Selenium-containing heterocycles from isoselenocyanates: synthesis of 1,3-selenazoles from N-phenylimidoyl isoselenocyanates


Zhou, Yuehui; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (2000). Selenium-containing heterocycles from isoselenocyanates: synthesis of 1,3-selenazoles from N-phenylimidoyl isoselenocyanates. Helvetica Chimica Acta, 83:1576-1598.

Abstract

The reaction of N-phenylbenzamides 5 with excess SOCl2 under reflux gave N-phenylbenzimidoyl chlorides 6, which, on treatment with KSeCN in acetone, yielded imidoyl isoselenocyanates of type 2. These products, obtained in almost quantitative yield, were stable in the crystalline state. They were transformed into selenourea derivatives 7 by the reaction with NH3, or primary or secondary amines. In acetone at room temperature, 7 reacted with activated bromomethylene compounds such as 2-bromoacetates, acetamides, and acetonitriles, as well as phenacyl bromides and 4-cyanobenzyl bromide to give 1,3-selenazol-2-amines of type 9 (Scheme 2). A reaction mechanism via alkylation of the Se-atom of 7, followed by ring closure and elimination of aniline, is most likely (cf. Scheme 7). In the case of selenourea derivatives 7d and 7l with an unsubstituted NH2 group, an alternative ring closure via elimination of H2O led to 1,3-selenazoles 10a and 10b, respectively (Schemes 4 and 7). On treatment with NaOH, ethyl 1,3-selenazole-5-carboxylates 9l and 9s were saponified and decarboxylated to give the corresponding 5-unsubstituted 1,3-selenazoles 12a and 12b (Scheme 6). The molecular structures of selenourea 7f and the 1,3-selenazoles 9c and 9d have been established by X-ray crystallography (Figs. 1 and 3).

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.
