    Structure-Reactivity Relationships of Conformationally Armed Disaccharide Donors and Their Use in the Synthesis of a Hexasaccharide Related to the Capsular Polysaccharide from Streptococcus pneumoniae Type 372017In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 82, no 15, p. 8123-8140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To advance the field of glycobiology, efficient synthesis methods of oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates are a requisite. In glycosylation reactions using superarmed donors, both selectivity and reactivity issues must be considered, and we herein investigate these aspects for differently protected beta-linked 2-O-glycosylated glucosyl donors carrying bulky tert-butyldimethylsilyl groups to different extents. The acceptors in reactions being secondary alcohols presents a challenging situation with respect to steric crowding. Conformational pyranose ring equilibria of the superarmed disaccharide donors with axial-rich substituents contained skew and boat conformations, and three-state models were generally assumed. With NIS/TfOH as the promotor, 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylpyridine as the base, and a dichloromethane/toluene solvent mixture, ethyl 1-thio-beta-d-glucosyl disaccharide donors having 6-O-benzyl group(s) besides tert-butyldimethylsilyl groups were efficiently coupled at -40 degrees C to the hydroxyl group at position 3 of glucopyranosyl acceptors to form beta-(1 -> 2),beta-(1 -> 3)-linked trisaccharides, isolated in excellent 95% yield. The more axial-rich donors in skew and boat conformations are thus preorganized closer to the assumed transition state in these glycosylation reactions. The developed methodology was subsequently applied in the synthesis of a multibranched hexasaccharide related to the capsular polysaccharide from Streptococcus pneumoniae type 37, which consists of a beta-(1 -> 3)-linked backbone and a beta-(1 -> 2)-linked side chain of D-glucosyl residues in disaccharide repeating units.

    Regiospecific One-Pot Synthesis of Diaryliodonium Tetrafluoroborates from Arylboronic Acids and Aryl Iodides2008In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 73, no 12, p. 4602-4607Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Diaryliodonium salts have recently received considerable attention as mild arylation reagents in organic synthesis. This paper describes a regiospecific, sequential one-pot synthesis of symmetrical and unsymmetrical diaryliodonium tetrafluoroborates, which are the most popular salts in metal-catalyzed arylations. The protocol is fast and high-yielding and has a large substrate scope. Furthermore, the corresponding diaryliodonium triflates can conveniently be obtained via an in situ anion exchange.

    A General Suzuki Cross-Coupling Reaction of Heteroaromatics Catalyzed by Nanopalladium on Amino-Functionalized Siliceous Mesocellular Foam2014In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 79, no 9, p. 3946-3954Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions of heteroaromatics catalyzed by palladium supported in the cavities of amino-functionalized siliceous mesocellular foam are presented. The nanopalladium catalyst effectively couples not only heteroaryl halides with boronic acids but also heteroaryl halides with boronate esters, potassium trifluoroborates, MIDA boronates, and triolborates, producing a wide range of heterobiaryls in good to excellent yields. Furthermore, the heterogeneous palladium nanocatalyst can easily be removed from the reaction mixture by filtration and recycled several times with minimal loss in activity. This catalyst provides an alternative, environmentally friendly, low-leaching process for the preparation of heterobiaryls.

    Modeling Decomposition of N-Nitrosoamides in a Self-Assembled Capsule2019In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 84, no 11, p. 7354-7361Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Density functional theory calculations are employed to investigate the mechanism and energies of the decomposition of N-nitrosoamides in the presence of a resorcinarene-based self-assembled nanocapsule. From experiments, it is known that confinement in the capsule inhibits the thermal decomposition of these compounds. N-Nitrosoamides with both aromatic and aliphatic substituents are considered here and the calculations show that, for both kinds, binding to the capsule leads to a significant increase in the energy barrier of the rate-determining step, the 1,3 N -> O acyl transfer reaction. A distortion-interaction analysis is conducted to probe the reasons behind the inhibition of the reaction. In addition, we characterized hypothetical intermediates that might be involved in the formation of the decomposition products inside the capsule. Interestingly, it is found that the capsule stabilizes ion-pair species that are unstable in mesitylene solution. Finally, a possible explanation is proposed for the observed encapsulation of the decomposition product of only one of the substrates.

