A novel use of GaAs, namely, as a scaffold for a heterogeneous palladium catalyst, is proposed. Hydroxy groups on the GaAs surface play important roles. During the adsorption of Pd(OAc)(2) on the GaAs surface, the hydroxy groups attract Pd(ii) species by anion exchange. A subsequent redox reaction proceeds to generate Pd(0) nanoparticles, which are(More)
A new type of non-innocent β-diketiminate ligand having redox active phenol groups (LH(3), fully protonated form) has been developed, and the structure, physical properties and reactivity of the supported copper(II) complex [Cu(II)(L(3-))](-) (L(3-), fully deprotonated tri-anionic form) as well as the one-electron and two-electron oxidised complexes,(More)
3-Carbamoyl-2-isoxazolines, prepared by cycloaddition of functionalized nitrile oxide, serve as masked 3-unsubstituted isoxazolines to afford 2-isoxazoline-3-carboxylic acid, beta-cyanoalcohol, alpha,beta-unsaturated nitrile, and alpha,beta-unsaturated amide upon heating in the alkaline solution. The present reaction is also applicable to synthesis of(More)
A series of 5-acylated 3-cyanoisoxazoles were efficiently synthesized by the Michael addition of dianionic cyano-aci-nitroacetate to α-chloro-α,β-unsaturated ketones followed by intramolecular nucleophilic substitution of the nitronate ion intermediate. In this process, the dianionic reagent serves as the safe synthetic equivalent of the explosive(More)
A metal-free, mild and efficient method for the synthesis of 2-methylquinolines was successfully developed by condensation of anilines with vinyl ethers in the presence of catalytic amount of iodine. Modification of both pyridine and benzene moieties was easily achieved by changing only the vinyl ether and aniline. In this reaction, the iodine species was(More)
3,5-Dinitro-1,4-dihydropyridines (DNDHPs) are readily constructed by the acid-promoted self-condensation of β-formyl-β-nitroenamines. In the DNDHPs, one molecule of the nitroenamine serves as a C3N1 building block and the other serves as a C2 block. This synthetic method does not require any special reagents and conditions. When the reaction is conducted in(More)
4-Nitroisoxazolin-5(2H)-one (nitroisoxazolone) has multiple functionalities embedded as the partial structures that include a nitroalkene, an enamine, a lactone, a N-O bond, and an α, β-unsaturated carbonyl moiety. These structural features facilitate versatile chemical transformations that lead to polyfunctionalized heterocycles that are not easily(More)
A carbamoyl-substituted nitrile oxide was generated upon treatment of easily available 2-methyl-4-nitro-3-isoxazolin-5(2H)-one with THF (not dried); the reaction proceeded efficiently even in the absence of any special reagents and reaction conditions. The nitrile oxide caused 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with common aliphatic nitriles or electron-rich(More)
A new protocol for synthesizing different functionalized isoxazoles is provided. Carbamoylnitrile oxide generated from nitroisoxazolone underwent inverse electron-demand 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds in the presence of magnesium acetate that formed magnesium enolate in situ. Although electron-deficient trifluoroacetoacetate did not(More)
