The phenyl-substituted conduritol B 8 was prepared in racemic form in a five-step sequence starting from 2-phenyl-1,4-benzoquinone(10) (Scheme 1). The reaction mechanism of the key step 12b -> 13 is discussed (Scheme 2).


Novel enantioselective synthesis of both enantiomers of furan-2-yl Amines and amino acids
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Sesemoglu, O; Ulku, D; Arici, C (Wiley, 2003-01-01)
A new enantioselective synthesis of furan-2-yl amines and amino acids is described, in which the key step is the oxazaborolidine-catalyzed enantioselective reduction of O-benzyl (E)- and (Z)-furan-2-yl ketone oximes to the corresponding chiral amines. The chirality of the furan-2-yl amines is fully controlled by the appropriate choice of the geometrical isomer of the O-benzyl oxime. Oxidation of the furan ring furnished amino acids in high yields.
Chemistry of the benzotropone endoperoxides and their conversion into tropolone derivatives: Unusual endoperoxide rearrangements
Guney, M; Dastan, A; Balcı, Metin (Wiley, 2005-01-01)
The chemistry of two bicyclic endoperoxides, obtained by photooxygenation of 2,3-benzotropone (= 5H-benzocyclohepten-5-one 5) and of its ethyl carboxylate derivative 15, was investigated with the aim of synthesizing the respective benzotropolone derivatives. The reaction of the endoperoxide 10 derived from 5 with thiourea gave the desired benzotropolone, i.e., 6-hvdroxy-5H-benzocyclohepten-5-one (11), in high yield (Scheme 1). On the other hand, the endoperoxide 16 derived from the ethyl carboxylate derivat...
Asymmetric synthesis of novel 1,4-aminoalcohol ligands with norbornene and norbornane backbone: use in the asymmetric diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde
Tanyeli, Cihangir; ERDEM, Mine; ÇAKIR, Esen; KESKİN, Eda (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-27)
The asymmetric synthesis of cis-1,4-aminoalcohols with norbornene and norbornane backbone was performed starting with (2S, 3R)-(-)-cis-hemiester 1 (98% ee). Chemoselective amination with HMPTA followed by Grignard reactions and subsequent LAH reductions afforded compounds 5a-d. cis-Hemiester 1 was also transformed into chiral ligands 7a-f and 9a-d with the DCC coupling method followed by LAH reduction using acyclic, heterocyclic amines and various aniline derivatives and p-toluenesulfonamide, respectively. ...
Synthesis, characterization, crystal and molecular structure of 1,5-Dihydro-2H-cyclopenta[1,2-b : 5,4-b ']dipyridin-2-imine
Baysal, Akin; Durap, Feyyaz; Gumgum, Bahattin; Yildirim, Leyla T.; Ulku, Dincer; Boga, Ayse Dilek; Özkar, Saim (Wiley, 2007-01-01)
The reaction of 1,5-diliydro-2H-cyclopenta[1,2-b:5,4-b'ldipyridin-2-one (3) with an alkylamine (butvlamine, hexylamine or ethylenediamine) yields, quite unexpectedly and in the absence of catalyst, the novel compound 1,5-dihydro-2H-cyclopentafl,2-b:5.4-b']dipyridin-2-imine (4) as the sole, analytically pure, solid product, which was fully characterized. The structure of 4 was unequivocally solved by single-crystal X-ray-diffraction analysis. The compound crystallizes in a monoclinic cell (space group P 2(1/...
Synthesis of novel norephedrine-based chiral ligands with multiple stereogenic centers and their application in enantioselective addition of diethylzinc to aldehyde and chalcone
Unaleroglu, C; Aydin, AE; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2006-03-06)
Novel norephedrine-based chiral ligands with multiple stereogenic centers were conveniently prepared from norephedrine and N-substituted pyrrole. These novel chiral ligands were used to catalyze the enantioselective addition of diethylzinc to aldehydes and to chalcone in high yields and with good to high enantioselectivities. The absolute configuration of products was found to be affected by the stereogenic centers on the norephedrine part of the novel chiral ligands.
