Ruthenium-catalyzed ROM-RCM of Cyclopentene-yne. Concise Synthesis of a Pyrrolizidine Derivative

Hideaki Wakamatsu, Yoshihiro Sato, Reiko Fujita,* and Miwako Mori*

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Hokkaido University, Kita 12 Nishi 6, Kita-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido 060-0812, Japan


ROM-RCM (Ring-Opening Metathesis and Ring-Closing Metathesis) of cyclopentene-yne having an ester moiety was demonstrated using first- and second-generation Grubbs’ catalysts. When the reaction of cycloalkene-yne was carried out in the presence of 5 mol % of a ruthenium carbene complex under ethylene atmosphere at room temperature, ROM-RCM proceeded smoothly to give a pyrrolidine derivative in good yield, which could be converted to a pyrrolizidine derivative.

Rhodium-catalyzed Cycloisomerization of Allyl Propargyl Ethers: An Efficient Synthesis of 3,4-Disubstituted Furans

Hiroshi Kawai, Shuichi Oi,* and Yoshio Inoue*

*Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University, Aramaki, Aoba-ku, Sendai 980-8578, Japan


Cycloisomerization of allyl propargyl ethers was found to be catalyzed by a cationic rhodium complex to give 3,4-disubstituted furans in one step. Addition of carboxylic acids to the reaction improved the yield of the products. Generation of a rhodium hydride species from a rhodium complex with the carboxylic acids followed by hydrorhodation of the substrate with the rhodium hydride species would be involved in the reaction pathway.

Synthesis of Substituted Pyrimidine Hydrazine Acids (PHA) and Their Use in Peptide Recognition

Stefan Miltschitzky, Veronika Michlova, Stefan Stadlbauer, and Burkhard Koenig*

*Institut für Organische Chemie, Universität Regensburg, Universitätsstraße 31, D-93051, Regensburg, Germany


Substituted pyrimidine-hydrazine-acids (PHA) were prepared from orotic acid in five synthetic steps and high yields. Their geometry of hydrogen bond acceptor and donor sites make them suitable for the molecular recognition of peptide β-sheets. In non-protic solvents the PHA unit emits at around 420 nm after irradiation at 281 nm. The emission intensity decreases upon peptide binding and signals the binding event. Peptides consisting of PHAs and natural amino acids or a turn structure motif were prepared. The investigation of the intramolecular binding pattern by NMR spectroscopy revealed the expected interaction of the PHA and peptide β-sheet.

A parallel method for the synthesis of the title compounds is described. Thus, methyl anthranilates (5) are transformed into 2-aminobenzohydrazides (3) which were treated with 4-oxo acids (4) to afford in high yields and acceptable purity of piridazino[3,2-b]quinazolines (1). Compounds (1) present four diversity centers (R1, R2, R3, and R4). The range of chemically acceptable substituents at each center has been evaluated. The isolation of a possible intermediate in the formation of 1, which presents an aminol structure (10), has allowed proposing a complete mechanistic rationalization for the formation of structures (1).

*Biotechnology Research Center, Toyama Prefectural University, 5180 Kurokawa, Kosugi, Toyama 939-0398, Japan


Synthesis of galloyl-substituted procyanidin B4 series, 3-O-gallate, 3”-O-gallate and 3,3”-di-O-gallate, is described. Condensation of the electrophile derived from (+)-catechin with the nucleophile derived from (-)-epicatechin in the presence of TMSOTf as a catalyst gave procyanidin B4 3-O-gallate and 3,3”-di-O-gallate in good yields. Procyanidin B4 3”-O-gallate and procyanidin B3 3”-O-gallate were synthesized by the DCC method. Their DPPH radical scavenging activity and DNA polymerase inhibitory activity were also investigated. The results indicated that the presence of the galloyl moiety of these compounds is very important for both activities.

Synthesis of 4H-3,1-Benzoxazines by the Reaction of o-(N-Acylamino)benzyl Alcohols with DAST

Takehiko Nishio,* Yukiko Kurokawa, Yoshiya Narasaki, and Tatsuhiro Tokunaga

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


The treatment of o-(N-acylamino)benzyl alcohols (1) with DAST afforded the dehydrative cyclization product, 4H-3,1-benzoxazines (4) and the hydroxy replacement product, o-(N-acylamino)benzyl fluorides (5). The yields of benzoxazines (4) and fluorides (5) depend on the substituents at α-position and acyl groups. The treatment of α,α-diaryl-o-(N-acylamino)benzyl alcohols (1a-c) with DAST yielded benzoxazines (4a-c) exclusively, while that of α-monosubstituted o-(N-acylamino)benzyl alcohols (1d-k) with DAST yielded benzoxazines (4d-k) and fluorides (5d-k). In the reaction of o-(N-acylamino)benzyl alcohol (1l) with DAST, the formation of fluoride (5l) became predominant and that of benzoxazine (4l) was suppressed almost completely.

*Department of Chemistry, Nara University of Education, Takabatake-cho, Nara 630-8528, Japan


Lewis acid-catalyzed cyclization of various 2-(N-arylcarbamoyl)-methylenemalonates to give nitrogen-containing benzo-annelated heterocycles was investigated in terms of selectivity. Reaction of substrates with various alkyl groups on nitrogen proceeded to give oxindole derivatives. Cyclization reaction of diester-amides of MeO and halogen-substituted anilines in the presence of catalytic Lewis acid (ZnCl2, SnCl4, AlCl3, Zn(OTf)2, Sc(OTf)3, etc.) gave oxindoles in high yields. Interesting regioselectivity was observed for meta-halogen substrates. Dimethoxyisoquinoline analogs were also obtained by this reaction using a catalytic Lewis acid.

The double bond in ring D of (+)-9,10-didehydro-6-methylergolin-8-one (2) was reduced selectively by catalytic hydrogenation to yield (-)-6-methylergolin-8-one (6). Grignard reaction of 6 has been performed with methylmagnesium iodide to afford two isomers (5 and 7). The main isomer having an 8α-methyl group at C8 with a C/D-trans junction (5; (-)-dihydro-isosetoclavine) proved to be identical with the natural product, hence its name and structure should be corrected. As a minor isomer (7) a C/D-cis clavine derivative was also isolated which can be regarded as unnatural (+)-8α-hydroxy-costaclavine. (+)-Setoclavine (8) and (+)-isosetoclavine (9) have also been prepared from 2, thus achieving the first total synthesis of these natural products. Detailed structure elucidation of 5-9 has been carried out as well.

Novel vitamin D receptor (VDR) antagonists, 1α-hydroxy-24-phenylvitamin D3-26,23-lactones were synthesized by Trost’s methodology. The biological evaluation revealed that both the binding affinity for VDR and antagonistic activity were affected by the orientation of the phenyl group on the lactone ring. The modification of the 2α-position of the 24-phenylvitamin D3 lactones improved the antagonistic activity up to 41 times higher than that of TEI-9647.
