Electron-rich alkoxy- and chloro-substituted azaspirocyclic cyclohexadienyl Ru(II) complexes have been converted to either azaspiro[4.5]decane derivatives or functionalized tetrahydroisoquinolines by treatment with suitable oxidizing agents. Copper(II) chloride was found to provide demetalated products in high yield relative to the other oxidants examined (FeCl(3), DDQ, CAN, [Cp(2)Fe][PF(6)], phenyliodine diacetate, IBX). In certain instances, the efficiency of oxidative demetalation was… Expand

Metal-mediated dearomatization leading to 2-azaspiro[4.5]decanes via tandem nucleophilic aromatic addition–Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons olefination–oxidative demetalation sequences
Abstract A ruthenium-mediated dearomatization sequence has been developed that delivers structurally intriguing azaspirolactam products in stereoselective fashion. Treatment of (η 6Expand
Relative stability of half-sandwich η6-benzene Ru(II) complexes of tridentate (2-pyridyl)alkylamine ligands of varying chelate ring-size: Nucleophilic addition of hydride ion onto the benzene ring
A full account of half-sandwich complexes of ruthenium(II) having three-legged “piano-stool” geometry supported by tridentate (2-pyridyl)alkylamine ligands is presented. Reaction of the dimer [{(η 6Expand
Acceptor-substituted ferrocenium salts as strong, single-electron oxidants: synthesis, electrochemistry, theoretical investigations, and initial synthetic application.
An initial application of selected derivatives in an oxidative bicyclization revealed that they mediate the transformation under considerably milder conditions than ferrocenium hexafluorophosphate. Expand
C–H Activation of π-Arene Ruthenium Complexes
We present a C–H activation protocol for aromatic compounds that overcomes the current limitations of the need for a directing group or covalently bound activating groups, by exploiting the increaseExpand
Polysubstituted ferrocenes as tunable redox mediators
Paramagnetic 1H NMR redox titration experiments give access to the chemical shifts of 1+–4+ and underline the fast electron self-exchange of the ferrocene/ferrocenium redox couples, required for rapid redox mediation in organic electrosynthesis. Expand
Synthesis of 1-substituted 2-azaspiro[4.5]deca-6,9-diene-8-ones and 2-azaspiro[4.5]deca-1,6,9-triene-8-ones by a three-component condensation of 1,2,3-, 1,2,4- or 1,3,5-trimethoxybenzene with isobutyric aldehyde and nitriles
A three-component condensation of 1,2,3- or 1,2,4-trimethoxybenzene with isobutyric aldehyde and alkyl cyanoacetates in the presence of sulfuric acid resulted in the formation of substitutedExpand
Catalytic SNAr of unactivated aryl chlorides.
From the spectroscopic evidence, it is inferred that arene exchange is the rate limiting step in this process and several new Ru(ii) complexes are developed that lower the activation barrier to arenes exchange. Expand
