Microwave-assisted synthesis of cyclopentanones using the relevant phosphorus ylides.


PMID 22263857

Abstract

A one-pot synthesis of cyclopentanone derivatives from phosphorus ylide under lab-type microwave assisted methodology was described. The phosphorus ylides were obtained via the reaction of activated acetylenic compounds, ethyl 4-chloroacetoacetate and triphenylphosphine. The structure of phosphorus ylides was assigned by ¹H, ¹³C and ³¹PNMR. The phosphorus ylides as precursor were crystallized as two enantiomers (R,R) and (S,S) and one of the phosphorus ylide structures was confirmed by single X-ray crystallography.
