Article: Copper-free palladium-catalyzed Sonogashira coupling-annulation: efficient one-pot synthesis of functionalized pyrano[4,3-b]quinolines from 2-chloro-3-formylquinolines.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A convenient, one-pot, copper-free, Pd-catalyzed methodology has been described for the synthesis of 1,3-disubstituted pyrano[4,3-b]quinolines from 2-chloro-3-formylquinolines. Formation of annulated products 3 is attributed to the presence of Pd(OAc)2 and PPh3. Further, PPh3 in the reaction mixture promotes the cyclization by reducing the reaction time and increasing the yield of cyclized product.The Journal of Organic Chemistry 07/2009; 74(15):5664-6. · 4.45 Impact Factor
Article: Copper-free Sonogashira coupling of 2-chloroquinolines with phenyl acetylene and quick annulation to benzo[b][1,6]naphthyridine derivatives in aqueous ammonia[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: An efficient copper-free Sonogashira coupling of 2-chloroquinolines with phenyl acetylene to 2-ethynylquinolines is described. We further discussed the one pot facile annulation of 2-alkynylquinoline-3-carboxaldehydes to 3-phenylbenzo[b][1,6]naphthyridines in aqueous ammonia in excellent yield.Graphical abstractTetrahedron. 64(51):11680-11685.
