    Pd-catalyzed bromination of mesoionic 1,3-diphenyltetrazolium-5-olate (1) was developed. In the presence of palladium acetate (5 mol%), N-bromosuccinimide (110 mol%), and p-toluenesulfonic acid (50 mol%) in 1,2-dichloroethane under reflux, olate 1 underwent bromination to give 1-(2-bromophenyl)-3-phenyltetrazolium-5-olate in a moderate yield as the major product, indicating that the 4-nitrogen atom acts as a directing group rather than the negatively charged oxygen atom. The X-ray-suitable crystals of the corresponding palladacycle were isolated from 1-mesityl-3-phentytetrazolium-5-olate and fully characterized. When both the o-positions of the 3-phenyl group were occupied by bromine atoms, o-bromination then occurred at the 1-phenyl group with the aid of the olate oxygen.

    1-Butyl-3-methyltetrazolium-5-olate (1), a mesoionic compound, exists as a liquid at room temperature and can be used as a polar solvent for the Mizoroki-Heck reaction, wherein it has been proven to be a superior solvent to other solvents. The reaction of iodobenzene with ethyl acrylate in the presence of palladium acetate in mesoionic liquid 1 at 40 C for 24 h gave ethyl cinnamate in 78% yield in the absence of ligands, while the use of other solvents, such as [bmim][BF4], [bmim][PF6], and DMF gave lower yields (43%, 37%, and 17%, respectively) under the same conditions. Heck-type coupling reactions of electron-deficient or electron-rich aryl iodides and bromobenzenes with olefins (15 examples, 7%–97%) were performed in 1. When a phosphine ligand was added to the reaction mixture, aryl bromides could be used, and the mesoionic liquid containing the catalysts could be reused at least five times.

    Mesoionic 1,3-dialkyltetrazolium-5-thiolates can be prepared in good yields by alkylation of 1-alkyltetrazole-5-thiols with secondary alcohols in concentrated sulfuric acid. The thiolates are transformed into the corresponding olates through S-alkylation followed by hydrolysis. The olates were found to be liquid at room temperature and to work effectively as polar solvents. The use of a smaller amount of sulfuric acid led to drastically different products; S-bridged dimers linked by 1,2-dimethylethylene were formed as the major products.

    A series of reactions between 5-nitroso-1,3-diphenyltetrazolium tetrafluoroborate and methoxybenzenes, amines, thiols, sulfoxides, and sulfides, most of which are generally accepted asbeing inert to nitroso groups, is reported here. The tetrazoliumactivated nitroso functionality is capable of oxidizing the aforementioned substrates to give the corresponding oxidized products, and the nitroso tetrazolium itself is transformed into the corresponding amide or hydroxyamide, depending on the nature of the reaction partners. In the case of thioanisole, an addition product was obtained.

    Sodium hypochlorite pentahydrate (NaOCl·5H2O) is capable of oxidizing alcohols in acetonitrile at 20 °C without the use of catalysts. The oxidation is selective to allylic, benzylic, and secondary alcohols. ­Aliphatic primary alcohols are not oxidized.

    Authorship:Lead author   Language:English   Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    The In-mediated allylation of carbonyl compounds can be performed in various types of solvents including ionic liquids. However, we have found that in [bmim][BF4] (where bmim = 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium), the In-mediated coupling of crotyl bromide with benzaldehyde gives a complex mixture, and some additives, such as halides and amines, are crucial for the successful conversion to the corresponding γ-adduct. Instead, the addition of alcohols or water promotes the formation of the α-adduct. An asymmetric induction with up to 62% enantiomeric excess (ee) was observed employing cinchonidine as an additive in a binary solvent consisting of an ionic liquid and dichloromethane.

    A mesoionic‐nitrosotetrazolium‐catalyzed aerobic oxidation of alcohols is reported. In the presence of catalytic amounts of 5‐nitroso‐1,3‐diphenyltetrazolium tetrafluoroborate (5 mol‐%) and nitric acid (20 mol‐%), a wide range of alcohols are oxidized to the corresponding aldehydes and ketones in yields of 53–100 % at room temperature under ambient air or oxygen conditions. This oxidation shows a strong preference for secondary alcohols over primary alcohols; sterically hindered alcohols are also smoothly oxidized. A mechanism involving a nitroso/NOx catalytic cycle is proposed.
