     View Summary

    <p>The rhodium(III)-catalyzed annulative coupling of 9-benzoylcarbazoles with internal alkynes proceeds efficiently through <i>ortho</i> C–H and C–N bond cleavages. This reaction provides direct access to variously substituted indanone derivatives. The carbazolyl leaving group can be readily recovered and reused for preparing the starting materials.</p>

     View Summary

    With a view to applying to the synthesis of building blocks for organic salt crystals, the regioselective direct functionalization methods of fused aromatic sulfonic acids and aromatic amines have been developed. Thus, rhodium-, iridium-, and ruthenium-catalyzed regioselective substitution at the approximate positions of sulfur-containing functional groups including sulfo and sulfonyl functions as well as an amino group has been achieved via directed C-H bond cleavage and alkene or alkyne insertion. A series of organic salt crystals have been prepared from thus obtained aromatic compounds and their supramolecular structures and basic properties have been investigated.

  • Development of New Methods for Construction of Organic Functional Materials Based on Selective Transformation of Ubiquitous Bonds

    Project/Area Number : 24225002  Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(S) Partaker / Other

    Project Year :


    Partaker : SATOH Tetsuya, HIRANO Koji, NISHII Yuji

     View Summary

    In order to develop new, high performance catalysts for the direct transformation reactions of organic compounds through cleavage of C-H bonds as ubiquitous chemical bonds, various ligands have been examined for rhodium and palladium complexes. It has been found that using elaborated cyclopentadienyl and phosphorous ligands allows to improve their catalytic activity and to significantly expand the scope of applicable substrates. In addition, the utilization of cheap and abundant metals including copper and nickel as catalysts has also been examined, and a variety of unique transformations have been developed. Consequently, we have synthesized various pi-electron conjugated compounds with the developed catalyst systems and found a range of new interesting compounds that show semiconducting and solid state-luminescent properties.

  • Efficient Transformation of Alcohols in Fluorinated Ionic Liquids as Unique Reaction Media

    Project/Area Number : 24655080  Grant-in-Aid for challenging Exploratory Research Partaker / Other

    Project Year :


    Partaker : SATOH Tetsuya, HIRANO Koji

     View Summary

    We succeeded in the synthesis of four novel imidazolium salts that bear polyfluoroaryl groups on the nitrogen atom of the imidazolium ring and preliminary investigated their physical properties. Additionally, we attempted to apply the above salts to some transition metal catalysis as a unique electron-deficient NHC ligand. On the other hand, to get a concise access to versatile molecules that contain the polyfluoroaryl groups, we developed a new synthetic method for preparation of (polyfluoroaryl)allenes by copper-catalyzed regioselective direct coupling of polyfluoroarenes with propargylic phosphates.

  • Development of Oxidative Cyclization Reactions via C-H CleavageBased on First Row Transition Metal Catalysts

    Project/Area Number : 22655027  Grant-in-Aid for challenging Exploratory Research Partaker / Other

    Project Year :


    Partaker : SATOH Tetsuya, HIRANO Koji

     View Summary

    We have focused on the potential of first row transition metals, in particular, copper salts, and succeeded in the development of unique catalytic activity of copper/O2systems. Namely, the copper-catalyzed oxidative direct cyclization between N-methylanilines and electron-deficient olefins proceeded through C-H cleavage even under ambient conditions. In addition, when a similar copper/oxygen catalyst was applied to the reaction of heteroarenes with sulfoximines, the direct C-N bond formation occurred via both C-H and C-N cleavages.
