  • Metal-Free, Brønsted Acid-Catalyzed Formal [3+2] Annulation of Quinone Monoacetals with 2-Naphthols
    Anu Jacob, Tony Roy, Trinadh Kaicharla, and Akkattu T. Biju

    Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN: 00223263, eISSN: 15206904, Pages: 11269-11274, Published: 20 October 2017 American Chemical Society (ACS)
    An operationally simple and metal-free cross-coupling of quinone monoacetals (QMAs) with 2-naphthols catalyzed by triflic acid is reported. This formal [3+2] annulation allowed the synthesis of diverse naphtho[2,1-b]benzofuran derivatives in moderate to good yields. Preliminary mechanistic studies reveal the initial nucleophilic substitution of QMAs with 2-naphthols in preference to the mixed acetal formation and subsequent [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement.

    Tony Roy, Manikandan Thangaraj, Trinadh Kaicharla, Rupa V. Kamath, Rajesh G. Gonnade, and Akkattu T. Biju

    Organic Letters, ISSN: 15237060, eISSN: 15237052, Pages: 5428-5431, Published: 21 October 2016 American Chemical Society (ACS)
    Arynes are employed in the transition-metal-free and mild [2,3] Stevens rearrangement of tertiary allylic amines for the synthesis of functionalized homoallylic amines in moderate to good yield with a broad substrate scope. The key nitrogen ylide intermediate was generated by the N-arylation of allyl amines using arynes. Moreover, the reaction of chiral allyl amines with arynes resulted in the enantiospecific synthesis of homoallylic amines. In addition, preliminary studies on the [1,2] Stevens rearrangement is also presented.

  • Lewis Acid Catalyzed Selective Reactions of Donor–Acceptor Cyclopropanes with 2-Naphthols
    Trinadh Kaicharla, Tony Roy, Manikandan Thangaraj, Rajesh G. Gonnade, and Akkattu T. Biju

    Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, ISSN: 14337851, eISSN: 15213773, Pages: 10061-10064, Published: 2016 Wiley
    Lewis acid-catalyzed reactions of 2-substituted cyclopropane 1,1-dicarboxylates with 2-naphthols is reported. The reaction exhibits tunable selectivity depending on the nature of Lewis acid employed and proceed as a dearomatization/rearomatization sequence. With Bi(OTf)3 as the Lewis acid, a highly selective dehydrative [3+2] cyclopentannulation takes place leading to the formation of naphthalene-fused cyclopentanes. Interestingly, engaging Sc(OTf)3 as the Lewis acid, a Friedel-Crafts-type addition of 2-naphthols to cyclopropanes takes place, thus affording functionalized 2-naphthols. Both reactions furnished the target products in high regioselectivity and moderate to high yields.

  • Transition-Metal-Free Synthesis of Benzo-Fused Five- and Six-Membered Heterocycles Employing Arynes
    Trinadh Kaicharla and Akkattu T. Biju

    Green Synthetic Approaches for Biologically Relevant Heterocycles, Pages: 45-76, Published: 2015 Elsevier
    A comprehensive overview of the synthesis of various benzo-fused five- and six-membered heterocyclic compounds utilizing a transition-metal-free approach employing arynes is the focal theme of this chapter. The synthesis of these heterocycles has been achieved under green and operationally simple procedures using a mild method for the generation of arynes by the fluoride-induced 1,2-elimination of 2-(trimethylsilyl)aryl triflates developed by Kobayashi and coworkers in 1983. Consequently, arynes have been employed for the construction of multisubstituted arenes of structural diversity and complexity. The versatile transition-metal-free applications of arynes include cycloaddition reactions, insertion reactions, and multicomponent reactions for the construction of various heterocycles.

  • Multicomponent reactions involving phosphines, arynes and aldehydes
    Anup Bhunia, Trinadh Kaicharla, Digvijay Porwal, Rajesh G. Gonnade, and Akkattu T. Biju

    Chemical Communications, ISSN: 13597345, eISSN: 1364548X, Pages: 11389-11392, Published: 28 August 2014 Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
    Although nucleophilic phosphine-catalysis is a powerful tool for the construction of various carbocycles and heterocycles, the reactions in which phosphines are incorporated into the final product are rare, and the reports on phosphine addition to highly electrophilic arynes are scarce. Herein, we report the phosphine triggered multicomponent reaction of arynes and aldehydes, which takes place via the formal [3+2] cycloaddition of an initially generated 1,3-phosphonium zwitterion from phosphines and arynes with aldehydes. The reaction resulted in the formation of a diverse range of stable pentacovalent phosphoranes in good yields based on the benzooxaphosphole system.
