Diorganotellurides efficiently catalyze the aerobic oxidation of organosilanes under photosensitized conditions to afford the corresponding silanols in excellent yield.
Bis(2,4,6-triisopropylphenyl) tellurone (Tip(2)TeO(2)) was prepared, fully characterized by spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic analyses, as well as theoretical calculations, and found to be an effective oxidizing agent that was capable of converting alcohols into carbonyl compounds under mild reaction conditions.
The characterization of the dynamics of conformational changes that accompany the ligand binding and dissociation reactions of myoglobin may provide insights into the events that control the physiological function of this oxygen storage protein. The cyanometmyoglobin system was chosen for this study because cyanide binds to the metmyoglobin state and… (More)
Diorganotellurides containing bulky aromatic substituents are found to catalyze the photooxidation of phosphite esters using aerobic oxygen as a terminal oxidant. A Hammett plot with substituted triaryl phosphites yielding rho = 2.88 agrees with a nucleophilic oxygen transfer from telluroxide to phosphite.
Photophysical and photochemical processes of 9-methyl- and 9-phenyl-9,10-dihydro-9-silaphenanthrene derivatives have been studied at room temperature and 77 K in comparison with the carbon analogue, 9,10-dihydrophenanthrene. These 9,10-dihydro-9-silaphenanthrene derivatives show smaller fluorescence quantum yield and remarkably larger Stokes shifts than… (More)
Photosensitized oxidation of tellurides carrying bulky aromatic substituents afforded the corresponding telluroxides which were found to react with simple alcohols to give the corresponding carbonyl compounds in excellent yields along with the starting tellurides.
Some reactions such as catalytic hydrogenation, Diels-Alder reaction, cyclopropanation, dihydroxylation, and Michael addition of a novel 3,4-didehydropyroglutamate derivative, in which the carboxylic group is protected as an ABO ester, are examined and found to take place in a stereospecific manner giving 3- and/or 4-substituted pyroglutamate derivatives… (More)
Aerobic oxidation of thiols is efficiently catalyzed by diaryl tellurides such as bis(4-methoxyphenyl) telluride under photosensitized conditions to give the corresponding disulfides in good to excellent yields. In this catalytic system, the tellurone oligomer, produced by the reaction of a telluride with singlet oxygen, is assumed to be the active species… (More)
Aerobic oxygenation of diaryl tellurides under photosensitized conditions is investigated. Unlike Ph(2)S and Ph(2)Se, reaction of diaryl tellurides with singlet oxygen proceeds smoothly to yield diaryl telluroxides and the corresponding tellurones. The product distribution is largely affected by the substrate and the reaction conditions. In particular, the… (More)
