Synthesis of tempo containing chiral polymers for kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols.

Yücel, Ece Ayç
Optically pure secondary alcohols are important building blocks for the synthesis of chemicals used in pharmaceutical sciences. Kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols through selective oxidation of one enantiomer to the corresponding ketone is a classical and efficient method to obtain enantiopure alcohols. An oxidative kinetic resolution is achieved by exploiting two enantiomers’ unequal rates of oxidation reaction with a chiral reagent or catalyst. The general approach towards a kinetic resolution via alcohol oxidation utilizes nitroxyl radicals on a chiral environment. The oxidations with these radicals are highly efficient catalytic oxidations due to fast and efficient turnover and the use of inexpensive oxidants. In this study, 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine 1-oxyl (TEMPO) containing chiral polymers were synthesized via ring opening metathesis polymerization. Afterwards, the synthesized polymers were used as catalysts for the oxidative kinetic resolution of 1-phenyl ethanol. Morever, a TEMPO containing polymer was employed as a cathode material in the construction of a organic radical battery.

Aziridines are highly useful compounds as building blocks for the synthesis of important organic compounds. Amino acid synthesis by aziridine ring opening reaction is a good example to the use of aziridines. Although this reaction is studied by many groups, the synthesis of amino phosphonic acids is less explored. In this study, we have carried out the ring opening reaction of aziridinyl phosphonates with a variety of alcohols including the more functional propargylic and allylic alcohols. These reactions p...

Uslu, I.; TUNÇ, TUNCAY; Keskin, Serhat; Ozturk, M. K. (2011-06-01)
Boron doped PVA/Zr-Al acetate nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning using PVA as a precursor. The effect of calcination temperature on morphology and crystal structure was investigated at 250, 500, and 800 degrees C. The study also establishes the effect of boron doping on the morphology of PVA/Zr-Al acetate nanofibers at various calcination temperatures. The measurements showed that the conductivity, pH, viscosity and the surface tension of the hybrid polymer solutions have increased with boron dopin...
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...

An efficient synthesis of racemic and both enantiomeric forms of heteroaryl substituted gamma- and delta-lactone derivatives derived from allyl and homoallyl alcohol backbones has been accomplished via ring closing metathesis reaction. 2-Heteroaryl substituted allyl and homoallyl alcohols have been efficiently resolved through enzymatic method with high ee (97-99%) and known stereochemistry. Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of target lactones were evaluated.
