A palladium-catalyzed tandem reaction of 2-(cyanomethyl)benzonitriles or 2-(2-carbonylphenyl)acetonitriles with arylboronic acids in water has been developed for the first time. This reaction features good functional group tolerance and provides a new strategy for the synthesis of diverse isoquinolines under mild conditions. The use of water as the reaction medium makes the synthesis process environmentally benign. Preliminary mechanistic experiments indicate that the major reaction pathway involves carbopalladation of the C(sp3)–cyano group and subsequent intramolecular cyclization findings that were further supported by density functional theory (DFT) calculations.

ABSTRACT

Thiele’s acid has been resolved for the first time by diastereomeric salt formation with brucine. Determination of absolute stereochemistry was accomplished by X-ray crystallography of the corresponding diester. We anticipate that access to optically resolved Thiele’s acid will stimulate its use in a diverse range of applications requiring chiral molecular clefts.

A chiral derivative of 1,2-benzenedisulfonimide, namely (−)-4,5-dimethyl-3,6-bis(o-tolyl)-1,2-benzenedisulfonimide is herein proven to be an efficient chiral catalyst in a one pot three-component Biginelli reaction. In fact the yields of the target dihydropyrimidines were very high (25 examples; average 91%) and enantiomeric excesses were always excellent (14 examples; average 97%). Ultimately, we herein propose a procedure that displays a number of benefits and advantages including the total absence of solvents, mild reaction conditions, relatively short reaction times and stoichiometric reagent ratios. Target dihydropyrimidines are obtained in adequate purity, making further chromatographic purification unnecessary. Moreover, the chiral catalyst was easily recovered from the reaction mixture and reused, without the loss of catalytic activity.
