The versatile Knorr pyrrole synthesis is an important route to pyrroles it involves the condensation of a β-keto ester with an α-amino ketone An important pyrrole synthesis, known as the Knorr synthesis, is of the cyclizative condensation type. An α-amino ketone furnishes a nucleophilic nitrogen and. Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis. Schematic representation of the Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis. Mechanism of the Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis.

The reaction is exothermicand the mixture can reach the boiling point, if external cooling is not applied. Canadian Journal of Chemistry. In Elderfield, Robert Cooley. The 5-methyl group can be variously oxidized to chloromethyl, aldehyde, or carboxylic acid functionality by the use of stoichiometric sulfuryl chloride in glacial acetic acid. Preparation of Pyrroles G. Ring forming reactions Nitrogen heterocycle forming reactions Heterocycle forming reactions Carbon-heteroatom bond forming reactions Carbon-carbon bond forming reactions Name reactions.

However, when unsymmetrical diketones were used, it was found that the acetyl pyrfole from the acetoacetamide was retained in the product, and one of the acyl groups from the diketone had been lost.

Amarnath tried to stabilize or pyrgole the immonium ion with different aryl groups as substituents:. Ethyl and benzyl esters are easily made thereby, and the reaction is noteworthy in that even the highly hindered tert -butyl alcohol gives very high yields in this synthesis.

Ley, Synlett, Benzyl groups can be removed by catalytic hydrogenolysis over palladium on carbonand tertiary-butyl groups can be removed by treatment with trifluoroacetic acidor boiling aqueous acetic acid. It will proceed at room temperature.

The nitro group has in every knror had a positive effect on the reaction rate. One equivalent of sodium hydroxide will saponify the 2-ester selectively. The original Knorr synthesis employed two equivalents of ethyl acetoacetateone of which was converted to ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate by dissolving it in glacial acetic acidand slowly adding one equivalent of saturated aqueous sodium nitriteunder external cooling.

Paal-Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis

Similarly, 3-ketobutyraldehyde diethyl acetal led to the formation of synnthesis 5-methylpyrrolecarboxylate. Levi and Zanetti extended the Knorr synthesis in to the use of acetylacetone 2,4-pentanedione in reaction with ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate. The resulting product, diethyl 3,5-dimethylpyrrole-2,4-dicarboxylate, has been called Knorr’s Pyrrole ever since. Chemische Berichte in German. Knorr’s pyrrole can be derivatized in a number of useful manners.

The substituents also influence the basicity khorr the imine, with the nitro group leading to a more basic nucleophile. Meanwhile, Johnson had extended the Fischer-Fink synthesis by reacting 2-oximinoacetoacetate esters ethyl, benzyl, or tertiary-butylwith 3-alkyl substituted 2,4-pentanediones.

The methoxy group has a negative effect on the cyclization rate in each case.

Dissolving Knorr’s pyrrole in concentrated sulfuric acidand then pouring the resulting solution into water will hydrolyze the 4-ester group selectively. The mechanism requires zinc and acetic acid as catalysts.


Paal-Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis

The rates of cyclization have been compared using ammonia and methylamine. Berichte der deutschen chemischen Gesellschaft in German. Journal of the Chemical Society Resumed: Even thioesters have been successfully prepared, using the method. A mechanism that accounts for the influence of different substitution patterns mesodl and explains the influence of a p -nitrophenyl group making a nucleophile more reactive although not as the imine includes the cyclization of a hemiacetal synthesiis is followed by different dehydration steps:.

Modern practice is to add the oxime solution resulting from the nitrosation and the zinc dust gradually to a well-stirred solution of ethyl acetoacetate in glacial acetic acid. Hans Fischer and Emmy Fink found that Zanetti’s synthesis from 2,4-pentanedione and ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate gave ethyl 3,5-dimethylpyrrolecarboxylate as a trace byproduct.
