A series of novel spiropyrrolidines and spirothiapyrrolizidines were synthesized via a three-component 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of isatin or acenaphthenequinone, sarcosine or thiaproline and 4-hydroxy-6-methyl-3-((E)-3-phenylacryloyl)-2H-pyran-2-ones in refluxing ethanol. Advantages of this method include the availability of starting materials,(More)
A convenient and efficient method for the synthesis of novel dispiropyrrolidine bisoxindole derivatives by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of azomethine ylides has been developed. The synthesis was achieved by using a one-pot multicomponent procedure. The features of this procedure were characterized by the following: mild reaction conditions, high(More)
A series of new naphtho[1,2-e][1,3]oxazine derivatives such as trans-1,3-diaryl-1H-naphtho[1,2-e][1,3]oxazine-2(3H)-carbonyl chloride, 1-aryl-2-benzyl-1,2- dihydronaphtho[1,2-e][1,3]oxazine-3-one, and trans-1,3-diaryl-1H-naphtho[1,2-e] [1,3]oxazine-2(3H)-carbaldehyde were selectively synthesized via a chemoselective reaction of(More)
1,2,3,5-Tetrasubstituted and 1,2,3,4,5-pentasubstituted pyrroles may be synthesized through three-component reaction of 1,3-diketones, aldehydes, and amines induced by low-valent titanium reagent. High regioselectivity was achieved. Compared with the classical synthetic method, this new method has the advantages of short reaction time (15 min), high yields,(More)
A mild and efficient synthesis of pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridine-6(7H)-one derivatives via a three-component reaction of an aldehyde, Meldrum's acid and 3-methyl-1H-pyrazol-5-amine using recyclable polyethylene glycol (PEG)-400 as a reaction medium is described. This method has the advantages of accessible starting materials, good yields, mild reaction conditions(More)
A mild, efficient, one-pot protocol for the synthesis of indazole-3(2H)-ones via cyclization of nitro-aryl substrates through low-valent titanium reagent has been described. The method used Triethylamine (TEA) to control pH. Particularly, 2-aminobenzonitriles were synthesized by one step easily. The mechanistic course of the reaction suggests the(More)
The synthesis of a series of biquinazoline-2,2'-diones starting from o-nitrobenzaldehydes, anilines, and triphosgene is presented. This general approach features a novel and easy way for access to the target products. The mechanistic course of the reaction suggests the involvement of reduction, coupling, and cyclization by one-pot. These compounds were also(More)
The synthesis of a series of quinazolinone derivatives such as 2-thioxoquinazolinones, imidazo[1,2-c]quinazolin-5-amines, and benzimidazo[1,2-c]quinazolin-5-amines, starting from nitro-compounds has been described. This general approach features a easy way for access to the target quinazolinone derivatives. The key cyclization step embraces the formation of(More)
A series of 5-arylisoxazole derivatives were synthesized via the reaction of 3-(dimethyl-amino)-1-arylprop-2-en-1-ones with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in aqueous media without using any catalyst. This method has the advantages of easier work-up, mild reaction conditions, high yields, and an environmentally benign procedure.
An efficient, convenient, one-pot synthesis of 2,3,3a,4-tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]quinazolin-5(1H)-one and 2,3,3a,4-tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]quinazoline-1,5-dione was accomplished in good yields via the novel reductive cyclization of 2-nitrobenzamides with haloketones or keto acids mediated by SnCl(2).2H(2)O system. A variety of substrates can participate in(More)