    A General Route to beta-Substituted Pyrroles by Transition-Metal Catalysis2016In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 81, no 4, p. 1450-1460Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An atom-efficient route to pyrroles substituted in the beta-position has been achieved in four high yielding steps by a combination of Pd, Ru, and Fe catalysis with only water and ethene as side-products. The reaction is general and gives pyrroles substituted in the beta-position with linear and branched alkyl, benzyl, or aryl groups in overall good yields. The synthetic route includes a Pd-catalyzed monoallylation step of amines with substituted allylic alcohols that proceeds to yield the monoallylated products in moderate to excellent yields. In a second step, unsymmetrical diallylated aromatic amines are generated from the reaction of a second allylic alcohol with high selectivity in moderate to good yields by control of the reaction temperature. Ru-catalyzed ring-closing metathesis performed on the diallylated aromatic amines yields the pyrrolines substituted in the beta-position in excellent yields. By addition of ferric chloride to the reaction mixture, a selective aromatization to yield the corresponding pyrroles substituted in the beta-position was achieved. A reaction mechanism involving a palladium hydride, generated from insertion of palladium to O-H of an allyl alcohol, that is responsible for the C-O bond cleavage to generate the pi-allyl intermediate is proposed.

    Direct Allylation of Quinones with Allylboronates2015In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 80, no 6, p. 3343-3348Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Allylboronates undergo C-H allylation of unsubstituted or monosubstituted benzoquinone and naphthoquinone substrates. In the case of 2,5- or 2,6-disubstituted quinones addition involving the substituted carbon takes place. Allylation with stereodefined allylboronates occurs with retention of the configuration.

    Kinetic Resolution and Chemoenzymatic Dynamic Kinetic Resolution of Functionalized γ-Hydroxy Amides2005In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 70, no 7, p. 2582-2587Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An efficient kinetic resolution of racemic gamma-hydroxy amides 1 was performed via Pseudomas cepacia lipase (PS-C)-catalyzed transesterification. The enzyme PS-C tolerates both variation in the chain length and different functionalities giving good to high enantioselectivity (E values of up to > 250). The combination of enzymatic kinetic resolution with a ruthenium-catalyzed racemization led to a dynamic kinetic resolution. The use of 2,4-dimethyl-3-pentanol as a hydrogen source to suppress ketone formation in the dynamic kinetic resolution yields the corresponding acetates in good yield and good to high enantioselectivity (ee's up to 98%). The synthetic utility of this procedure was illustrated by the practical synthesis of the versatile intermediate gamma-lactone (R)-5-methyltetrahydrofuran-2-one.

    Enzymatic Resolution, Desymmetrization and Dynamic Kinetic Asym-metric Transformation of 1,3-Cycloalkanediols2006In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 71, no 17, p. 6309-6316Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An efficient desymmetrization of cis-1,3-cyclohexanediol to (1S,3R)-3-(acetoxy)-1-cyclohexanol ((R,S)-2a) was performed via Candida antarctica lipase B (CALB)-catalyzed transesterification, in high yield (up to 93%) and excellent enantioselectivity (ee's up to >99.5%). (R,R)-Diacetate ((R,R)-3a) was obtained in a DYKAT process at room temperature from (1S,3R)-3-acetoxy-1-cyclohexanol ((R,S)-2a), in a high trans/cis ratio (91:9) and in excellent enantioselectivity of >99%. Metal- and enzyme-catalyzed dynamic transformation of cis/trans-1,3-cyclohexanediol using PS-C gave a high diastereoselectivity for cis-diacetate (cis/trans = 97:3). The (1R,3S)-3-acetoxy-1-cyclohexanol (ent-(R,S)-2a) was obtained from cis-diacetate by CALB-catalyzed hydrolysis in an excellent yield (97%) and selectivity (>99% ee). By deuterium labeling it was shown that intramolecular acyl migration does not occur in the transformation of cis-monoacetate to the cis-diacetate.

    Preparation of Tetrasubstituted Olefins Using Mono or Double Aerobic Direct C-H Functionalization Strategies: Importance of Steric Effects2015In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 80, no 5, p. 2796-2803Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A novel protocol for the synthesis of tetrasubstituted olefins through a biomimetic approach has been explored. Both mono- and diarylations were performed under ambient oxygen pressure, giving a range of highly hindered tetrasubstituted alkenes. For diarylation of disubstituted substrates, it was demonstrated that the second arylation is the rate-limiting step of the overall transformation.

