Abstract

An elegant method for the synthesis of 1,2,3-triazoles fused with five-, six-, seven- and eight-membered benzoheterocycles, including isoindoline, tetrahydroisoquinoline, benzoazepine and benzoazocine, has been developed via palladium-copper catalysed reactions in one-pot. The broad scope of this reaction was illustrated by effecting bis-heteroannulations, synthesis of uracil derivatives of biological interest, and employment of acetylene gas as an inexpensive substrate. The reactions are experimentally simple and utilise easily accessible substrates of different types.

  • 24 Cytotoxicities of compounds 11a and 11b against various cancer cell lines are currently under study.
  • 25 Based on control experiments and known features of palladium chemistry, a plausible reaction mechanism can be envisaged. Mechanistically, the active catalytic species Pd(0) is generated in situ by dimerization, to a small extent, of acetylenic compound 8. Next, coupling of 8 with iodide 7 takes place through the Sonogashira pathway, see: Sonogashira K, Tohda Y, Haghihara N. Tetrahedron Lett. 1975; 50: 4467 ; leading to the formation of intermediate o-alkynyl azide derivative, which is then converted into products 14 through intramolecular [3+2] cycloaddition between azide and alkyne moieties. An alternative mechanism involving copper-assisted regioselective [3+2] cycloaddition between acetylene and azide groups of substrates 8 and 7, leading to the formation of intermediate 1,4-substituted 1,2,3-triazoles 9 (X = I), which may undergo intramolecular coupling with aryl iodide through C–H bond activation to form the products 14, was ruled out on the basis of control experiments
