One-pot synthesis of 2-ferrocenyl-substituted pyridines

Zora, Metin
A facile, one-pot method for the synthesis of 2-ferrocenylpyridines is described. When reacted with propargylamine, alpha,beta-alkynic ketones produced N-propargylic beta-enaminones in situ, which, in the presence of copper(I) chloride, underwent electrophilic cyclization to afford 2-ferrocenylpyridine derivatives in good to high yields. This cyclization was found to be general for a variety of alpha,beta-alkynic ketones and tolerated the presence of aryl groups with electron-withdrawing and electron-donating substituents. The enrichment of the pyridine core with a ferrocenyl moiety, in addition to benzoyl groups, may offer potential for the synthesis of molecules of pharmacological interest.


One-pot synthesis of iodine-substituted 1,4-oxazepines
Zora, Metin; KELGÖKMEN, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-28)
A facile one-pot method for the synthesis of iodine-substituted 1,4-oxazepines is reported. When reacted with ZnCl2 and I-2 in DCM at 40 degrees C, N-propargylic beta-enaminones, prepared by the conjugate addition of propargylamine to alpha,beta-alkynic ketones, underwent 7-exo-dig cyclization by zinc chloride and concomitant reaction with molecular iodine to afford 2-(iodomethylene)-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepines in good to high yields. This cyclization was found to occur with broad scope of substrates and hig...
A New Strategy for the Synthesis of 4-Propargyl-Substituted 1H-Pyrroles from N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-Enaminones
Yılmaz, Elif Serel; Zora, Metin (2019-10-09)
A new method for the synthesis of 4-propargyl-substituted 1H-pyrroles is described. When treated with sodium hydride in refluxing dichloromethane, N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones, synthesized by the coupling of N-propargylic beta-enaminones with phenylacetylene, afforded 4-propargyl-substituted pyrrole derivatives. This conversion was general for a variety of N-(5-phenyl-2,4-pentadiynyl) beta-enaminones and displayed broad functional group tolerance. During the reaction, not only cyclization of...
One-Pot Synthesis of Spiro-2H-pyrroles fromN-Propargylic beta-Enaminones
KARADENİZ, EDA; Zora, Metin (Georg Thieme Verlag KG, 2019-06-01)
A simple and general one-pot method for the synthesis of spiro-2 H -pyrroles has been developed. Initially, cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality were synthesized by conjugate addition of 1-ethynylcyclohexylamine to ,-alkynic ketones, followed by palladium-catalyzed coupling of the resulting N -propargylic -enaminones with aryl iodides. When subjected to basic conditions, the cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality underwent tandem nucleophilic cycli...
A novel one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted 1,2,4-oxadiazoles
Zora, Metin; Kelgokmen, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-01)
One-pot synthesis of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles via the reaction between 3-ferrocenylpropynal and amidoximes is described. 3-Ferrocenylpropynal reacts with a variety of amidoximes in the presence of KOH in refluxing dioxane to afford a broad range of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole derivatives. The reaction first produces the corresponding conjugate addition product which, upon cyclization and rearrangement, yields the targeted 1,2,4-oxadiazole. The reaction appears to be general for a diversity of amidox...
Simple chemoenzymatic access to enantiopure pharmacologically interesting (R)-2-hydroxypropiophenones
Demir, AS; Hamamcı, Haluk; Sesenoglu, O; Aydogan, F; Capanoglu, D; Neslihanoglu, R (2001-07-30)
A chemoenzymatic synthesis of pharmacological interesting (R)-2-hydroxypropiophenones starting from propiophenone derivatives is described. Manganese(III) acetate-mediated acetoxylation followed by fungus-mediated hydrolysis of propiophenone derivatives affords (R)-2-hydroxypropiophenones in high enantiomeric excess.
