A proline-calix[4]arene thiourea host-guest complex catalyzed intermolecular aldol reaction of aromatic aldehydes with cyclohexanone has been developed. The anti-configured products were obtained in good yields and with high enantioselectivities. The reaction is proposed to work via a modified Houk-List model, where the carboxylate part of the praline constitutes as a supramolecular system with the thiourea. The outcome of the study indicates the influence of the calix[4]arene thiourea on both the reactivity and selectivity in a non-polar reaction medium, even in the presence of water at moderate temperatures.

Benzaldehyde Lyase-Catalyzed Direct Amidation of Aldehydes with Nitroso Compounds
Ayhan, Peruze; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Wiley, 2011-03-07)
Benzaldehyde lyase from the Pseudomonas fluorescens catalyzes the reaction of aromatic aldehydes with nitroso compounds and furnishes N-arylhydroxamic acids in high yields. Aromatic aldehydes and benzoins are converted into enamine-carbanion-like intermediates prior to their reaction with nitroso compounds. The kinetic resolution of rac-2-hydroxy-1,2-diphenylethanones furnished (S)-benzoins and arylhydroxamic acids with high enantioselectivities and conversions.

Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; SAYRAC, T; WATT, DS (1990-12-01)
The alpha-oxidation of cyclic derivatives of beta-alkoxy-alpha, beta-unsaturated ketones using manganese (III) acetate in the presence of various carboxylic acids provided a convenient synthesis of 5-acyloxy-3-alkoxy-2-cyclopentenones and 6-acyloxy-3-alkoxy-2-cyclohexenones.
Lewis acid catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloadditon reactions of stabilized azomethine ylides
Doğan, Özdemir; KANIŞKAN, Ümit (2001-01-01)
Diethylzinc was tested for the first time as the Lewis acid in 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of azomethine ylides to synthesize pyrrolidine derivatives. A new, easily applicable and highly selective method was developed for the synthesis of highly substituted pyrrolidines. By the application of this method, the synthesis of three new pyrrolidine derivatives was achieved.
