Iron-Catalyzed α-C-H Cyanation of Simple and Complex Tertiary Amines.

This manuscript details the development of a general and mild protocol for the α-C–H cyanation of tertiary amines and its application in late-stage functionalization. Suitable substrates include tertiary aliphatic, benzylic, and aniline-type substrates and complex substrates. Functional groups tolerated under the reaction conditions include various heterocycles and ketones, amides, olefins, and alkynes. This broad substrate scope is remarkable, as comparable reaction protocols for α-C–H cyanation frequently occur via free radical mechanisms and are thus fundamentally limited in their functional group tolerance. In contrast, the presented catalyst system tolerates functional groups that typically react with free radicals, suggesting an alternative reaction pathway. All components of the described catalyst system are readily available, allowing implementation of the presented methodology without the need for lengthy catalyst synthesis.

Ni-MCM-41 type mesoporous catalysts synthesized by one-pot hydrothermal procedure for steam reforming of ethanol
Ozdogan, Ekin; Doğu, Timur; DOĞU, GÜLŞEN (2007-01-02)
In the present study, Ni incorporated MCM-41 structured mesoporous catalysts with a Ni/Si atomic ratio of 0.036 and 0.15 were prepared by a direct hydrothermal synthesis procedure. These catalysts had surface area values of 860.5 m(2)/g (Ni-MCM-41 having a Ni/Si ratio of 0.036) and 944.9 m(2)/g (Ni-MCM-41 having a Ni/Si ratio of 0.15). They also had narrow pore size distributions with average pore diameters of 2.7-2.6 nm respectively. Ni MCM-41 synthesized by the one-pot hydrothermal synthesis procedure sho...
Electrochemical study of tricarbonyl(eta(6)-cyclooctatetraene)metal(0) complexes of the group 6 elements
Yilmaz, GA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Özkar, Saim (1998-08-01)
Tricarbonyl(eta(6)-cyclooctatetraene)metal(0) complexes of the group 6 elements were prepared by using the procedures described in the literature with some minor modifications and identified by IR and NMR spectroscopy. Their electrochemical behavior was studied by using cyclic voltammetry in dichloromethane solution containing 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as supporting electrolyte. Their oxidation and reduction potentials were measured and discussed in terms of the frontier energy levels in co...
Metal ion functional polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 2-aminopyridine
Öztürk, Yurdagül; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2014-08-05)
A novel Co2+ ion functional benzoxazine monomer based on phenol and 2-aminopyridine was prepared, polymerized by step-wise curing and characterized via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry in addition to classical spectrometry techniques. Curing of neat monomer yielded a highly cross-linked polymer as a consequence of competing and consecutive reactions involving the heterocyclic ring opening followed by attack of -NCH2 groups to ortho and para positions of phenol and pyridine rings and coupling of --NCH2 gro...
Electrokinetically Driven Flows in Microchannels and Capillaries
Sert, Cüneyt (2006-01-01)
This paper aims to provide an introduction to electrokinetically driven flows in microchannel and capillaries for the novice. Basic definitions and the terminology used in electro-osmosis and electrophoresis are summarized. Equations for the Poisson-Boltzman model of the Electric Double Layer are presented. Previous theoretical, numerical and experimental studies are reviewed.
Iron(III) trifluoroacetate [Fe(O2CCF3)3] catalyzed epoxide opening with amines
Erturk, Erkan; Demir, Ayhan S. (ARKAT USA, Inc., 2008-1-27)
Non-hygroscopic, non-toxic, and readily available iron(III) trifluoroacetate [Fe(O2CCF3)(3)] was found to be a highly regioselective catalyst for the ring opening of a wide variety of epoxides with diverse amines under solvent-free conditions. The stereospecific ring opening of (R)-styrene oxide (4) with p-anisidine (2b) in the presence of 1 mol% of Fe(O2CCF3)(3) gave 2-(p-methoxyphenyl-amino)-2-phenylethanol (5b) in enantiopure form (> 99 % ee) within 60 minutes.
