Title: Ecofriendly syntheses of phenothiazones and related structures facilitated by laccase – A comparative study

Abstract

The biocatalytic synthesis of phenothiazones and related compounds has been achieved in an aqueous system under mild conditions facilitated by laccase oxidation. It was found that by coupling 2-aminothiophenol directly with 1,4-quinones, the product yields could be significantly increased compared to generating the 1,4-quinones in situ from the corresponding hydroquinones via laccase oxidation. However, laccase still proved to be pivotal for achieving highest product yields by catalyzing the final oxidation step. Furthermore, a difference in reactivity of aromatic and aliphatic amines toward 1,4-naphthoquinone is observed. Furthermore, this study provides a sustainable approach to the synthesis of a biologically important class of compounds.

  • The solution-mediated syntheses and single crystal structures of (CH 3NH 3) 3·Zn 40(AsO 4) 3 and (CH 3NH 3) 3·Zn 4O(P0 4) 3 are reported. These compounds are built up from vertex-sharing three-dimensional Zn0 4 + AsO 4/P0 4 tetrahedral frameworks encapsulating methylammonium cations in three-dimensional channel systems. These phases are closely related to the zeolite- like M 3Zn 4O(XO 4) 3·nH 2O family of phases. Crystal data for (CH 3NH 3) 3·Zn 40(AsO 4) 3, M, = 790.47, monoclinic, space group P2 1 (No. 4), a = 7.814 (3)Å, b = 15.498 (6)Å, c = 7.815 (3) Å, {beta}more » = 92.91 (2)0, V = 945.1 (9) Å 3, Z = 2, R(F) = 3.01%, R W(F) = 3.98% (2301 reflections, 236 parameters).

  • Several new copper oxychlorides with the K{sub 2}NiF{sub 4}-type and related structures (the O2(n-1)n where n=1, 2 and 3, and the O222 structures) are synthesized using a high pressure technique. These are (Ca,K){sub 2}CuO{sub 2}Cl{sub 2} (T{sub c} = 24 K), Ba{sub 2}CuO{sub 2}Cl{sub 2} for the O201; (Sr, Ca){sub 3}Cu{sub 2}O{sub 4+{delta}}Cl{sub 2{minus}y} (T{sub c} = 80 K) for the O212; (Sr, Ca){sub 4}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+{delta}}Cl{sub 2{minus}y} (T{sub c} = 46 K) for the O223; CaLnCuO{sub 3}Cl (Ln= Y, Ho, Er) for the O222. Hole carrier doping to induce superconductivity and size tuning of the CuO{sub 2} sheet aremore » attained in these new oxychlorides.« less
  • The direct addition of nickel powder to the reaction mixtures of 1,3-dialkyl-4,5-dioxoimidazolidine-2-thione (1) with the thionation Lawesson reagent produces [Ni{sup II}(R{sub 2}timdt{sup -}){sub 2}] (R{sub 2}timdt = 1,3-dialkylmidazolidine-2,4,5-trithione). These complexes belong to a new class of nickel-dithiolenes, showing remarkably high absorption ({epsilon} {approx} 80 000 dm{sup 3} mol{sup -1} cm{sup -1}, {lambda} {approx} 1000 nm) in the near-infrared region (near-IR), accompanied by high photochemical stability that makes these complexes promising near-IR dyes.
  • The title compound [FuMo[sub 2](CO)[sub 4]([mu],[eta][sup 2],[eta][sup 3]-MeC[equivalent to]CCH[sub 2])][BF[sub 4]] (3) was obtained quantitatively by protonation of [FvMo[sub 2](CO)[sub 4][mu],[eta][sup 2],[eta][sup 2]-MeC[equivalent to]CCH[sub 2]OMe] (2) in ether solution. In solution 3 was found to be fluxional. The mechanism of exchange was elucidated by 2-D [sup 1]H NMR EXSY (exchange spectroscopy), and the rate constants were determined with k[sub int] = 35 [+-] 4 s[sup [minus]1], [delta]G[double dagger]70[degrees]C = 17.7 [+-] 0.4 kcal/mol and k[sub rot] = 5 [+-] 0.5 s[sup [minus]1], [Delta]70[degrees]C = 19.1 [+-] 0.4 kcal/mol (int = interconversion; rot = rotation). Consistent with this fluxional behavior themore » molecular structure of 3, ascertained by X-ray analysis, showed a dynamic disorder in the solid state for the bridged hydrocarbyl ligand as well as for the carbonyl groups. [FvMo[sub 2](CO)[sub 4]([mu],[eta][sup 2],[eta][sup 3]-MeC[equivalent to]CCH[sub 2])]BF[sub 4] (3) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2[sub 1]/n with Z = 4 and cell dimensions a = 8.546 (3), b = 26.4441 (14), and c = 8.619 (2) [angstrom] and [beta] = 105.73 (2)[degrees]. The reactivity of this carbenium ion complex with respect to various nucleophiles is reported, including the X-ray molecular structure of the phosphonium derivative FvMo[sub 2](CO)[sub 4][mu],[eta][sup 2],[eta][sup 2]-MeC[equivalent to]CCH[sub 2]PPh[sub 3][BF[sub 4]] (6) obtained from phosphine addition to 3. Compound 6 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2[sub 1]/c with Z = 8 and cell dimensions a = 13.243 (4) b = 13.243 (4), and c = 38.461 (4) [angstrom] and [beta] = 93.92 (2)[degrees]; the structure was refined to R and R[sub w] values of 4.3 and 5.0%, respectively, using 6606 reflections. 16 refs., 3 figs.« less
