Reaction of gamma-Hydroxy-N-[1-(dimethylcarbamoyl)ethyl]butanamides under the ‘Direct Amide Cyclization’ Conditions


Iliev, Boyan; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (2006). Reaction of gamma-Hydroxy-N-[1-(dimethylcarbamoyl)ethyl]butanamides under the ‘Direct Amide Cyclization’ Conditions. Helvetica Chimica Acta, 89(1):153-175.

Abstract

The preparation of the title compounds was achieved via the ‘azirine/oxazolone method’ starting from the corresponding gamma-hydroxy acids. Upon subjecting the gamma-hydroxy-N-[1-(dimethylcarbamoyl)-
ethyl]butanamides 4 to the so-called ‘direct amide cyclization’ (DAC) conditions, chlorinated acids 11 or imino lactones 12 were obtained as the sole products instead of the expected cyclodepsipeptides A or their cyclodimers (Scheme 4). Variation of the substituents in 4 did not affect the outcome of the reaction and a mechanism for the formation of both products from the intermediate oxazolone 13 has been proposed. Under the acidic conditions of the DAC, the imino lactones are formed as their HCl salts 12,
which, in polar solvents or on silica gel, reacted further to give the chlorinated acids 11. Stabilization of the imino lactones was achieved by increasing the substitution in the five-membered ring, and their structure, in the form of the hydrochlorides, was established independently by X-ray crystallography (Fig. 4). A derivative 15 of the imino lactone 12a was prepared by the reaction with the 2H-azirin-3-amine 10a; its structure was also established by an X-ray crystal-structure determination (Fig. 3). Furthermore, the structures of the omega-chloro acids 11a and 11b were determined by X-ray crystallography (Fig. 2).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
