These acylamides underwent rapid microwave-assited cyclization to 2,4-disubstituted quinazolines (and benzoquinazolines) in the presence of ammonium formate. Please check your email for instructions on resetting your password. Tetrahedron. J Org Chem. It involves migration of an acyl group of phenol ester to the aryl ring.

Because the yields are low this procedure is not used in commercial production. In order to avoid the use of these corrosive and environmentally unfriendly catalysts altogether research into alternative heterogeneous catalysts is actively pursued. The Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS) is thanked for supporting this work. Evidence for inter- and intramolecular mechanisms have been obtained by crossover experiments with mixed reactants. Fries Rearrangement of Anilides in the Presence of Phosphorus Pentoxide in Methanesulfonic Acid Babak Kaboudin Department of Chemistry, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences, Gava Zang, Zanjan, Iran & Yaghoub Abedi Department of Chemistry, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences, Gava Zang, Zanjan, Iran Pages 229-236 By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. This reaction is affected by electronic nature of substrate as well as the reaction environment and no apparent isotopic effect has been observed. Dedicated to Professor Hashem Sharghi on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The Lewis acid–promoted rearrangement of phenolic esters to ortho‐ and/or para‐acyl phenols is generally known as the Fries rearrangement. This interaction polarizes the bond between the acyl residue and the phenolic oxygen atom and the aluminium chloride group rearranges to the phenolic oxygen atom. The Fries rearrangement, named for the German chemist Karl Theophil Fries, is a rearrangement reaction of a phenolic ester to a hydroxy aryl ketone by catalysis of Lewis acids.[1][2][3][4]. It is found that arylsulfonates also undergo a similar rearrangement to afford hydroxyaryl sulfones, and such rearrangement is known as the thia‐Fries rearrangement. 1991-07-23 00:00:00 ChemInform is a weekly Abstracting Service, delivering concise information at a glance that was extracted from about 100 leading journals. Mechanism of the Fries Rearrangement. 5 Howick Place | London | SW1P 1WG. Methodology and Application to Acridone and Pyranoacridone Alkaloids, A Novel Method for the Separation of Bis(?

Different anilides derived from carboxylic acids and substituted anilines have been submitted to the photochemically induced Fries rearrangement giving the corresponding o-amino phenones under conditions that are compatible with the presence of acid-labile groups (such as N-Boc or TBDMSO) on R 1 and R 3.

In this case, photolysis of the ester groups would lead to leaching of phthalate from the plastic. HHS Deactivating meta-directing groups on the benzene group will also have an adverse effect as can be expected for a Friedel–Crafts acylation. Indole synthesis: a review and proposed classification. Lu BZ, Wei HX, Zhang Y, Zhao W, Dufour M, Li G, Farina V, Senanayake CH. The abstracted proton is released as hydrochloric acid where the chlorine is derived from aluminium chloride. The reaction is catalyzed by Brønsted or Lewis acids such as HF, AlCl 3, BF 3, TiCl 4 or SnCl 4.