    Cationic cyclization of 2-alkenyl-1,3-dithiolanes: DiastereoselectiveSynthesis of trans-decalins2011In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 76, no 9, p. 3274-3285Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An unprecedented and highly diastereoselective 6-endo-trig cyclization of 2-alkenyl-1,3-dithiolanes has beendeveloped yielding trans-decalins, an important scaffold present in numerous di- and triterpenes. The novelty of this 6-endo-trigc yclization stands in the stepwise mechanism involving 2-alkenyl-1,3-dithiolane, acting as a novel latent initiator. It is suggested that the thioketal opens temporarily under the influence of TMSOTf, triggering the cationic 6-endo-trig cyclization, andcloses after C−C bond formation and diastereoselective protonation to terminate the process. DFT calculations confirm this mechanistic proposal and provide a rationale for the observed diastereoselectivity. The reaction tolerates a wide range of functionalities and nucleophilic partners within the substrate. We have also shown that the one-pot 6-endo-trig cyclization followedby in situ 1,3-dithiolane deprotection afford directly the corresponding ketone. This improvement allowed the achievement of the shortest total synthesis of triptophenolide and the shortest formal synthesis of triptolide.

    Chemoenzymatic Dynamic Kinetic Resolution of Primary Amines Using a Recyclable Palladium Nanoparticle Catalyst Together with Lipases2014In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 79, no 9, p. 3747-3751Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A catalyst consisting of palladium nanoparticles supported on amino-functionalized siliceous mesocellular foam (Pd-AmP-MCF) was used in chemoenzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) to convert primary amines to amides in high yields and excellent ee's. The efficiency of the nanocatalyst at temperatures below 70 degrees C enables reaction conditions that are more suitable for enzymes. In the present study, this is exemplified by subjecting 1-phenylethylamine (1a) and analogous benzylic amines to DKR reactions using two commercially available lipases, Novozyme-435 (Candida antartica Lipase B) and Amano Lipase PS-C1 (lipase from Burkholderia cepacia) as biocatalysts. The latter enzyme has not previously been used in the DKR of amines because of its low stability at temperatures over 60 degrees C. The viability of the heterogeneous Pd-AmP-MCF was further demonstrated in a recycling study, which shows that the catalyst can be reused up to five times.

    Copper-Mediated Cyanotrifluoromethylation of Styrenes Using the Togni Reagent2013In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 78, no 21, p. 11087-11091Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Styrenes with an electron-deficient double bond undergo cyanotrifluoromethylation with a trifluoromethylated hypervalent iodine reagent in the presence of CuCN. The reaction proceeds under mild conditions in the presence of bulky phosphines or B(2)pin(2) additives. The process is highly regioselective and involves the consecutive formation of two C-C bonds in a single addition reaction. In the presence of a p-methoxy substituent in the styrene, oxytrifluoromethylation occurs instead of the cyanotrifluoromethylation.

    Theoretical comparison of p-nitrophenyl phosphate and sulfate Hydrolysis in aqueous solution: implications for enzyme-catalyzed sulfuryl transfer2011In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 76, no 22, p. 9228-9238Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Both phosphoryl and sulfuryl transfers are ubiquitous in biology, being involved in a wide range of processes, ranging from cell division to apoptosis. Additionally, it is becoming increasingly clear that enzymes that can catalyze phosphoryl transfer can often cross-catalyze sulfuryl transfer (and vice versa). However, while there have been extensive experimental and theoretical studies performed on phosphoryl transfer, the body of available research on sulfuryl transfer is comparatively much smaller. The present work presents a direct theoretical comparison of p-nitrophenyl phosphate and sulfate monoester hydrolysis, both of which are considered prototype systems for probing phosphoryl and sulfuryl transfer, respectively. Specifically, free energy surfaces have been generated using density functional theory, by initial geometry optimization in PCM using the 6-31+G* basis set and the B3LYP density functional, followed by single-point calculations using the larger 6-311+G** basis set and the COSMO continuum model. The resulting surfaces have been then used to identify the relevant transition states, either by further unconstrained geometry optimization or from the surface itself where possible. Additionally, configurational entropies were evaluated using a combination of the quasiharmonic approximation and the restraint release approach and added to the calculated activation barriers as a correction. Finally, the overall activation entropy was estimated by approximating the solvent contribution to the total activation entropy using the Langevin dipoles solvation model. We have reproduced both the experimentally observed activation barriers and the observed trend in the activation entropies with reasonable accuracy, as well as providing a comparison of calculated and observed 15N and 18O kinetic isotope effects. We demonstrate that, counterintuitively, the hydrolysis of the p-nitrophenyl sulfate proceeds through a more expansive pathway than its phosphate analogue. Additionally, we show that the solvation effects upon moving from the ground state to the transition state are quite different for both reactions, suggesting that the enzymes that catalyze these reactions would need active sites with quite different electrostatic preorganization for the efficient catalysis of either reaction (despite which many enzymes can catalyze both phosphoryl and sulfuryl transfer). We believe that such a comparative study is an important foundation for understanding the molecular basis for phosphate–sulfate cross-promiscuity within members of the alkaline phosphatase superfamily.

