Synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones

Zora, Metin
Acikalin, S
A squarate-based synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones is described. Thermolysis of ferrocenyl-substituted cyclobutenones, prepared from ferrocenyl cyclobutenediones and alkenyllithiums, affords hydroquinones, which furnish, upon oxidation, ferrocenyl quinones. Ferrocenyl cyclobutenediones have been prepared from known cyclo butenediones by nucleophilic addition of ferrocenyllithium followed by hydrolysis, Pd/Cu-cocatalyzed cross-coupling with (tri-n-butylstannyl)ferrocene or Friedel-Crafts alkylation with ferrocene.


Synthesis of 2-ferrocenylidene-4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones
Zora, Metin; Eralp, Tugce (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-29)
A squarate-based synthesis of 2-ferrocenylidene-4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones is described. When refluxed in dioxane at 100 degrees C, heated with silica gel as a solvent free grinded solid mixture at 125 degrees C or stirred with silica gel in ethyl acetate at room temperature, 4-ferrocenylethynyl-4-hydroxy-2-cyclobutenones, prepared from ethynylferrocene and 3-cyclobutene-1,2-diones, afforded 2-ferrocenylidene-4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones as the major or single product of the reaction. In some cases, ferrocenyl ...
Divergent synthesis of polysubstituted isoxazoles, isoxazoline N-oxides, and dihydroisoxazoles by a one-pot cascade reaction
Rouf, Abdul; ŞAHİN, Ertan; Tanyeli, Cihangir (Elsevier BV, 2017-01-26)
An efficient one-pot synthesis of a new class of 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoline N-oxides/isoxazoles and dihydroisoxazoles is developed by a green approach from aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes by controlling the reaction conditions. Aldehydes were reacted with ethyl nitroacetate in the presence of DABCO as a catalyst under ultrasonication. In aromatic aldehydes, isoxazoline N-oxides were obtained exclusively when the reaction was carried out at 40 degrees C, but raising the temperature to 80 degrees C iso...
Synthesis of thio- and furan-fused heterocycles: furopyranone, furopyrrolone, and thienopyrrolone derivatives
ERGUN, Merve; Dengiz, Çağatay; OZER, Merve Sinem; ŞAHİN, Ertan; BALCI, METİN (Elsevier BV, 2014-09-02)
We report herein the synthesis of a novel class of compounds, ethyl 4-oxo-4H-furo[3,2-c]pyran-6-yl carbonate, (7E)-7-[(dimethylamino)methylene]-4H-furo[3,2-c]pyran-4,6(7H)-dione, 5-oxo-N-phenyl-2,5-dihydro-4H-furo[3,2-b]pyrrole-4-carboxamide,and 5-oxo-N-phenyl-5,6-dihydro-4H-thieno[3,2-b] pyrrole-4-carboxamide starting from the corresponding acid derivatives. Intramolecular cyclization in the presence of thionyl chloride formed the target fused ring systems. Additional transformation was seen in the cycliza...
Synthesis of chiral acetoxy lactones via the Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of cyclic aromatic acetoxy ketones
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Aybey, Asuman (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
The alpha-acetoxylation of indanones and tetralones by using Mn(OAc)(3) followed by the enzyme catalyzed kinetic resolution of acetoxy ketones furnished both of the enantiomers of alpha-acetoxy ketones in good chemical and optical yields. The Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of alpha-acetoxy ketones with m-CPBA, CF(3)SO(3)H, and CH(2)O(2), at rt gives the corresponding lactones without racemization. The acetoxy ketone moiety migrates selectively in order to form lactones. The mild hydrolysis of lactones affords ph...
Synthesis of various camphor-based chiral pyridine derivatives
Tanyeli, Cihangir; Isik, M (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-19)
(+)-beta-Hydroxymethylenecamphor 1 and enamines 2a-e were transformed into chiral camphor-based pyridine derivatives 3a-e via a tandem condensation reaction in good yields.
