Asymmetric organocatalytic sulfa-Michael reactions give access to enantiomerically enriched sulfur containing adducts that can be used as valuable chiral building blocks. A variety of chalcone derivatives were allowed to react with methyl thioglycolate under optimized conditions, in the presence of a bifunctional quinine derived sterically encumbered squaramide organocatalyst, giving rise to excellent stereoselectivities, up to 99% ee. The designed catalyst system proved to be efficient even at gram scale and under milder reaction conditions.

Enantioselective Michael Addition of Nitroalkanes to Nitroalkenes Catalyzed by Chiral Bifunctional Quinine-Based Squaramides
KANBEROĞLU, Esra; Tanyeli, Cihangir (2016-01-01)
A family of chiral bifunctional acid-/base-type quinine/squaramide organocatalysts is shown to be highly active promoters of the conjugate addition of 1-nitropropane to various trans--nitroalkenes. The cooperation of the quinine and the sterically encumbered squaramide moieties catalyzed the Michael addition reactions at 0 degrees C by using a catalyst loading of only 2mol% to afford the 1,3-dinitro Michael adducts with excellent enantioselectivity and diastereoselectivity (up to 95%ee and syn/anti isomers ...

Bozdemir, Merve; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2019)
Organocatalytic asymmetric reactions are efficient and environmentally friendly methods to synthesize products with higher enantioselectivities. Asymmetric domino Michael-SN2 reactions are one of the type of organocatalytic reaction frequently used to form carbon-carbon bonds in the synthesis of the derivatives of dihydrofurans, which are intermediates mainly utilized as precessor materials in the pharmaceutical fields. In this thesis, the reaction occuring between acetylacetone and (Z)-(2-bromo-2-nitroviny...
Enantioselective sulfa-michael addition to trans-chalcone derivatives with quinine derived bifunctional organocatalysts
Tözendemir, Deniz; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2020-12-28)
The use of organocatalysts has brought profound advantages in the context of asymmetric synthesis, in terms of ease of use and better compatibility with the environment. More than 20 organocatalysts of four different classes (squaramide, urea, thiourea, and sulfonamide) have been developed and used to catalyze various asymmetric reactions in our research group. In this thesis, asymmetric sulfa-Michael type additions were carried out in the presence of cinchona alkaloid derived squaramide and sulfonamide-typ...
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...
Enantioselective aza-Henry reaction of t-Boc protected imines and nitroalkanes with bifunctional squaramide organocatalysts
Susam, Zeynep Dilşad; Tanyeli, Cihangir (2017-05-07)
An organocatalytic asymmetric aza-Henry reaction of t-Boc protected imines with nitroalkanes has been established by chiral acid-base type bifunctional Cinchona alkaloid/squaramide organocatalysts. The cooperation of a quinine motif as a base and sterically encumbered squaramide (H-bond donor) enabled mostly complete conversion of a range of reactants into the corresponding aza-Henry products at room temperature with good selectivities (up to 91% ee with 10 mol% catalyst loading).
