Ferrocenyl-substituted aziridinylmethanol (Fam-1) was used as a catalyst with zinc for the asymmetric nitroaldol (Henry) reaction. This catalyst worked with a variety of aldehydes (aromatic, aliphatic, alpha,beta-unsaturated, and heteroaromatic) and alpha-ketoesters to give the nitroaldol product in up to 97% yield and 91% ee. The chiral ligand call be recovered and recycled Without losing its activity.

Odabaş, Serhat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
The asymmetric synthesis of N-aryl substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohols and their applications in asymmetric borane reduction and enantioselective diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde reactions were performed starting from meso-anhydride 51 that is the cycloadduct of cyclopentadiene and maleic anhydride. The desymmetrization of meso-anhydride 51 was achieved by using quinine or quinidine with very high enantiomeric excess value (up to 98% ee) and with high chemical yield. The quinine-mediated desymmetrizati...
Intermolecular addition of aldehydes to ketones via acyl phosphonates
Esiringü, İlker; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2008)
This thesis presents a new developed method for first intermolecular aldehyde/ketone cross benzoin coupling. Protected α-keto tertiary alcohols are synthesized starting from easily available acyl phosphonates and ketones via Brook rearrangement in the presence of catalytic amount of cyanide ion. The scopes and the limitations of the methods for the synthesis of tertiary alcohols with α-keto group are discovered.
Asymmetric synthesis of norbornene based 1,4-amino alcohol derivatives and applications in asymmetric transformations
Sünbül, Murat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2005)
The asymmetric synthesis of cis-1,4-aminoalcohols with norbornene backbone was performed starting with simple and cheap anhydride 30. Quinine-mediated desymmetrization of anhydride 30 with methanol resulted in (2S,3R)-(-)-cis-hemiester 31 (98% e.e.). Chemoselective amination with HMPTA and NH4OH followed by LAH reduction afforded (2S,3R)-(+)-36 and (2S,3R)-(-)-37, respectively. The amidoester (2S,3R)-(-)-32 was transformed into chiral ligand (2S,3R)-(-)-35 with Grignard reaction followed by LAH reduction. T...
Unusual fragmentation of fulvene endoperoxides with phenyliodosyl bis(trifluoroacetate) (PIFA)
Ozer, G; Saracoglu, N; Balcı, Metin (Wiley, 2003-05-01)
Reaction of unsaturated fulvene endoperoxides with dimethyl 1,2,4,5-tetrazine-3,6-dicarboxylate gave saturated fulvene endoperoxides containing the 1,2-dihydropyridazine ring. Treatment of dihydropyridazine endoperoxides with water followed by phenyliodosyl bis(trifluoroacetate) oxidation provided acrylic acid derivatives and dimethyl pyridazine-3,6-dicarboxylate.
Asymmetric synthesis of norbornene based 1,4-Aminoalcohol derivatives and applications in asymmetric diethylzinc reactions
Erdem, Mine; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
The asymmetric synthesis of chiral norbornene based 1,4-aminoalcohols and their applications in asymmetric diethylzinc addition reactions was perfomed starting from meso-anhydride 50. The desymmetrization of this meso-anhydride 50 was done by the usage of quinine or quinidine cinchona alkaloids with very high enantiomeric excess values (up to 98% ee) and chemical yields. The Quinidine-mediated desymmetrization of meso-anhydride 50 with methanol gave (2R,3S)-(+)-cis-monoester 51. The amination of this result...