    Copper-mediated trifluoromethylation of allylic chlorides and trifluoroacetates was performed using a convenient Cu-CF3 reagent. The reaction is suitable for selective synthesis of allyl trifluoromethyl species. Mechanistic studies indicate that the reaction proceeds via a nucleophilic substitution mechanism involving allyl copper intermediates. The analogous Cu-F reagent was suitable for fluorination of allyl chlorides. Stereodefined cyclic substrates reacted regio- and stereoselectively.

    One-Pot Synthesis of Unsymmetric Diaryliodonium Salts from Iodine and Arenes2017In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 82, no 22, p. 11909-11914Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first synthesis of unsymmetric diaryliodonium salts directly from iodine and arenes is presented. The methodology provides diaryliodonium salts with the trimethoxyphenyl (TMP) moiety as dummy group. The protocol avoids the customary use of iodoarenes, which can be both expensive and toxic. Excess reagents are not required, and the reactions are performed under mild conditions. O-Arylations with these TMP salts were demonstrated to be highly chemoselective.

    Facile synthesis of Koser's reagent and derivatives from iodine or aryl iodides2010In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 75, no 21, p. 7416-7419Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first one-pot synthesis of neutral and electron-rich [hydroxy(tosyloxy)iodo]arenes (HTIBs) from iodine and arenes is presented, thereby avoiding the need for expensive iodine(III) precursors. A large set of HTIBs, including a polyfluorinated analogue, can be obtained from the corresponding aryl iodide under the same conditions. The reaction proceeds under mild conditions, without excess reagents, and is fast and high-yielding. Together, the two presented routes give access to a wide range of HTIBs, which are useful reagents in a variety of synthetic transformations.

    Cycloisomerization of Acetylenic Acids to gamma-Alkylidene Lactones using a Palladium(II) Catalyst Supported on Amino-Functionalized Siliceous Mesocellular Foam2014In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 79, no 3, p. 1399-1405Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cycloisomerization of various gamma-acetylenic acids to their corresponding gamma-alkylidene lactones by the use of a heterogeneous Pd(II) catalyst supported on amino-functionalized siliceous mesocellular foam is described. Substrates containing terminal as well as internal alkynes were cyclized in high to excellent yields within 2-24 h under mild reaction conditions. The protocol exhibited high regio- and stereoselectivity, favoring the exo-dig product with high Z selectivity. Moreover, the catalyst displayed excellent stability under the employed reaction conditions, as demonstrated by its good recyclability and low leaching.

    Control of the Regioselectivity in Catalytic Transformations Involving Amphiphilic Bis-allylpalladium Intermediates: Mechanism and Synthetic Applications2001In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 66, no 5, p. 1686-1693Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Various dialkyl-substituted allyl chloride derivatives (2d−i) undergo regioselective palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions with allylstannanes (1a,b) and benzylidenemalonitrile (4), providing functionalized 1,7-octadienes in good yield. The catalytic reaction proceeds through an unsymmetrical amphiphilic bis-allylpalladium intermediate. An introductory electrophilic attack on the terminal position of the unsubstituted allyl moiety is followed by a nucleophilic attack on the alkyl-substituted allyl ligand. A theoretical analysis was performed by applying density functional theory at the B3PW91/DZ+P level to study the substituent effects on the electrophilic attack. According to the theoretical results, the high regioselectivity can be ascribed to the electronic effects of the alkyl substituents: The terminal alkyl groups destabilize the η13-bis-allylpalladium intermediate of the reaction; in addition, the alkyl substitution increases the activation barrier for the electrophilic attack.

    An unexpectedly mild thermal alder-ene-type cyclization of enallenes2006In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, ISSN 0022-3263, Vol. 71, no 7, p. 2914-2917Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A mild, thermal Alder-ene reaction of enallenes has been developed. The allenic double bond acts as the "ene" and generates a carbon-carbon bond to an unactivated olefinic "enophile" in DMF at 120 degrees C to give [n.3.0] bicyclic systems (n = 3-5) in good yields. Except for a minor [2 + 2] cycloaddition byproduct, the reaction proceeded with complete atom economy, as there is no requirement of a catalyst or additional reactants, and no waste products are formed in the process.

