Photochemistry of Heterocyclic Cage Compound: Photoreaction of 2,7-Dihydro- azepine to Give 2,3-Dihydroazepine and Photoreaction of the 2,3-Dihydroazepine to Form 1,2-Dihydroaniline

Katsuhiro Saito* and Yoshitaka Emoto

*Department of Applied Chemistry, Nagoya Institute of Technology, Gokiso-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya 466-8555, Japan


Photoirradiation of a heterocyclic cage compound, 2,7-dihydroazepine derivative with a low pressure mercury lamp afforded a 2,3-dihydroazepine derivative. This reaction was influenced by the solvent used. On the other hand, the analogous photoirradiation of the 2,3-dihydroazepine derivative gave a 1,2-dihydroaniline derivative. An presence of triplet sensitizer promoted the reaction.

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Setsunan University, 45-1, Nagaotoge-cho, Hirakata, Osaka 573-0101, Japan


Treatment of N-tosyl-α-(trifluoromethyl)homoallylamines (4), obtained by the ene type reaction of N-(2,2,2-trifluoro-1-ethoxyethyl)tosylamide (3), with a protic acid afforded N-tosyl-α-(trifluoromethyl)pyrrolidine derivatives (5 and 6). For example, 4-phenyl-N-tosyl-1-(trifluoromethyl)-3-butenylamine (4a) gave cis- and trans-2-phenyl-N-tosyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrrolidines (5a and 6a). Interestingly, 6a was a major product in a moderate reaction condition, while 5a was a major product in more drastic conditions. The mechanism of these reactions is speculated. Treatment of 4a with iodine in the presence of sodium hydrogencarbonate brought about iodocyclization to give 3-iodo-2- phenyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)-N-tosylpyrrolidines (7 and 8).

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tokushima Bunri University, Yamashiro-cho, Tokushima, 770-8514, Japan


The rate and mode of intramolecular oxymercuration of 4-hexen-1-ol derivatives was greatly affected by mercuric salts. Mercuric acetate induced a slow reaction to give substituted tetrahydrofurans via 5-exo-trans cyclization. In contrast, 6-endo-trans cyclization proceeded exclusively by mercuric triflate with or without N,N,N’,N’-tetramethylurea.

A meso-unsubstituted porphyrin having a formyl group was synthesized both from a mono(ethoxycarbonyl)porphyrin by reduction with LiAlH4 followed by oxidation with MnO2 and from a monocyanoporphyrin by reduction with DIBALH. The monoethoxycarbonyl and monocyanoporphyrins were prepared by the acid catalyzed mixed condensation of the corresponding 4-ethoxycarbonyl- and 4-cyano-2-(hydroxymethyl)pyrroles with 3-mesityl-4-methyl-2-(hydroxymethyl)pyrrole. A porphyrin with four formyl groups at the β-positions was prepared from ethyl 4-(dithiolan-2-yl)-3-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylate by the sequential treatment of LiAlH4, p-TsOH, and NBS. Cyclic voltammetry and UV-VIS spectroscopic analyses of these porphyrins revealed the highly electron-deficient property of the porphyrin chromophore.
