Abstract

A one-pot, three-component, Cu(I)-catalyzed coupling of primary hydrazines, 5-chloropentan-2-one, and terminal alkynes was developed. The resulting 1-aza-6,7-dehydrotropanes compose a new class of substances while related 1-azatropanes are scarcely described in literature and closely resemble tropane alkaloids. Hydrogenation of the double bond in 1-aza-6,7-dehydrotropanes triggered a rearrangement, involving a [1,3]-hydride shift, forming cyclic hydrazones.

  • 7 General Experimental Procedure for the Synthesis of Products 4 In an oven-dried microwave vessel (10 mL) were introduced Cu2O (36 mg, 0.25 mmol), hydrazine 1 (2.5 mmol), ketone 2a (1 mmol), alkyne 3 (1.2 mmol), and DCM (4 mL). The vessel was flushed with argon for 30 s, sealed, and introduced in a preheated oil bath of 50 °C and stirred during 24 h. Afterwards, the reaction mixture was poured into 0.5 N NaOH solution (20 mL) and extracted with DCM (2 × 20 mL). The organic phases were combined and dried over MgSO4·3H2O, filtered, and evaporated in vacuo. The crude product was then purified by automated column chromatography on a 12 g Grace column with heptanes/EtOAc as eluting solvents. 5,8-Dimethyl-7-phenyl-1,8-diazabicyclo[3.2.1]oct-6-ene (4a) 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3): δ = 7.64–7.62 (m, 2 H), 7.34–7.26 (m, 3 H), 5.78 (s, 1 H), 3.34–3.26 (m, 1 H), 2.86 (dd, 1 H, J = 13.3, 6.3 Hz), 2.37 (s, 3 H), 1.84–1.79 (m, 2 H), 1.48–1.43 (m, 2 H), 1.22 (s, 3 H). 13C NMR (100 MHz, CDCl3): δ = 147.0, 132.1, 128.5, 128.3, 126.6, 115.9, 68.8, 47.9, 37.6, 33.7, 20.0, 18.6.
