Oligomeric ethylene glycols as sorting tags for parallel and combinatorial mixture synthesis

Sorting tags for chromatography allow mixtures of substrates to be carried through parallel chemical processes and then separated. The first sorting tags were fluorocarbons. An enabling characteristic of fluorous sorting tags is the predictable incremental increase in retention time with increasing fluorocarbon chain length. Here we describe a general approach to sorting tags and report our discovery of a second class of chromatographic tags. The new tags are oligomeric ethylene glycol (OEG) derivatives.


Distyryl-boradiazaindacenes: facile synthesis of novel near IR emitting fluorophores
Dost, Zeynep; Atilgan, Serdar; Akkaya, Engin U. (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-04)
Boradiazaindacenes with methyl substituents at 3 and 5 positions were for the first time shown to undergo efficient double condensation reactions with an aromatic aldehyde yielding a series of extended conjugation dyes. These new fluorophores have absorption maxima in the range of 650-660 nm. The dyes reported here have large quantum yields with 20 nm Stokes' shifted emission peaks. The straightforward synthesis of such red shifted BODIPY derivatives is important in relation to the synthesis of novel and us...
Asymmetric aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate mediated by a cinchona-based bifunctional urea catalyst
Okumus, Seda; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-30)
The first asymmetric synthesis of ethyl 4-aryl-3-azido-2-hydroxy-2-methyl-4-oxobutanoates via a cinchona organocatalyst induced aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate has been developed. The coupling reaction under optimized conditions was carried out to furnish tetrafunctionalized synthons with enantioselectivities of up to 91:9 and enriched diastereoselectivities of up to 95:5 (syn:anti).
Chemosensing in deep red: A squaraine-based fluorescent chemosensor for pH.
Isgor, YG; Akkaya, EU (Elsevier BV, 1997-10-20)
We have synthesized and spectrally characterized a squaraine-based fluorescent chemosensor for pH. This chemosensor unlike many others, works in 100 % aqueous solutions, signalling the pH change from 10 to 7 by a 11-fold increase in the emission intensity at 651 nm, when excited at the isosbestic point (614 nm). The average pK(a) for the ionizable groups is found to be 8.8. The chemosensor with its molar extinction coefficient > 200,000 and the quantum yield of 0.2, yield an impressive intrinsic brightness ...
Clean and efficient microwave-solvent-free conversion of homochiral amines, alpha-amino alcohols and alpha-amino acids to their chiral 2-substituted pyrrole derivatives
Aydogan, F; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2005-03-21)
Efficient synthesis of 1,2-disubstituted homochiral pyrroles has been achieved by a two-component coupling of chloroenones and amine compounds on the surface of silica gel without any solvent under microwave irradiation.
Manganese(III) acetate-mediated synthesis of biaryls under microwave irradiation
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Findik, Hamide; SAYGILI, NEZİRE; Subasi, N. Tuna (Elsevier BV, 2010-02-06)
Manganese(Ill) acetate (Mn(OAc)(3))-mediated synthesis of biaryls and heterobiaryls starting from arylboronic acid was developed under microwave irradiation in high yields Microwaves were also used for the synthesis of Mn(OAc)(3) from KMnO4 and acetic acid Additional irradiation of this in situ generated Mn(OAc)3 with arylboronic acids, which in turn furnished the biaryls in high yields In a one pot reaction This IS superior from the point of view of yield, short reaction time, sensitive functional group to...
