(Canadian Journal of Chemistry, 2018)The synthesis of symmetric α-free meso-H-dipyrrin hydrobromides from 5-H-2-formyl pyrroles was investigated. The self-condensation produces regioisomeric dipyrrins through the adoption of two mechanistic pathways. The key ...
(Synlett, 2014)The reaction of 2-formyl pyrroles in acidic methanol gives the corresponding symmetric, meso-H 4,6-dipyrrin hydrobromides. This convenient strategy involves initial deformylation under the acidic conditions, followed by ...
The Use of Tin (IV) Chloride to Selectively Cleave Benzyl Esters over Benzyl Ethers and Benzyl Amines (Canadian Journal of Chemistry, 2014)Benzyl esters are cleaved upon reaction with SnCl4, resulting in isolation of the corresponding carboxylic acid. Importantly, benzyl ethers, amines and amides do not undergo debenzylation under these conditions, nor do a ...
(RSC Advances, 2013)Tripyrrolic prodigiosenes, derivatives of the natural product prodigiosin, have been produced via multi-step synthesis beginning with 2-formyl pyrroles bearing various functionalities at the 4-position. Two tin complexes ...
