Cycloaddition reaction of singlet oxygen and 4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazoline-3,5-dione (PTAD) to various cycloheptatriene derivatives was investigated. The addition of PTAD to 3,8adihydroazulen-1(2H)-one gave exclusively a norcaradiene adduct whereas the addition to 3,4- dihydroazulen-1(2H)-one resulted in the formation of a cycloheptatriene adduct. Photooxygenation of dihydroazulen-1(2H)-one afforded solely a [2+4] cycloaddition product derived from cycloheptatriene. Photooxygenation of the reduced product, 1,2,3,8atetrahydroazulen-1-yl acetate gave the all possible cycloaddition products. The product distribution was not affected upon reduction of the carbonyl group. On the other hand, photooxygenation of dimethyl cyclohepta-3,5,7-triene-1,3-dicarboxylate gave mainly addition products derived from the norcaradiene structure. The formation of the products was explained by a photochemically allowed 1,7-suprafacial hydrogen shift under the reaction conditions followed by singlet oxygen addition.

Cycloaddition reaction of singlet oxygen and 4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazoline-3,5-dione(PTAD) to various cycloheptatriene derivatives was investigated. The addition of PTAD to 3,8a-dihydroazulen-1(2H)-one gave exclusively a norcaradiene adduct whereas the addition to 3,4-dihydroazulen- 1(2H)-one resulted in the formation of a cycloheptatriene adduct. Photooxygenation of dihydroazulen-1(2H)-oneafforded solely a [2+ 4] cycloaddition product derived from cycloheptatriene. Photooxygenation of the reduced product, 1,2,...
The catalytic activity of space versus terrestrial synthesized zeolite Beta catalysts in the Meerwein Ponndorf Verley Reactions: Support for PFAL as the Lewis active site for cis-alcohol selectivity
Akata, Burcu; Goodrich, Trevor L.; Ziemer, Katherine S.; Sacco, Albert (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-01-01)
The Lewis activity of the Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley (MPV) reactions is hypothesized to be due to partial framework aluminum (PFAl) that is either octahedrally or tri-coordinated. Crystals grown in the ftee-fall environment of low earth orbit (LEO) are more uniform; that is, have fewer lattice "defects" compared to those grown in a gravity field (i.e., on earth). Therefore, crystals grown in orbit should be less catalytically active relative to their earth grown counterparts. The catalytic activity towards th...
Chemistry of bicyclic endoperoxides derived from dihydropyridine derivatives: Attempted synthesis of polyhydroxypiperidine derivatives
Salamci, Emine; Bayram, Beyhan; Balcı, Metin (2006-01-01)
To achieve the synthesis of azasugar derivatives with the utilization of singlet oxygen, pyridine was used as the starting material. The reduction of pyridine followed by a singlet oxygen reaction afforded cyclic aza-endoperoxides (14 and 16). However, many attempts were made to convert the azaendoperoxides to the corresponding di- and triacetates without success. However, the base-catalyzed rearrangement of 14 gave unprecedented rearrangement products 23 and 24.
The adsorptıon and dıssocıatıon of AsH₃ and B₂H₆ molecules on stepped ge(100) surface
Türkmenoğlu, Mustafa; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay; Department of Physics (2011)
In this work, the doping processes of the SA type stepped Ge (100) surface by arsine (AsH3) and diborane (B2H6) gas flow have been simulated seperately by the possible adsorption and dissociation models. The most stable adsorption and dissociation models of AsH3 and B2H6 on stepped Ge(100) surface have been determined by the local minimum total energy and/or binding energy calculations based on Hartree-Fock Theory. The present calculations have shown that, the step region (both up and down terraces) of the ...
Oxidation of some alkoxy-cycloheptatriene derivatives: unusual formation of furan and furanoids from cycloheptatrienes
Coskun, Ahmet; Guney, Murat; Dastan, Arif; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2007-06-04)
The oxidation of some alkoxy tropone and tropone ketal derivatives with singlet oxygen and m-chloroperbenzoic acid was investigated. In most cases furan and furanoid derivatives were isolated. The structures of the formed products were determined by means of spectral data and the formation mechanism of these unusual products is discussed.
