General description

Aceanthrenequinone is a cyclic α-diketone. It reacts with hexaethyltriaminophosphine in the presence of fullerene C(60), to yield methanofullerene derivatives. Hydroxyalkylation reactions of aceanthrenequinone with a series of arenes was reported.

Application

Aceanthrenequinone was used in synthesis of spiro-tricyclic porphodimethenes.

[structure: see text] Acid-catalyzed [2 + 2] condensation reactions of polycyclic aromatic vicinal diketones including aceanthrenequinone, phenathrenequinone, and pyrene-4,5-dione with 5-mesityldipyrromethanes are outlined, and this methodology provides a flexible entry to spiro-tricyclic porphodimethenes. The porphodimethene products have been fully characterized...

The hydroxyalkylation reactions of aceanthrenequinone (6) and acenapthenequinone (7) with a series of arenes have been studied. In reactions with the Brønsted superacid CF(3)SO(3)H (triflic acid), the condensation products are formed in good yields (58-99%, 10 examples) with high regioselectivity....

The reactions of such cyclic α-diketones as acenaphthenequinone, aceanthrenequinone, and N-alkylisatins, with hexaethyltriaminophosphine in the presence of the fullerene C(60), lead to the formation of methanofullerene derivatives under mild conditions. This process proceeds via deoxygenation of the dicarbonyl compound by...

Carboxylesterases (CE) are ubiquitous enzymes responsible for the detoxification of xenobiotics, including numerous clinically used drugs. Therefore, the selective inhibition of these proteins may prove useful in modulating drug half-life and bioavailability. Recently, we identified 1,2-diones as potent inhibitors of...
