Straightforward assembly of phenylimidazoquinoxalines via a one-pot two-step MCR process.
ABSTRACT: An efficient multicomponent-based methodology providing a new entry into a medicinally important complex heterocyclic core is presented. The strategy is very general and able to endow target compounds with the highest possible number of diversity points. Notably, four new chemical bonds and two aromatic rings are formed in a one-pot fashion.
Project description:A one-pot three-component tandem reaction involving a key Pictet-Spengler-like annulation step has been developed, providing an efficient method for the synthesis of 3,4-dihydroquinazolines in moderate to good yields from amides, aldehydes, and amines. The multicomponent triflic anhydride mediated reaction tolerates the installation of numerous functional groups, affording extensive diversity about the heterocyclic scaffold.
Project description:An operationally simple, one-pot, two-step cascade method has been developed to afford quinazolino[1,2,3]triazolo[1,4]benzodiazepines. This unique, atom-economical transformation engages five reactive centers (amide, aniline, carbonyl, azide, and alkyne) and employs environmentally benign iodine as a catalyst. The method proceeds via sequential quinazolinone-forming condensation and intramolecular azide-alkyne 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions. Substrate scope, multicomponent examples, and mechanistic insights are discussed.
Project description:Chemoenzymatic reaction cascades can provide access to chiral compounds from low-cost starting materials in one pot. Here we describe one-pot asymmetric routes to tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids (THIAs) using the Pictet-Spenglerase norcoclaurine synthase (NCS) followed by a cyclisation, to give alkaloids with two new heterocyclic rings. These reactions operated with a high atom economy to generate THIAs in high yields.
Project description:The use of an N-acyloxazolidinone-protected S-adamantanyl thiosialoside allows the highly stereoselective, one-pot multicomponent synthesis of alpha-sialoside-based oligosaccharides.
Project description:The construction of two libraries of triazole-containing isothiazolidine 1,1-dioxides is reported utilizing either a one-pot click/aza-Michael or click/OACC esterification protocol. One core dihydroisothiazole 1,1-dioxide scaffold was prepared rapidly on multigram scale via ring-closing metathesis (RCM) and was subjected to a one-pot multicomponent click/aza-Michael protocol with an array of amines and azides for the generation of a 180-member triazole-containing isothiazolidine 1,1-dioxide library. Alternatively, three daughter scaffolds were generated via the aza-Michael of three amino alcohols, followed by a one-pot, multicomponent click/esterification protocol utilizing a ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP)-derived coupling reagent, oligomeric alkyl carbodiimide (OACC) to generate a 41-member library of triazole-containing isothiazole 1,1-dioxides.
Project description:A novel multicomponent strategy for the efficient synthesis of tricyclic pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinolines has been described. The bond-forming efficiency, accessibility and generality of this synthesis make it highly attractive to assemble tri-heterocyclic scaffolds.
Project description:A highly efficient method for the enantioselective one-pot synthesis of 1,3-oxazolidines and 1,3-oxazinanes has been reported. The reaction proceeds via the formation of hemiaminal intermediates obtained by the enantioselective addition of respective alcohols to imines catalyzed by a chiral magnesium phosphate catalyst, followed by intramolecular cyclization under mildly basic conditions. A wide range of substrates have been converted to the respective chiral heterocyclic products in high yields and with excellent enantioselectivities using this one-pot procedure.
Project description:Multicomponent self-assembly in one pot provides an efficient way for constructing complex architectures using multiple types of building blocks with different levels of interactions orthogonally. The preparation of multiple types of building blocks typically includes tedious synthesis. Here, we developed a multicomponent synthesis/self-assembly strategy, which combined covalent interaction (C-N bond, formed through condensation of pyrylium salt with primary amine) and metal-ligand interaction (N ? Zn bond, formed through 2,2':6',2?-terpyridine-Zn coordination) in one pot. The high compatibility of this pair of interactions smoothly and efficiently converted three and four types of components into the desired complex structures, which are supramolecular Kandinsky Circles and spiderwebs, respectively.
Project description:Based on consecutive one-pot conditions combining three palladium-catalyzed reactions (Sonogashira, Heck and Suzuki-Miyaura reactions), a more efficient domino multicomponent method has been successfully developed to access a wide variety of 3-(diarylmethylene)oxindoles. Microwave irradiation and use of a silver salt were the most important factors to achieve high yields and stereoselectivity.
