A New Strategy for the Synthesis of 4-Propargyl-Substituted 1H-Pyrroles from N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-Enaminones

A new method for the synthesis of 4-propargyl-substituted 1H-pyrroles is described. When treated with sodium hydride in refluxing dichloromethane, N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones, synthesized by the coupling of N-propargylic beta-enaminones with phenylacetylene, afforded 4-propargyl-substituted pyrrole derivatives. This conversion was general for a variety of N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones and displayed broad functional group tolerance. During the reaction, not only cyclization of linear precursors to pyrrole ring takes place, but also propargyl group is introduced to pyrrole core in one-pot. The enrichment of pyrrole compounds with a propargyl unit might exhibit potential for the synthesis of heterocyclic molecules of pharmacological interest.


One-pot synthesis of 2-ferrocenyl-substituted pyridines
KARADENİZ, EDA; Zora, Metin (2016-11-02)
A facile, one-pot method for the synthesis of 2-ferrocenylpyridines is described. When reacted with propargylamine, alpha,beta-alkynic ketones produced N-propargylic beta-enaminones in situ, which, in the presence of copper(I) chloride, underwent electrophilic cyclization to afford 2-ferrocenylpyridine derivatives in good to high yields. This cyclization was found to be general for a variety of alpha,beta-alkynic ketones and tolerated the presence of aryl groups with electron-withdrawing and electron-donati...
A new strategy for the synthesis of pyridines from N-propargylic beta-enaminothiones
Kelgokmen, Yilmaz; Zora, Metin (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2019-03-07)
A new method for the synthesis of 2,4,5-trisubstituted pyridines from N-propargylic beta-enaminothiones is reported. beta-Enaminothiones were prepared by thionation of the corresponding beta-enaminones with Lawesson's reagent. When treated with diisopropylamine in DMF at room temperature, N-propargylic beta-enaminothiones yielded 2,4,5-trisubstituted pyridines in moderate to high yields, along with small amounts of 2-methylene-2,3-dihydro-1,4-thiazepines. The reaction was found to be general for a broad ran...
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 ...
A facile one-pot synthesis of 2-(prop-2-yn-1-ylidene)-2,3-dihydro-1,4-thiazepines
Yılmaz, Elif Serel; Zora, Metin (Informa UK Limited, 2020-11-01)
An unprecedented method for the synthesis of 2-(prop-2-yn-1-ylidene)-2,3-dihydro-1,4-thiazepines from N-(2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones is reported. Upon treatment with Lawesson's reagent, N-(2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones were thionated to furnish N-(2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminothiones, which immediately underwent 7-exo-dig cyclization to generate 2-(prop-2-yn-1-ylidene)-2,3-dihydro-1,4-thiazepines in one-pot. A general trend was observed for various N-(2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones and cyclization...
A novel one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted 1,2,4-oxadiazoles
Zora, Metin; Kelgokmen, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-01)
One-pot synthesis of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles via the reaction between 3-ferrocenylpropynal and amidoximes is described. 3-Ferrocenylpropynal reacts with a variety of amidoximes in the presence of KOH in refluxing dioxane to afford a broad range of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole derivatives. The reaction first produces the corresponding conjugate addition product which, upon cyclization and rearrangement, yields the targeted 1,2,4-oxadiazole. The reaction appears to be general for a diversity of amidox...
