The Knoevenagel condensation of 1,3-dihydro-2H-indol-2-one with ferrocene carboxaldehyde afforded an approximate 2:1 mixture of the geometrical isomers (E)- and (Z)-3-ferrocenylmethylidene-1,3-dihydro-2H-indol-2-one respectively in an overall 67% yield; the air and solution-stable isomers were readily separated by preparative thin layer chromatography and(More)
Room temperature iodocyclisation of homoallylamines stereoselectively delivers functionalised 2-(iodomethyl)azetidine derivatives in high yield. Increasing reaction temperature from 20 °C to 50 °C switches the reaction outcome to realise the stereoselective formation of functionalised 3-iodopyrrolidine derivatives. It was shown that these pyrrolidines are(More)
A chiral ferrocene-based boronic acid interacts with (R)- and (S)-Binol to form two complexes that exhibit significantly different ferrocene-based electrode potentials. This difference in redox behavior can be exploited to demonstrate in principle how high levels of enantiomeric excess in a mixture of enantiomers can be quantified and read-out using an(More)
Three peri-substituted trisulfide-2-oxides are prepared by treatment of 1,8-naphthalene dithiols with thionyl chloride and pyridine. The 1,2,3-trithiane-2-oxide ring adopts a sofa conformation in the solid state, with a pseudoaxial oxygen and evidence of ring strain (peri-interaction). Heating the trisulfide-2-oxides in the presence of a diene results in(More)
The reaction between 2-thiobarbituric acid (H(2)TBA), which was treated with an equimolar amount of potassium hydroxide, in a water with triphenytin chloride in methanol, results in the formation of the {[Ph(3)Sn(O-HTBA)]}(n) (1) complex. Crystals of the hydrated 1 with formula {[Ph(3)Sn(O-HTBA)]·0.7(H(2)O)}(n) were growth from methanol/acetonitrile(More)
The reactions of tetrachloroauric(III) acid (HAuCl4) with the thioamides; 2-mercapto-benzothiazole (mbztH) and 5-ethoxy-2-mercapto-benzimidazole (EtmbzimH) lead to the desulfuration of the ligands and the formation of the ionic complexes {[AuCl4]- [bztH2]+} (1), and {[AuCl4]- [EtbzimH2]+ (H2O)} (2) (where bztH2+ and EtbzimH2+ are the desulfurated cations of(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the silver(I) chloride complex of formula {[AgCI(CMBZT)(TPTP)(2)] . (MeOH)} (1) (CMBZT = 5-chloro-2-mercaptobenzothiazole, TPTP = tris(p-tolyl)phosphine) is described. Also the structure of the hydrate derivative {[AgCI(TPTP)(3)] . (0.5 . H(2)O)} (2) of the corresponding known anhydrous silver complex (Zartilas et al.,(More)
A series of arylboronates has been synthesized from the reaction of 2-(2-, (3-, or (4-(bromomethyl)phenyl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolane 1{1-3} respectively with a range of N-, S-, and O-nucleophiles, using microwave-mediated chemistry. For the synthesis of N- and S-substituted boronates, a supported base, PS-NMM, was employed, and many reactions(More)
