Potassium permanganate/carboxylic acid/organic solvent: a powerful reagent for enone oxidation and aryl coupling reactions

2008-06-30
The alpha'-acetoxylation of enones and the alpha-acetoxylation of aromatic ketones were carried out with potassium permanganate and acetic acid, in which acetoxylation products were obtained in 74-96% yields. The same reaction was carried out with carboxylic acids other than acetic acid, which furnished corresponding acyloxy ketones with the same regioselectivity. For the first time, formyloxylation products were synthesized in a 61-85% yield by using formic acid. The potassium permanganate and acetic acid method was also used for aryl coupling reactions. The reaction of arylboronic acids and arylhydrazines in benzene with potassium permanganate and acetic acid in turn furnished biaryls in 85-96% yield. We have shown that potassium permanganate/carboxylic acid/organic solvent behaves as manganese(III) acetate.

The first part of the thesis presents the KMnO4/ carboxylic acid/ organic solvent which is a powerful reagent for C-C bond formation, aryl coupling reactions and enone oxidation. The a¢-acetoxylation of enones and the a-acetoxylation of aromatic ketones were carried out with potassium permanganate and acetic acid, in which acetoxylation products were obtained in 74-96% yields. The same reaction was carried out with carboxylic acids other than acetic acid, which furnished corresponding acyloxy ketones with t...
Manganese(III) acetate oxidation of some ketones in the presence of 3-chloropropionic acid and theoretical investigation of the products
Akdağ, Akın; Turker, L (2001-08-01)
Manganese(III) acetate oxidation of some ketones in the presence of 3-chloropropionic acid was carried out. The products were characterized. The experimental results were compared with the theoretical ones which was based on AM1 (UHF) type semi-empirical calculations. The theoretical results disfavor any mechanism solely based on radical stability involving radicals originating from the reactants.
Sulfated zirconia in SBA-15 structures with strong Bronsted acidity as observed by H-1 MAS NMR spectroscopy
Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yılmaz, Aysun; Üner, Deniz (2007-05-01)
In order to prepare high surface area highly acidic catalysts, different weight loadings of ZrO2 were incorporated in the SBA-15 structures which are subsequently sulfated by treating in 0.25 M H2SO4. The catalysts were characterized by means of TEM, XRD, N-2 adsorption, and H-1 MAS NMR. Bronsted type acidities of sulfated zirconia included SBA-15 materials were identified by a sharp H-1 MAS NMR line at 10.6 ppm. The highest acidity was obtained in the 25 mol% ZrO2 included SBA-15 catalyst with a BET surfac...
Manganese(III) acetate mediated oxidation of N-methylindol and N-methylcarbazol derivatives
Demir, Ayhan S.; Tural, Servet (ARKAT USA, Inc., 2008-6-22)
Manganese(III) acetate mediated oxidation of 1-alkyl-1H-indole and 9-methyl-9H-carbazole was studied. 1-Methyl-1H-indole gives the 1-acetoxymethyl derivative with good yield. 1-Methyl- 2-phenyl-1H-indole furnished the oxidation of the methyl group and C-3 of indole to obtain the corresponding acetoxy derivatives. 1-ethyl-2-phenyl derivative only furnished the C-3 acetoxylation product. 1,2-Dimethyl-1H-indole furnished oxidation on both of the methyl groups. The major products are 1-methyl-1H-indole-2-carbal...
Manganese(III) acetate-mediated oxidative coupling of phenylhydrazines with benzene: a novel method for biaryl coupling
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Reis, O; Ozgul-Karaaslan, E (2001-01-01)
The reaction of phenylhydrazines with benzene in the presence of manganese(III) acetate affords biaryls in good yields. The same reaction was carried out with similar oxidants, such as Co-III, Ce-IV and Pb-IV; among these oxidants Mn-III acetate shows higher efficiency and selectivity.
