Reaction of 2-benzyl-5-halopyridazin-3(2H)-ones (3) with Grignard reagents followed by quenching with electrophiles unexpectedly yielded 4,5-disubstituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones instead of 5-substituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones. These reactions represent the first examples of cine substitution in which the anionic σ(H)-adduct is quenched by electrophiles (other(More)
The potential of halogen-magnesium exchange reactions, followed by quenching with electrophiles, for the functionalization of the pyridazin-3(2H)-one core was investigated. 2-Benzyl-4-bromo-5-methoxy- (1), 2-benzyl-5-bromo-4-methoxy- (4), and 2-benzyl-4,5-dibromopyridazin-3(2H)-one (10) were selected as readily available model substrates. While 1 and 10(More)
A set of regioisomeric 2-substituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones containing a 3-oxo-3-phenylprop-1-en-1-yl fragment at either position 4, 5 or 6 and 2-substituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones containing the same fragment both at positions 4 and 5 have been synthesized and evaluated as antiplatelet agents. The study allows the identification of a new highly potent platelet(More)
Zincated pyridazin-3(2H)-ones generated via bromine-magnesium exchange followed by transmetalation using ZnCl(2) or via lactam-directed ortho C4-H zincation with TMPZnCl·LiCl have been synthesized. These in situ created organometallics can be used in Negishi reactions with iodo(hetero)arenes delivering a new approach toward (hetero)arylpyridazin-3(2H)-ones.
The kinetics of the oxidative additions of haloheteroarenes HetX (X=I, Br, Cl) to [Pd(0) (PPh3 )2 ] (generated from [Pd(0) (PPh3 )4 ]) have been investigated in THF and DMF and the rate constants have been determined. In contrast to the generally accepted concerted mechanism, Hammett plots obtained for substituted 2-halopyridines and solvent effects reveal(More)
Selective bromine-magnesium exchange on 2-benzyl-5-bromo-4-methoxypyridazin-3(2H)-one could be achieved when MesMgBr was used as reagent. With more nucleophilic RMgCl species (R = Bu, i-Pr, Ph) both nucleophilic addition-elimination at C-4 and bromine-magnesium exchange at C-5 occurred. In 2-benzyl-5-bromopyridazin-3(2H)-one, which does not contain a(More)
