Condensation of the azines of 2-thenaldehyde or 5-bromo-2-thenaldehyde with various N-arylmaleimides gave the 1:2 adducts 2,9-di(2-thienyl or 5-bromo-2-thienyl)-5,12-diaryl-1,5,8,12-tetraazatetracyclodecane-4,6,11,13-tetraones (1-6). Dehydrogenation of these adducts by boiling in nitrobenzene gave the dehydrogenated products (7-9). Fusion of a mixture of Schiff’s bases derived from 5-nitro-2-thenaldehyde or 5-nitrofurfural and aromatic amines with N-arylmaleimides in molar ratio 1:2 gave the spiro adducts 3,5’,8’,1’-tetrasubstituted 2,4,4’,6’-tetraoxo-spiro{pyrrolidin-1,2’-(octahydropyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrroles)} (10-19). The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR and mass spectra. The preliminary antimicrobial testing of the prepared compounds against some pathogenic microorganisms proved that the spiro adducts particularly the compound (19) of great activity against Staph. aureus.

Reaction Paths and New Mechanistic Aspects of the Proton-catalyzed Reaction of 3-Alkylindoles with Arylaldehydes

Klaus Dittmann and Ulf Pindur*

*Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Institute of Pharmacy, University of Mainz, Saarstrasse 21, D-55122 Mainz, Germany


The mechanism of the proton-catalyzed reaction of 3-alkylindoles with arylaldehydes is elucidated by the isolation of stable intermediates and products, and by the selective control of their transformations in the course of reaction. The aldehyde electrophile attacks at N1, C2 and C3 on the indole enamine structure with the temperature, the reaction time and the proton concentration controlling the relative quantities and distribution of products. It was established indirectly that an ipso-attack by intermediary cations with iminium and indolenine structure takes place at the 3-position of 3-alkylated indoles. This was made possible by the isolation of hitherto unknown tetrahydropyrrolodiindoles 14, 17. These compounds should be formed from intermediary indolylmethyl-indoleninium ions 13, 11, which are trapped by stereoelectronic controlled intramolecular cyclization.

The ring transformations of rotenone and rotenonone by primary amines were investigated. The improved synthetic methods for rotenonone were also developed. Rotenone (1) underwent cleavage of C-12a and O-13 linkage to give [1-(4-hydroxy-2-methylethenyl-2,3-dihydrobenzofuran-5-yl)-1-(6,7-dimethoxy-2H-chromen-4-yl)methylidene]alkylamines (2a-b), while rotenonone (5) gave 2-alkylcarbamoyl-4-alkylimino-8-methylethenyl-3-(2-hydroxy-4,5-dimethoxy)phenyl-8,9-dihydro-4H-furo[2,3-h][1]benzopyrans (7a-d) as a result of nucleophilic attack on C-12 carbon. Compound 1 was oxidized by nitrosyl chloride or dimethyl sulfoxide in the presence of iodine and sulfuric acid to provide retenonone (5) in improved yields respectively.

*Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Saitama University, Saitama, Saitama 338-8570, Japan


Halogenotetrathiafulvalenes were prepared by treating tetrathiafulvalene with lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) and then with halogenating agents. Treatment of 2-bromotetrathiafulvalene with LDA results in the bromine dance which affords tetrathiafulvalene, 2-bromotetrathiafulvalene, three positional isomers of dibromotetrathiafulvalene, and 2,3,6-tribromotetrathiafulvalene.
