Photochemical Synthesis of 2-Phenylpyrroles by the Cyclization of β-Aminovinyl Ketones

Takehiko Nishio and Yoshimori Omote*

*Department of Chemistry, University of Tsukuba, 1-1-1 Ten-nodai, Tsukuba-shi, Ibaraki, 305-8571, Japan


On irradiation, β-aminovinyl phenyl ketones (1) having such substituents as CH3, OCH3, and Cl on the phenyl ring cyclize to give pyrrole derivatives (2), except β-aminovinyl ρ-biphenyl ketone (1h). Also exocyclic β-aminovinyl ketone (3 and 4) are inert. The photochemical behavior of (1) is discussed in relation with that of aryl alkyl ketone.

The Structure of Alkylation Products of 2-Substituted 3-Methylbenzolines with Meerwein Reagents

kin-ya Akiba,* Yoshio Ohara, and Naoki Inamoto

*Department of Chemistry, Scool of Science, University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-0033


Methylation and ethylation of 2-substituted 3-methylbenzothiazolines with Meerwein reagents gave the corresponding ammonium fluoroborates. The configuration of two methyl groups on nitrogen was assigned, i. e., one at lower field (in NMR) is syn to 2-C-H and the other at higher field is syn to 2-C-R.

Picrohelein, a New Cytotoxic and Bitter Pseudoguaianolide from Sendai Helenium autumnale L

Yoshikazu Kondo,* Tsuyoshi Tomimori, Norio Hiraga, and Tsunematsu Takemoto

*Pharmaceutical Institute, Tohoku University, Aobayama, Sendai 980-8578, Japan


Picrohelenin, a cytotoxic and intensely bitter pseudoguaianolide from the epigeal parts of Sendai Helenium autunnale L. (Compositae) has been established to be the structure I. The taste threshold of picrohelenin in man is 1.92 x 10-7 - 3.7 x 10-7 M. Picrohelenin proved to be inhibitory to tissue culture HeLa cells and its ID50 was 1.5 μg/ml.

Oxidative Cyclization of 6-(N-Alkylanilino)-5-aminouracils to Flavins with Diethyl Azodicarboxylate or Nitrosobenzene

Fumio Yoneda* and Yoshiharu Sakuma

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kumamoto University, 5-1 Oe-hon-machi, Kumamoto 862-0973, Japan


Treatment of 6-(N-alkylanilino)-5-aminouracils with diethyl azodicarboxylate or nitrosobenzene in ethanol or acetic acid in the indirect sunshine gave the correspond- ing flavins. The reaction mechanism has been definitely shown by the isolation of the key intermediates, 6-(N-alkylanilino)-5-iminouracils.

A Facile Formation of Benzo[a]quinolizin-4-ones

Tetsuji Kametani,* Hirofumi Terasawa, Masataka Ihara, and Keiichiro Fukumoto

*Pharmaceutical Institute, Tohoku University, Aobayama, Sendai 980-8578, Japan


Reaction of 3,4-dihydro-6,7-dimethoxy-1-methylisoquinoline (1) with diethyl α,γ-diethoxycarbonylglutaconate (2) in ethanol, followed by silica gel chromatography, gave 3-ethoxycarbonyl-6,7-dihydro-9,10-dimethoxybenzo[a]quinolizin-4-one (4). On the other hand, the above same reaction, followed by reduction with sodium borohydride, yielded 3-ethoxycarbonyl-2-diethoxycarbonylmethyl-1,2,3,6,7,11b-hexahydro-9,10-dimethoxybenzo[a]quinolizin-4-one (7). Hydrolysis of 4 and 7 with ethanolic potassium hydroxide furnished the same acid (6).
