Synthesis of Macrocyclic Lactones via Ring Transformation of 4-(w-Hydroxyalkyl)-1,3-oxazol-5(4H)-ones


Fritschi, Stephan P; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (2016). Synthesis of Macrocyclic Lactones via Ring Transformation of 4-(w-Hydroxyalkyl)-1,3-oxazol-5(4H)-ones. Helvetica Chimica Acta, 99(7):523-538.

Abstract

The synthesis of alpha-benzamido-alpha-benzyl lactones 23 of various ring size was achieved either via ‘direct amide cyclization’ by treatment of 2-benzamido-2-benzyl-omega-hydroxy-N,N-dimethylalkanamides 21 in toluene at 90 – 110° with HCl gas or by ‘ring transformation’ of 4-benzyl-4-(omega-hydroxyalkyl)-2-phenyl-1,3-oxazol-5(4H)-ones under the same conditions. The precursors were obtained by C-alkylations of 4-benzyl-2-phenyl-1,3-oxazol-5(4H)-one (15) with THP- or TBDMS-protected omega-hydroxyalkyl iodides. Ring opening of the THP-protected oxazolones by treatment with Me2NH followed by deprotection of the OH group gave the diamides 21, whereas deprotection of the TBDMS series of oxazolones 25 with TBAF followed by treatment with HCl gas led to the corresponding lactones 23 in a one-pot reaction.

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.
