A one-pot two-step protocol for the synthesis of 2-acetyl-1H-pyrroles from N-propargylic β-enaminones was described. When treated with zinc chloride in refluxing chloroform, N-propargylic β-enaminones produced in situ 2-methylene-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepines, which, upon further refluxing in methanol with zinc chloride, afforded 2-acetyl-1H-pyrroles. The process was found to be general for a wide variety of N-propargylic β-enaminones and yielded a diverse range of 2-acetyl-1H-pyrroles in good to high yields with large substrate scope and good functional group tolerance. This operationally easy method may provide a rapid access to functionalized 2-acetyl-1H-pyrroles of pharmacological interest.

One-step synthesis of hierarchical [B]-ZSM-5 using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide as mesoporogen
Yalcin, Busra Karakaya; İpek Torun, Bahar (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2020-01-01)
One-step facile synthesis of boron containing ZSM-5 microspheres is developed using 1,6-diaminohexane as the structure-directing agent and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide as the mesoporogen. High boron incorporation up to Si/B ratio of 38 is achieved and evidenced by the stretching vibrations of B-O-Si at 667 cm(-1) and 917 cm(-1) using Fourier-transform infrared spectra. The morphology of the crystals resembles berry-like spheres with sizes approximately 15 mu m, which is composed of aggregated nanocrystals...
One-pot synthesis of 2-ferrocenyl-substituted pyridines
KARADENİZ, EDA; Zora, Metin (2016-11-02)
A facile, one-pot method for the synthesis of 2-ferrocenylpyridines is described. When reacted with propargylamine, alpha,beta-alkynic ketones produced N-propargylic beta-enaminones in situ, which, in the presence of copper(I) chloride, underwent electrophilic cyclization to afford 2-ferrocenylpyridine derivatives in good to high yields. This cyclization was found to be general for a variety of alpha,beta-alkynic ketones and tolerated the presence of aryl groups with electron-withdrawing and electron-donati...
One-Pot Synthesis of Spiro-2H-pyrroles fromN-Propargylic beta-Enaminones
KARADENİZ, EDA; Zora, Metin (Georg Thieme Verlag KG, 2019-06-01)
A simple and general one-pot method for the synthesis of spiro-2 H -pyrroles has been developed. Initially, cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality were synthesized by conjugate addition of 1-ethynylcyclohexylamine to ,-alkynic ketones, followed by palladium-catalyzed coupling of the resulting N -propargylic -enaminones with aryl iodides. When subjected to basic conditions, the cyclohexane-embedded -enaminones with internal alkyne functionality underwent tandem nucleophilic cycli...
One-pot synthesis of iodine-substituted 1,4-oxazepines
Zora, Metin; KELGÖKMEN, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-28)
A facile one-pot method for the synthesis of iodine-substituted 1,4-oxazepines is reported. When reacted with ZnCl2 and I-2 in DCM at 40 degrees C, N-propargylic beta-enaminones, prepared by the conjugate addition of propargylamine to alpha,beta-alkynic ketones, underwent 7-exo-dig cyclization by zinc chloride and concomitant reaction with molecular iodine to afford 2-(iodomethylene)-2,3-dihydro-1,4-oxazepines in good to high yields. This cyclization was found to occur with broad scope of substrates and hig...
A novel one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted 1,2,4-oxadiazoles
Zora, Metin; Kelgokmen, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-01)
One-pot synthesis of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles via the reaction between 3-ferrocenylpropynal and amidoximes is described. 3-Ferrocenylpropynal reacts with a variety of amidoximes in the presence of KOH in refluxing dioxane to afford a broad range of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole derivatives. The reaction first produces the corresponding conjugate addition product which, upon cyclization and rearrangement, yields the targeted 1,2,4-oxadiazole. The reaction appears to be general for a diversity of amidox...