    Abstract [en]

    A divergent synthesis of various 3,5-dioxygenated piperidines with interesting pharmacological properties is described. A mixture of the achiral cis- and racemic trans-3,5-piperidine diol could be efficiently obtained from N-benzylglycinate in five steps by the use of chemoenzymatic methods. In the subsequent enzyme- and Ru-catalyzed reaction, the rac/meso diol mixture was efficiently transformed to the cis-(3R,5S)-diacetate with excellent diastereoselectivity and in high yield. Further transformations of the cis-diacetate selectively delivered the cis-piperidine diol and the cis-(3R,5S)-hydroxy acetate. Alternatively, the DYKAT could be stopped at the monoacetate stage to give the trans-(3R,5R)-hydroxy acetate.

    A regio- and stereodivergent route to all isomers of vic-amino alcohols2002In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 67, no 24, p. 8574-8583Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Vicinal amino alcohols are substructures in several important natural products. They are also frequently employed ligands in asymmetric synthesis. Many enantioselective syntheses of vic-amino alcohols have been reported, but each structure has required its own synthetic route. This study presents a synthetic strategy leading to all eight possible isomers of a given beta-amino alcohol, starting from vinyl epoxides. The developed strategy focuses on the propensity of vinyl epoxides and vinylaziridines to be selectively ring-opened at the allylic position by suitable hard nucleophiles. Within this strategy, a novel large-scale aminolysis reaction and the synthesis of a trisubstituted N-H vinylaziridine are detailed.

    Divergent Synthesis of D-erythro-Sphingosine, L-threo-Sphingosine, and Their Regioisomers2003In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 68, no 6, p. 2514-2517Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Starting from a vinyl epoxide, a divergent synthesis of four sphingosine isomers is described. The remaining four isomers can easily be synthesized using the same methodol. Although numerous syntheses of sphingosine have been published, this is the first general route leading to all eight isomers in this important compd. class. The synthetic strategy relies on regioselective opening of a vinyl epoxide and a vinylaziridine in the allylic position.

    Palladium-Catalyzed Selective Acyloxylation Using Sodium Perborate as Oxidant2011In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 76, no 5, p. 1503-1506Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sodium perborate (SPB), a principal component of washing powders, was employed as an inexpensive and eco-friendly oxidant in the palladium-catalyzed C-H acyloxylation of alkenes in excellent regio- and stereochemistry. The reactions used anhydrides as acyloxy sources. The method applies to both terminal and internal alkenes, and even benzylic C-H oxidation.

    Pd-Catalyzed Substitution of the OH Group of Nonderivatized Allylic Alcohols by Phenols2018In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 83, no 7, p. 4099-4104Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nonactivated phenols have been employed as nucleophiles in the allylation of nonderivatized allylic alcohols to generate allylated phenolic ethers with water as the only byproduct. A Pd[BiPhePhos] catalyst was found to be reactive to give the O-allylated phenols in good to excellent yields in the presence of molecular sieves. The reactions are chemo-selective in which the kinetically favored O-allylated products are formed exclusively over the thermodynamically favored C-allylated products.

    Theoretical study of mechanism and selectivity of copper-catalyzedC−H bond amidation of indoles2011In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 76, no 22, p. 9246-9252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Density functional theory calculations are used to study the reaction mechanism and origins of C2 selectivity in a copper(I)-catalyzed amidation of indoles. It is shown that concerted metalation−deprotonation is not able to reproduce the observed regioselectivity. Instead, an unprecedented mechanism based on a four-center reductive elimination is proposed to be responsible for the reaction outcome. This mechanism has a lower reaction barrier and is able to reproduce the experimentally observed selectivity. A possible alternative mechanism involving a Cu(II) species instead of Cu(III) is presented, but it is shown that higher energy barriers are associated with this mechanism. An important technical detail is that addition of dispersion effects to the B3LYP results is necessary to reproduce the observed selectivity, although not important for the overall mechanistic proposal.

