One-Pot Synthesis of Spiro-2H-pyrroles fromN-Propargylic beta-Enaminones

Zora, Metin
A simple and general one-pot method for the synthesis of spiro-2 H -pyrroles has been developed. Initially, cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality were synthesized by conjugate addition of 1-ethynylcyclohexylamine to ,-alkynic ketones, followed by palladium-catalyzed coupling of the resulting N -propargylic -enaminones with aryl iodides. When subjected to basic conditions, the cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality underwent tandem nucleophilic cyclization and benzylic C-H oxidation to furnish 3,4-diaryloyl-1-azaspiro[4.5]deca-1,3-diene derivatives in good yields.


One-pot synthesis of chloroalcohols and their lipase mediated kinetic resolution - ferrocenyl aziridinylmethanols as chiral ligands in enantioselective conjugate diethylzinc addition to enones
İşleyen, Alper; Doğan, Özdemir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
An unexpected tricyclic ether formation instead of acetate addition to the double bond of a norbornene derivative aroused our interest to explore the mechanism of this reaction. Mechanistic studies showed that methylene diacetate (MDA) was formed in the stock solution (NBu4OAc + dichloromethane) and decomposed to formaldehyde under Lewis or Brønsted acid conditions. Formaldehyde and olefin condensation (Prins reaction) clearly explains the formation of the unexpected product. Same methodology was then succe...
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...
Synthesis of 3-[(4-Nitrophenyl)thio]-Substituted 4-Methylene-1-pyrrolines from N-Propargylic beta-Enaminones
Korkmaz, Esra; Zora, Metin (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2020-04-03)
A facile and efficient method for the synthesis of 3-[(4-nitrophenyl)thio]-substituted 4-methylene-1-pyrrolines is described. When treated with 4-nitrobenzenesulfenyl chloride in refluxing acetonitrile, N-propargylic beta-enaminones produced alpha-sulfenylated N-propargylic beta-enaminones, which, in the presence of sodium hydride or cesium carbonate, underwent nucleophilic cyclization to afford 4-methylene-3-[(4-nitrophenyl)thio]-1-pyrrolines in good to high yields. It was shown for the first time that on ...
A facile synthesis of various butenolides
Tanyeli, Cihangir (Informa UK Limited, 2000-01-01)
The synthesis of alpha'-acyloxy-alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclic ketones from the corresponding alpha,beta-unsaturated cyclic ketones by using manganese (III) acetate in combination with 2-chloropropionic acid followed by subsequent Arbuzov and intramolecular Horner-Emmons cyclization reactions provided a convenient synthetic pathway to various butenolides 4a-d.
A new approach for the synthesis of spiro and gem-dimethyl-substituted 1,4-oxazepines from N-propargylic beta-enaminones
Karadeniz, Eda; Kelgökmen, Yılmaz; Zora, Metin (Wiley, 2020-11-01)
An efficient and general method for the synthesis of spiro-1,4-oxazepines and 3,3-dimethyl-1,4-oxazepines is reported. When treated with ZnI2 and AgSbF6 in refluxing DCE, cyclohexane-embedded N-propargylic beta-enaminones underwent 7-exo-dig cyclization to afford spiro-1,4-oxazepines, specifically 12-methylene-11-oxa-7-azaspiro[5.6]dodeca-7,9-dienes, in good to high yields. Accordingly, N-(1,1-dimethyl)propargylic beta-enaminones produced 3,3-dimethyl-1,4-oxazepines. Cyclization was found to be general for ...
