The high-temperature bromination of 1a,2,7,7a-tetrahydro-1H-cyclopropa[b] naphthalene and its carboethoxy derivative was studied. Reaction of the title compound with 1 mol of bromine in refluxing carbon tetrachloride resulted in the formation of ring-opening products. In the case of the carboethoxy derivative,bromination took place both regio- and stereospecifically at the benzylic positions,the cyclopropane ring did not undergo bond cleavage. A mechanism for the formation of the products and their dehydrobromination reactions is discussed.


High temperature bromination. Part 12: Bromination of 7-oxabenzonorbornadiene: Synthesis of 2,3-dibromo-7-oxabenzonorbornadiene
Altundas, A; Dastan, A; McKee, MM; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2000-08-11)
The electrophilic addition of bromine to 7-oxabenzonorbornadiene (8) at 0 degrees C led in high yield to the formation of dibromoaldehyde 10. However, high-temperature bromination of 8 in carbontetrachloride at 77 degrees C gave non-rearranged products 17 and 18. From the elimination of non-rearranged products, 2-bromo-7-oxabenzonorbornadiene (12) was obtained. Similarly, bromination of monobromide 12 at 77 degrees C yielded the non-rearranged tribromides 19 and 20 while bromination of 12 at 0 degrees C gav...
Intermolecular heterocyclization of alkynones with 2-mercaptoacetaldehyde under metal-free conditions: synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted thiophenes
Vatansever, Erol Can; Kilic, Kubra; Ozer, Merve Sinem; KOZA, GANİ; Menges, Nurettin; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2015-09-30)
A concise and regioselective approach for the synthesis of 2,3-disubstituted thiophene derivatives has been developed. The synthetic strategy relies on the reaction of an in situ generated 2-mercaptoacetaldehyde with various alkynones. Furthermore, we calculated the energy gap between the HOMO and the LUMO orbitals of all compounds and observed that the introduction of a strong electron-withdrawing group decreased the HOMO-LUMO energy gap.
Highly efficient and selective olefination of acyl phosphonates with ethyl diazoacetate catalyzed by a cobalt(II) porphyrin complex
Erturk, Erkan; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2008-08-04)
The cobalt(II) porphyrin complex (CoTPP) was found to be an efficient catalyst for the Wittig type olefination of acyl phosphonates with ethyl diazoacetate (EDA) in the presence of triphenylphosphine (Ph(3)P). By using this one pot methodology under mild conditions, densely functionalized vinyl phosphonates were obtained in high yields and high E/Z selectivities in relatively short reaction times. A rather broad substrate spectrum and steric influence on the reaction rate were observed.
Low and high temperature bromination of exocyclic dienes: high temperature bromination. Part 16
Horasan, N; Kara, Y; Azizoglu, A; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2003-05-19)
The electrophilic addition of bromine to an exocyclic diene, 5,6-dimethylenebicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-ene, in CCl4 at 0degreesC led to the formation of non-rearranged (73%) and rearranged products (27%). However, high temperature bromination of the exocyclic diene at 77degreesC suppressed the formation of the rearranged products. Similarly, bromination of 9,10-dimethylenetricyclo[]undeca-2,4,6-triene at -10degreesC gave only the exo-1,2-addition product. Bromination at +5degreesC resulted in the form...

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.
