Mn(OAc)(3) mediated alpha'-acetoxylation of alpha,beta-unsaturated enones is reinvestigated from a synthetic and mechanistic point of view and an improved procedure based on the use of acetic acid as a co-solvent is presented. Excellent results were obtained for a variety of structurally diverse and synthetically important enones under the optimized conditions.


Divergent synthesis of polysubstituted isoxazoles, isoxazoline N-oxides, and dihydroisoxazoles by a one-pot cascade reaction
Rouf, Abdul; ŞAHİN, Ertan; Tanyeli, Cihangir (Elsevier BV, 2017-01-26)
An efficient one-pot synthesis of a new class of 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoline N-oxides/isoxazoles and dihydroisoxazoles is developed by a green approach from aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes by controlling the reaction conditions. Aldehydes were reacted with ethyl nitroacetate in the presence of DABCO as a catalyst under ultrasonication. In aromatic aldehydes, isoxazoline N-oxides were obtained exclusively when the reaction was carried out at 40 degrees C, but raising the temperature to 80 degrees C iso...
Asymmetric aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate mediated by a cinchona-based bifunctional urea catalyst
Okumus, Seda; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-30)
The first asymmetric synthesis of ethyl 4-aryl-3-azido-2-hydroxy-2-methyl-4-oxobutanoates via a cinchona organocatalyst induced aldol addition of alpha-azido ketones to ethyl pyruvate has been developed. The coupling reaction under optimized conditions was carried out to furnish tetrafunctionalized synthons with enantioselectivities of up to 91:9 and enriched diastereoselectivities of up to 95:5 (syn:anti).
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.
Enzyme catalyzed hydroxymethylation of aromatic aldehydes with formaldehyde. Synthesis of hydroxyacetophenones and (S)-benzoins
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Ayhan, P; Igdir, AC; Duygu, AN (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-26)
Benzaldehyde lyase from the Pseudomonas Fluorescens catalyzed reaction of aromatic aldehydes with formaldehyde providing 2-hydroxy-1-arylethan-1-one in high yields via an acyloin linkage. Kinetic resolution of rac-benzoins with formaldehyde providing (S)-benzoins and 2-hydroxy-1-arylethan-1-one via C-C bond cleavage and a bond formation reaction.
