Aziridine derivatives are synthesized from a variety of olefins using commercially available Chloramine-T as a nitrogen source in the presence of AgNO3. The method is applicable to a tandem cyclization of 1,6-dienes accompanied by an N1 unit incorporation to afford bicyclic pyrrolidine derivatives.

Sterically congested cis- and trans-1,3,4-selenadiazolines were isolated by one-pot reaction of pivalophenone hydrazones with diselenium dibromide, which suggested in situ formation of selenoketone and diazoalkane intermediates. Thermolysis of these compounds gave symmetrical olefins, whereas oxidation afforded the corresponding azines.

*Institute of Chemistry, Chemical Research Center, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, H-1025 Budpest II, Pusztaszeri ut 59-67, P.O. Box 17, Hungary


While performing Stobbe reactions of a succinic diester derivative (1) different routes were found leading to different indole derivatives (2-5) depending on the reaction conditions applied, thus widening the scope and limitation of this useful procedure. Simpler pyrrolidine (13) and piperidine derivatives (14, 15) were also achieved through application of the intramolecular Stobbe reaction.

*Institute of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Althanstraße 14, A-1090 Vienna, Austria


In the first step 3, 4-dihydrothieno[2,3-b]pyrazines (1, 2 and 4) were N-acylated by the acyl chlorides followed by a deacylation process mediated by triethylamine to give thieno[2,3-b]pyrazines . In a final rection the excess of the appropriate acyl chlorides react with the free hydroxy residue to afford compounds (15, 16 or 17).

Two novel polyacylated cyanidin glycosides were isolated from the purple-red flowers of Anemone coronaria ‘St. Brigid’ together with a known polyacylated cyanidin glycoside (Anemone Purple Anthocyanin 1). These novel pigments were identified as cyanidin 3-O-[2-O-(2-O-(trans-caffeoyl)-β-D-glucopyranosyl)-6-O-malonyl-β-D-galactopyranoside]-7-O-[6- O-(trans-caffeoyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside]-3’-O-β-D-glucuronopyranoside and its demalonyl derivative.

Novel [12+2] Cycloaddition of 2H-4,9-Methanocycloundeca[b]furan-2-ones with Enamines: Synthesis and Properties of 4,9-Methanocyclopentacycloundecenes and a Benzo-annulated Derivative

*Department of Chemistry, School of Science and Engineering, Waseda University, 3-4-1 Okubo, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 169-8555, Japan


Novel cycloaddition reactions of 2H-4,9-methanocycloundeca[b]furan-2-one and 3-chloro-substituted derivative with enamines underwent novel [12 + 2] cycloaddition reaction followed by decarboxylation and elimination of amine to give 4,9-methanocyclopentacycloundecene derivatives in modest yields. Upon treatment of DDQ, cyclohexane-annulated 5-chloro-4,9-methanocyclopentacyclo-undecene was dehydrogenated easily to give the first example of a benzo-annulated 4,9-methanocyclopentacycloundecene ring system. Chemical as well as spectroscopic properties of them were studied, and it was clarified that benzo-annulation causes an appreciable degree of bond alternation and reduced ring current.

Synthetic Utilities of N-Acylpyrazoles

Choji Kashima

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


Little attention had been paid to N-acylpyrazoles, because they are 20 times less reactive than the corresponding N-acylimidazoles. From this lower reactivity, N-acylpyrazoles seem to be sufficiently stable as the starting materials, and should be applied to the controlled reactions such as the chemo-, the regio- and the stereoselective reactions. In this review, the preparation of N-acylpyrazoles and their utilities for the organic syntheses are reviewed.
