Abstract

A new efficient ZnBr2-mediated annulative domino reaction between enamines and cyclic Morita–Baylis–Hillman (MBH) alcohols is disclosed. The process involves a tandem sequence (intermolecular conjugate addition of enamines to MBH alcohols and intramolecular nucleophilic addition of the hydroxyl moiety to the transiently generated iminium ion), affording the corresponding N,O-ketals diastereoselectively in good yields.

  • 29 Synthesis of N,O-Ketals 4a–l; General Procedure: Under nitrogen, a mixture of cyclic MBH alcohols 3 (1.5 mmol), and ZnBr2 (4.5 mmol, 1.013 g) was heated to reflux in CH2Cl2 (10 mL) for 15 min. Then a solution of enamine 2ac (7.5 mmol) in CH2Cl2 (5 mL) was added, and the reaction mixture was heated to reflux for 3–6 h. After the evaporation of CH2Cl2, water (10 mL) and aq NaOH (1 M, 30 mL) were added, and the mixture was extracted with CH2Cl2 (3 × 30 mL). The combined organic layers were washed with a saturated solution of ammonium chloride (10 mL) and dried over magnesium sulfate. After filtration and removal of solvent, the residue was subjected to column chromatography, eluting with petroleum ether/ether/acetone = 40:40:20, to produce the pure N,O-ketals 4al. 3a-Morpholinodecahydrocyclopenta[c]isochromen-6(2H)-one (4a): Yield: 90%; white solid; mp 146–148 °C. 1H NMR (CDCl3, 300 MHz): δ = 4.03 (t, J = 12 Hz, 1 H), 3.69 (t, J = 4.5 Hz, 4 H), 3.62 (dd, J = 6, 3 Hz, 1 H), 2.67–2.55 (m, 2 H), 2.42–227 (m, 5 H), 2.16–2.08 (m, 3 H), 1.81–1.69 (m, 4 H), 1.64–1.47 (m, 5 H). 13C NMR (CDCl3, 75 MHz): δ = 212.1, 97.1, 67.3, 58.7, 46.8, 45.8, 41.8, 40.9, 39.0, 29.7, 28.3, 26.5, 22.6, 19.8.