    Theoretical Study of Mechanism and Stereoselectivity of Catalytic Kinugasa Reaction2015In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 80, no 5, p. 2649-2660Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mechanism of the catalytic Kinugasa reaction is investigated by means of density functional theory calculations. Different possible mechanistic scenarios are presented using phenanthroline as a ligand, and it is shown that the most reasonable one in terms of energy barriers involves two copper ions. The reaction starts with the formation of a dicopper-acetylide that undergoes a stepwise cycloaddition with the nitrone, generating a five-membered ring intermediate. Protonation of the nitrogen of the metalated isoxazoline intermediate results in ring opening and the formation of a ketene intermediate. This then undergoes a copper-catalyzed cyclization by an intramolecular nucleophilic attack of the nitrogen on the ketene, affording a cyclic copper enolate. Catalyst release and tautomerization gives the final beta-lactamic product. A comprehensive study of the enantioselective reaction was also performed with a chiral bis(azaferrocene) ligand. In this case, two different reaction mechanisms, involving either the scenario with the two copper ions or a direct cycloaddition of the parent alkyne using one copper ion, were found to have quite similar barriers. Both mechanisms reproduced the experimental enantioselectivity, and the current calculations can therefore not distinguish between the two possibilities.

    Performance of SCS palladium pincer complexes in borylation of allylic alcohols. Control of the regioselectivity in the one-pot borylation-allylation process2009In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 74, no 15, p. 5695-5698Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One-pot borylation−allylation reactions of aldehydes and allylic alcohols were performed under various reaction conditions. The borylation of allylic alcohols was performed using a very efficient SCS palladium pincer-complex catalyst. The regioselectivity of the allylation depends on the applied solvent. The reaction in CHCl3 gave the linear allylic product; however, when MeOH was added to the reaction mixture, the branched allylic product was formed.

NMR and molecular modeling studies showed that the pentasaccharide (5) adopted a left-handed helical conformation. [GRAPHICS]

    Enantioselective synthesis of α-methyl carboxylic acids from readily available starting materials via chemoenzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution2010In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 75, no 20, p. 6842-6847Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An enantioselective method for the synthesis of α-methyl carboxylic acids starting from trans-cinnamaldehyde, a readily available and inexpensive compound, has been developed. Allylic alcohol 1 was obtained via a standard Grignard addition to trans-cinnamaldehyde. Dynamic kinetic resolution was applied to allylic alcohol 1 utilizing a ruthenium catalyst and either an (R)-selective lipase or an (S)-selective protease to provide the corresponding allylic esters in high yield and high ee. A copper-catalyzed allylic substitution was then applied to provide the corresponding alkenes with inversion of stereochemistry. Subsequent C−C double bond cleavage afforded pharmaceutically important α-methyl substituted carboxylic acids in high ee and overall yields of up to 76%.

In this protocol, the 8-aminoquinoline amides were first treated with Boc(2)O and DMAP to form the corresponding N-acyl-Boc-carbamates, which were found to be sufficiently reactive to undergo subsequent aminolysis with different amines in the absence of any additional reagents or catalysts. To demonstrate the utility of this approach, it was applied on a number of 8-aminoquinoline amides from the recent C-H functionalization literature, enabling access to a range of elaborate amide derivatives in good to high yields

    Synthesis of Densely Substituted Conjugated Dienes by Transition-Metal-Free Reductive Coupling of Allenylboronic Acids and Tosylhydrazones2018In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 83, no 15, p. 8786-8792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tosylhydrazones and allenylboronic acids underwent a transition-metal-free reductive coupling reaction. This process is suitable for synthesis of tetra- and pentasubstituted conjugated dienes. The corresponding allenyl-Bpin substrate showed a very poor reactivity. The reaction is suggested to involve coupling of the in situ formed diazo compound and allenylboronic acid. The intermediate formed in this coupling undergoes allenyl migration followed by protodeboronation to furnish a conjugated diene as major product.

    Abstract [en]

    A series of C,C-diacetylenic phosphaalkenes 1be has been prepared from 1-chloropenta-1,2-dien-4-ynes 6be in a reaction with Mes*PCl2 (Mes* = 2,4,6-(tBu)3Ph) in the presence of LDA. Under identical conditions, isomeric butadiyne-substituted phosphaalkenes 2cf can be obtained from 3-chloropenta-1,4-diynes 5cf. The title compounds represent rare examples of diethynylethenes in which a constituting methylene has been replaced by a phosphorus center. The formation of both isomers can be rationalized by a common pathway that involves isomeric allenyllithium species. Spectroscopic, electrochemical, and theoretical investigations show that the phosphorus heteroatoms are an intrinsic part of the compounds’ π−systems and lead to decreased HOMO−LUMO gaps compared to those in all-carbon-based reference compounds.
