Abstract
The single crystal structure of bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)phosphine oxide has been determined. All interatomic distances and angles can be considered normal. The aryl substituents adopt an intermediate configuration when compared to both sterically unhindered (e.g., diphenylphosphine oxide) and congested (e.g., bis(2,4,6-tri-tert-butylphenyl)phosphine oxide) secondary [...] Read more.
The single crystal structure of bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)phosphine oxide has been determined. All interatomic distances and angles can be considered normal. The aryl substituents adopt an intermediate configuration when compared to both sterically unhindered (e.g., diphenylphosphine oxide) and congested (e.g., bis(2,4,6-tri-tert-butylphenyl)phosphine oxide) secondary phosphine oxides, illustrating the influence of steric congestion on the molecular structure.

The title ester (1R,2S,5R)-2-isopropyl-5-methylcyclohexyl 4-aminobutyrate hydrochloride was obtained in 96% yield via Steglich esterification. The structure of the target compound was established by FTIR, HR-MS, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR spectral analysis, and single crystal X-ray diffraction study. Single crystals of the title ester suitable for X-ray investigation were obtained by slow evaporation of the methanolic solution at room temperature. The purity of compound was assessed using HPLC coupled to mass spectrometry. Full article

An interaction of water-methanol solution of sodium1,4-benzenediacetate (bda) and 4,4′-bipyridylethelene (bpee) with aqueous solution of Zn(NO3)2·6H2O at room temperature yielded colourless crystals of 1 after three weeks in a sealed glass tube. The compound with composition C22H18ZnN2O4 crystallizes in monoclinic space group P21/c, with the following cell dimensions: a = 10.4566(2), b = 13.3085(2), c = 13.7189(2) Å, β = 101.491(1)°. In the structure of 1, two Zn(II) neighbours are connected by two bda ligands adopting chelating and bidentate-bridging coordination modes to form a dimeric unit (Zn2O8N4) with the Zn–Zn distance of 4.0432(6) Å. The carboxyl-bridged dimeric units are extended along the [001] direction by bpee co-ligands and further linked by bda ligand to form a three-dimensional network structure. The IR shows the characteristic bands of the carboxylates at 1611/1507 cm−1 and 1424/1373 cm−1, respectively, for asymmetric and symmetric stretching −CO2 vibrations. The separation ∆[νasym(CO2) − νsym(CO2)] values of 187 and 134 cm−1 are indicative of chelating and bidentate bridging coordination modes of the carboxylate to the metal centre. Full article

This note describes a sequence converting an oxime-substituted pyrrolidine into a trisubstituted pyrrole structure. The synthetic route is based on a double chlorination of the pyrrolidine substrate followed by the base induced formation of both an imine and a nitrile oxide functionality. The latter reacts with an immobilized thiourea to yield an isothiocyanate which upon elimination generates the final pyrrole in an unprecedented cascade of events. Full article

A dicarbonylruthenium(II) complex containing bidentate 2-(2-pyridyl)-1,8-naphthyridine, as well as monodentate aqua and chlorido ligands, were isolated and characterized using spectroscopic techniques and single crystal X-ray diffraction.

A dicarbonylruthenium(II) complex containing bidentate 2-(2-pyridyl)-1,8-naphthyridine, as well as monodentate aqua and chlorido ligands, were isolated and characterized using spectroscopic techniques and single crystal X-ray diffraction. These data indicate that geometrical isomerization occurs during the substitution reaction involving a superacid. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were performed on the plausible geometrical isomers. The DFT-optimized structures and calculated infrared spectra suggest that the experimentally obtained structure is stable. Full article

A novel di-Mannich derivative of curcumin pyrazole, 2-[(2,6-dimethyl morpholin-4-yl)methyl]-4-[(E)-2-{3-[(E)-2-{3-[(2,6-dimethylmorpholin-4-yl)methyl]-4-hydroxy-5-methoxyphenyl}ethenyl]-1H-pyrazol-5-yl}ethenyl]-6-methoxyphenol (2), has been synthesized through a Mannich reaction of curcumin pyrazole (1), formaldehyde, and 2,6-dimethylmorpholine. The structure of the synthesized compound was confirmed on the basis of FTIR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, 2D Heteronuclear Single-Quantum Correlation (HSQC) and 2D Heteronuclear Multiple Bond Correlation (HMBC), and mass spectral data. The water solubility was evaluated and the result showed that compound 2 was three times more soluble than that of curcumin pyrazole (1) and curcumin. Full article

This note describes a novel reaction cascade in which a tosylhydrazone derivative of eucarvone undergoes a non-classical dimerization process under basic conditions. The key step in this sequence is a dipolar cycloaddition between a diazo species and a transient cyclopropene. A proposed mechanism for this sequence is presented that is supported by single crystal X-ray analysis of the resulting dimer. We believe this unique transformation is of note as it highlights a neat and efficient entry to complex polycyclic architectures containing an embedded pyrazoline moiety. Full article

Regioselective 6-O-tritylation followed by per-acetylation and 6-OTr removal using HBr/AcOH gave the required primary alcohol substrate, which was then oxidised to the target compound using TEMPO/BAIB. None of the synthetic steps required column chromatography and the product was fully characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, 2D NMR, MS and IR. Full article
