Facile synthesis of (4-nitrophenyl)thio-substituted 1- pyrrolines

Korkmaz, Esra
The importance of heterocyclic compounds is enormous in synthetic organic chemistry due to their presence in bioactive molecules. Five-membered 1-pyrrolines are one of the most important classes of them. They have recently drawn great attention from synthetic chemists since they have a prominent role for the synthesis of a great number of pharmaceutical molecules. Therefore, there is intense research on their synthesis. In this project, we concentrated on the synthesis of (4-nitrophenyl)thio-substituted 1- pyrrolines. We have synthesized a variety of (4-nitrophenyl)thio-substituted 1- pyrroline derivatives with one-pot two-steps reactions by using two different bases. Firstly, the synthesis of α,β-alkynic ketone derivatives was achieved from aryl chlorides and terminal alkynes by using Pd-catalyzed coupling reaction. Secondly, 21 diverse derivatives of N-propargylic β-enaminones were synthesized with conjugate addition of propargylamine to α,β-alkynic ketones. In the last step of this project, we investigated the addition of 4-nitrobenzenesulfenyl chloride to N-propargylic β-enaminones and the cyclization of resulting intermediate compound. After we treated N-propargylic β-enaminones with 4-nitrobenzenesulfenyl chloride, NaH or Cs2CO3 was added into reaction medium for the cyclization of intermediate product in ACN at reflux condition. Each derivative was synthesized by using both bases and their yields were compared. Consequently, one-pot two-steps reactions were performed and 21 novel derivatives of (4-nitrophenyl)thio-substituted 1-pyrrolines were obtained in good yields.


Synthesis of new pyrrole derivatives from npropargylic β-enaminones
Kanova, Nilay; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2020)
Heterocyclic compounds are a momentous area of synthetic organic chemistry because of their existence in bioactive molecules. Pyrroles, which are one of the most important classes of heterocyclic compounds, have great importance in pharmaceutical chemistry due to their biological activities. Having these characteristics makes them drawn attention of most chemists to develop new methodologies for the synthesis of pyrroles. Recently, the cyclization of Npropargylic β-enaminones has been used for the synthesis...

Some phenolic biphenyl compounds have been synthesised via the annulation reactions of 4-methoxy-2- pyrone with various active methyl compounds.
Development of new methods for the synthesis of pyrazoles, 4-iodopyrazoles, isoxazoles and 1,2,4-oxadiazoles
Kıvrak, Arif; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2011)
Synthesis of five-membered heteroaromatic compounds such as pyrazoles, isoxazoles and 1,2,4-oxadiazoles are important for pharmaceutical industry and material science due to their applications. Although there are many methods to prepare such compounds, new variants continue to appear since they exhibit a wide range of biological and medicinal activities. In this thesis, new methods were developed for the synthesis of 4-iodopyrazoles, pyrazoles, isoxazoles, 1,2,4-oxadiazoles and/or 1,2,4-oxadiazepines. In th...
Dimethyl ether, diethyl ether & ethylene from alcohols over tungstophosphoric acid based mesoporous catalysts
Ciftci, Aysegul; VARIŞLI, DİLEK; Tokay, Kenan Cem; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Doğu, Timur (2012-10-01)
Tungstophosphoric acid (TPA) incorporated silicate structured new mesoporous catalysts were synthesized following one-pot hydrothermal and impregnation procedures. Surface area of TPA@MCM-41, which was prepared by impregnating TPA into MCM-41, was two orders of magnitude higher than the surface area of pure TPA and this catalyst showed very high activity in dehydration reactions of both ethanol and methanol. Ethanol fractional conversion values reaching to 1.0 was obtained at 300 degrees C at a space time o...
Tribenzoazaacepentalenide anion: discovery of an unusually planar aromatic compound
Akgül , Cevahir Ceren; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Department of Chemistry (2020-9)
With the discovery of fullerenes, the interest in synthesis of non-planar aromatic compounds increased significantly and these types of materials became important targets among the synthetic chemistry community. The dihydroacepentalenediide, the dianion of acepentalene was one of the widely sought targets which was synthesized in 1986 starting from triquinacene. Triquinacene itself also attracted significant attention due being potential precursor of dodecahedrane and possible homoaromaticity it might posse...
