Applications[ edit ] Amine oxides are surfactants commonly used in consumer products such as shampoos, conditioners, detergents, and hard surface cleaners. Properties[ edit ] Amine oxides are used as protecting group for amines and as chemical intermediates. Long-chain alkyl amine oxides are used as amphoteric surfactants and foam stabilizers. Amine oxides are highly polar molecules and have a polarity close to that of quaternary ammonium salts.
Abstract The properties and reactivities of transition metal complexes are rooted in the stereoelectronic properties of their ligands. While the bulk of a ligand can be easily evaluated and compared by the drawing of its Lewis structure, prediction on the electronic contributions is often less straightforward.
Thus, several electronic parameters have been developed for the experimental evaluation of ligands throughout the years. This article accounts for the most recent one developed by the Huynh group, which employs 13C NMR spectroscopy to determine ligand donor strengths using N-heterocyclic carbene complexes.
This parameter not only proves to be safer, more convenient and accurate in comparison to existing methodologies, but it also provides, in certain cases, more intuitive and reliable results. Furthermore, it is currently the only one that allows the direct comparison of various Werner-type and organometallic ligands on a unified scale.
In water, all complexes were found to be reduced in situ to form ruthenium nanoparticles RuNPs with a high hydrogenation activity. In organic solvents, complexes with monodentate NHC ligands also formed nanoparticles, while complexes with bidentate ligands gave rise to stable homogeneous catalysts with moderate hydrogenation activities.
Upon photolysis of a tetrazole, the highly reactive nitrile imine formed undergoes rapid nucleophilic reaction with a variety of nucleophiles present in a biological system, along with the expected cycloaddition with alkenes.
The alternative use of the tetrazole photoclick reaction was thus explored: Further introduction of these photo-activatable, fluorogenic moieties into staurosporine resulted in the corresponding probes capable of photoinduced, no-wash imaging of endogenous kinase activities in live mammalian cells.
Syntheses and Alkyne Annulations" Org. All complexes have been fully characterized, and the molecular structures of four complexes are reported. The rotational barrier of the N-benzyl substituent in the bromido complex 9b has been measured by variable temperature 1H NMR spectroscopy.
Preliminary reactivity studies of complex 12 with alkynes provided four new annulated aza-heterocyclic thiophenes. Complex 1 bearing the 1,3-dibenzylbenzimidazolinylidene ligand is able to selectively catalyze both dehydrogenative amidation, mono- and di-amination N-alkylation through coupling of simple alcohols with amines effectively yielding a range of amides, secondary and tertiary amines.
Selectivity is achieved by controlling the fate of the common hemiaminal intermediate, which in turn can be simply influenced by the choice of base and solvent. In both cases, the NHCs in question were exceptionally strong donors. To probe the dependence of ligand redistribution processes on NHC donor strength, a model study was conducted using a weakly donating 1,2,4-triazolinylidene tazy ligand and different halido coligands.
These complexes were found to be efficient catalysts for the alkylation of amines using alcohols as alkylating agents. The practical utility of these catalysts was demonstrated for the synthesis of pharmaceutically important amines in a more environmentally benign way under solventless conditions.
The digold I complex acts as a metallo-bis pincer ligand to furnish the first example of an organometallic NHC-helicate upon coordination to cobalt. Syntheses and Catalytic Activities" Organometallics,33, — In most cases, the N-methyl-benzimidazolinylidene moiety was kept as one NHC donor, while the other one varies with different heterocyclic backbones.
As an exception, the hetero-diNHC in complex 8 is derived by combining 1,2,4-triazole and indazole precursors instead. A systematic catalytic comparison of 9—17 in the direct arylation of pentafluorobenzene with 4-chlorobromobenzene was carried out, and complexes that contain bulkier and less electron-donating ligands were found to be more active.
Complex 12 carrying the mesitylimidazolinylidene unit proved to be the most efficient, and its activity was also tested in the direct arylation of tetrafluorobenzenes.
The influence of the 15 bidentate ligands L2 on the 13Ccarbene signals of the iPr2-bimy reporter ligand in the chelate complexes was studied, on the basis of which a facile methodology for the donor strength determination of bidentate ligands was developed. All complexes were obtained as inseparable mixtures of trans-syn and trans-anti rotamers, as evidenced by NMR spectroscopy.
For one of the complexes, X-ray diffraction confirmed the square-planar coordination geometry. The catalytic activity of all complexes for Suzuki—Miyaura cross-coupling was examined.
Under the optimized conditions, both aryl bromides and aryl chlorides were successfully coupled in the presence of triphenylphosphine as additive. Yields ranged from good to moderate for electron-deficient aryl halides, while electron-rich aryl halides were found to be unreactive.
This approach allows for a synthesis of functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene complexes more efficient than the metalation of prefunctionalized azolium salts.Nucleophilic substitution takes place preferentially at the 2- and 4- positions as the intermediate anion is stabilised by the electronegative nitrogen.
Back to Aromatic Heterocycles B. Hamper and E. Tesfu, Synlett, , , – Shortly thereafter, it was found that also activation of 2-alkyl pyridine N-oxides 3 either with Ac 2 O 3 or with other promoters, such as TFAA 4 and tosyl chloride 5 give access to 1-(2-pyridinyl)-alkyl alcohol derivatives 5.
