaries are known to be especially effective, a number of pyridines fused to the camphor skeleton have been reported. It is well known that nicotinic acid and its derivatives exhibiting qualitatively the biological activity of nicotinamide, which acts as an electron acceptor in many biological redox reactions...
