Synthesis of new pyrrole derivatives from npropargylic β-enaminones

Kanova, Nilay
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 of heterocyclic compounds, especially pyrroles. In this study, we have investigated the synthesis of new 2-acetylpyrrole derivatives which may have potential biological activities. Various pyrrole derivatives have been synthesized with two unprecedented way which are synthesis method from 1,4- oxazepines and one-pot two-step synthesis method from N-propargylic βenaminones. Firstly, α,β-alkynic ketone derivatives have been synthesized via Sonogashira coupling reaction between benzoyl chlorides and terminal alkynes. After synthesizing α,β-alkynic ketone derivatives, N-propargylic β-enaminone derivatives vi have been synthesized by the conjugate addition between propargylamine and the corresponding α,β-alkynic ketones. Secondly, the cyclization of N-propargylic β-enaminones have been carried out for the synthesis of 2-methylene-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepines. A number of 2- methylene-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepine derivatives have been synthesized in the presence of ZnCl2. Lastly, we have investigated the synthesis of 2-acetylpyrroles by using 1,4- oxazepines and N-propargylic β-enaminones as starting materials. We have achieved that the synthesis of the mentioned pyrroles via two original synthesis procedures. In the light of these two methods, 19 novel pyrrole derivatives have been synthesized.


Synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted thiophenes from ketoalkynes

Karadeniz, Eda; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2019)
Synthesis of heterocyclic compounds has become an important area among organic chemists since they occupy a unique position in the design and synthesis of novel biologically active agents that exhibit noteworthy medicinal activities. In this regard, N-propargylic β-enaminones have been recognized as valuable substrates in synthesis because they afford a variety of heterocyclic compounds upon treatment with proper reagents. In this study, new reactivity patterns of N-propargylic β-enaminones were investigate...
The Synthesis of 6- and 7- membered heterocyclic ring systems fused to pyridine ring
Dinçoflaz, Yasemin; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
The synthesis of the nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds is one of the leading research areas throughout the organic chemistry due to their significant activities in biological systems. Among the various biologically active molecules, pyridine-fused ring systems are of prime importance on the grounds of their proven clinical roles. The coupling reactions with 6-membered heterocyclic compounds and diazepines gave rise to new pharmalogical compounds in recent years. Therefore, our object was the synthe...
