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.


Synthesis of various camphor-based chiral pyridine derivatives
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.
Synthesis of 1,2,3,5-tetrasubstituted pyrrole derivatives from 2-(2-bromoallyl)-1,3-dicarbonyl compounds
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Akhmedov, IM; Sesenoglu, O (Elsevier BV, 2002-12-02)
2-(2-Bromoallyl)-1,3-dicarbonyl compounds are converted into beta-enamino, beta-hydrazino esters and ketones, followed by base-promoted cyclization, leading to the formation of the corresponding 1,2,3,5-tetrasubstituted pyrroles. 1,2,4- and 1,2,3,4-Substituted pyrroles are also isolated as minor products. Starting from the 2-(2-bromoallyl)-cyclohexane-1,3-dione the corresponding tetrahydro indolone is prepared in good yield.
Synthesis of chiral acetoxy lactones via the Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of cyclic aromatic acetoxy ketones
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Aybey, Asuman (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
The alpha-acetoxylation of indanones and tetralones by using Mn(OAc)(3) followed by the enzyme catalyzed kinetic resolution of acetoxy ketones furnished both of the enantiomers of alpha-acetoxy ketones in good chemical and optical yields. The Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of alpha-acetoxy ketones with m-CPBA, CF(3)SO(3)H, and CH(2)O(2), at rt gives the corresponding lactones without racemization. The acetoxy ketone moiety migrates selectively in order to form lactones. The mild hydrolysis of lactones affords ph...
Efficient rearrangement of epoxides catalyzed by a mixed-valent iron trifluoroacetate [Fe3O(O2CCF3)(6)(H2O)(3)]
Erturk, Erkan; Gollu, Mehmet; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2010-03-27)
The mixed-valent oxo-centered triiron(III, III, II) trifluoroacetate complex [(Fe2FeO)-Fe-III-O-II(C2CCF3)(6)(H2O)(3)] Was prepared by reacting anhydrous iron(III) chloride with boiling trifluoroaceric acid under nitrogen. The non-hygroscopic and readily available mixed-valent triiron trifluoroacetate complex Was found to be an efficient catalyst for the regioselective rearrangement of epoxides. A number of carbonyl compounds formed via the rearrangement of epoxides could be obtained by a simple filtration ...
Reaction of ferrocenylcarbene complexes of Cr, Mo and W with alkynes: Synthesis of ferrocenylcyclobutenones, ferrocenylfurans and ferrocenylketoesters
Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2001-07-09)
Ferrocenylcarbene complexes of Cr, Mo and W react with alkynes to produce cyclobutenones, furans and/or ketoesters. The reaction is quite sensitive to the substituents of the alkyne, regardless of the identity of the metal. Cyclobutenones are formed only in the reactions of diphenylacetylene, a rare occurrence for metal carbene complexes. Ketoesters are secondary reaction products and result From oxidation of furan derivatives during the course of the reaction and/or silica-gel chromatography.
