  • Palladium-Catalyzed Remote Diborylative Cyclization of Dienes with Diborons via Chain Walking

    Kanno S., Kakiuchi F., Kochi T.

    Journal of the American Chemical Society (Journal of the American Chemical Society)  143 ( 46 ) 19275 - 19281 2021.11

    ISSN  00027863

     View Summary

    A novel method for catalytic remote bismetalation of alkene substrates by the addition of dimetal reagents is accomplished by using chain walking. In the presence of a palladium catalyst, the reaction of various 1,n-dienes and diborons were converted into cyclopentane derivatives with two boryl groups at remote positions via facile regioselective transformation of an unactivated sp3 C-H bond to a C-B bond. Sequential construction of three distant bonds, which is difficult to achieve by any method, was accomplished for the reactions of 1,n-dienes (n ≥ 7).

  • Remote Arylative Substitution of Alkenes Possessing an Acetoxy Group via β-Acetoxy Elimination

    Muto K., Kumagai T., Kakiuchi F., Kochi T.

    Angewandte Chemie - International Edition (Angewandte Chemie - International Edition)  60 ( 46 ) 24500 - 24504 2021.11

    ISSN  14337851

     View Summary

    Palladium-catalyzed remote arylative substitution was achieved for the reaction of arylboronic acids with alkenes possessing a distant acetoxy group to provide arylation products having an alkene moiety at the remote position. The use of β-acetoxy elimination as a key step in the catalytic cycle allowed for regioselective formation of unstabilized alkenes after chain walking. This reaction was applicable to various arylboronic acids as well as alkene substrates.

  • Anti-Markovnikov Addition of Anilines to Aliphatic Terminal Alkynes Catalyzed by an 8-Quinolinolato Rhodium Complex

    Morimoto Y., Kochi T., Kakiuchi F.

    Helvetica Chimica Acta (Helvetica Chimica Acta)  104 ( 10 )  2021.10

    ISSN  0018019X

     View Summary

    Anti-Markovnikov addition of anilines to aliphatic terminal alkynes proceeded using an 8-quinolinolato rhodium/phosphine catalyst system. The use of a strong organic base, 1,1,3,3,–tetramethylguanidine, in the catalyst system enabled the formation of the aldimine products. Substrates with various functional groups including polar groups such as a phenolic hydroxy group are applicable to the hydroamination.

  • Rhodium-Catalyzed Anti-Markovnikov Hydroamination of Aliphatic and Aromatic Terminal Alkynes with Aliphatic Primary Amines

    Morimoto Y., Kochi T., Kakiuchi F.

    Journal of Organic Chemistry (Journal of Organic Chemistry)  86 ( 18 ) 13143 - 13152 2021.09

    ISSN  00223263

     View Summary

    Anti-Markovnikov hydroamination of both aliphatic and aromatic terminal alkynes with primary amines was achieved using an 8-quinolinolato rhodium catalyst to form aldimines and enamines in high yields. This catalytic system realized high functional group tolerance including hydroxy, bromo, cyano, and thioester groups.

  • Deuterium-Labeling Studies on the C-H/Olefin Coupling of Aromatic Ketones Catalyzed by Fe(PMe <inf>3</inf>) <inf>4</inf>

    Kimura N., Katta S., Kitazawa Y., Kochi T., Kakiuchi F.

    Synthesis (Germany) (Synthesis (Germany))  53 ( 18 ) 3383 - 3389 2021.09

    ISSN  00397881

     View Summary

    Deuterium-labeling experiments were performed for the Fe(PMe 3) 4-catalyzed C-H/olefin coupling using a deuterium-labeled aromatic ketone with various alkenes. While the reactions with a variety of alkenes provided the linear alkylation products formed via 1,2-insertion of alkene into an Fe-H bond, the reversible 2,1-insertion proceeded during the reaction highly depends on the choice of the alkene. No H/D scrambling resulting from 2,1-insertion/β-elimination was detected for the reactions with a vinylsilane and N -vinylcarbazole, but the reactions with styrenes are considered to involve rapid 2,1-insertion/ β-elimination processes to cause significant levels of H/D scrambling.

  • Palladium-Catalyzed Aromatic C−H Functionalizations Utilizing Electrochemical Oxidations

    Kakiuchi F., Kochi T.

    Chemical Record (Chemical Record)  21 ( 9 ) 2320 - 2331 2021.09

    ISSN  15278999

     View Summary

    Transition-metal-catalyzed electrochemical C−H functionalizations have been extensively studied as atom- and step-economical clean methods in organic synthesis. In this account, we described our efforts on the palladium-catalyzed electrochemical C−H functionalizations, including C−H halogenations of arylpyridines and benzamide derivatives using HCl/HBr and I2 as a halogen source, a one-pot process giving teraryls via the palladium-catalyzed electrochemical C−H iodination and subsequent Suzuki-Miyaura coupling, and an iodine-mediated oxidative homo-coupling reaction of arylpyridines.

  • New strategy for catalytic oxidative CH functionalization: Efficient combination of transition-metal catalyst and electrochemical oxidation

    Kakiuchi F., Kochi T.

    Chemistry Letters (Chemistry Letters)  49 ( 10 ) 1256 - 1269 2020.10

    ISSN  03667022

     View Summary

    Transition-metal-catalyzed CH functionalizations have been extensively studied as atom- and step-economical methods in organic synthesis. Oxidative CH functionalization is one of the most extensively studied reactions in this area, but it is often necessary to deactivate the remaining oxidants and to remove the wastes derived from chemical oxidants. During the past few years, a combination of transition-metal-catalyzed CH activation and electrochemical oxidation has become a commonly-used environmentally-benign strategy for catalytic oxidative CH functionalization. In this review, we briefly survey studies regarding the transition-metal-catalyzed oxidative CH functionalization with the aid of electrochemical oxidation.

  • Nondissociative chain walking as a strategy in catalytic organic synthesis

    Kochi T, Kanno S, Kakiuchi F

    Tetrahedron Letters (Tetrahedron Letters)  60 ( 37 )  2019.09

    ISSN  00404039

     View Summary

    © 2019 Elsevier Ltd “Nondissociative” chain walking is a mechanism where an alkylmetal species undergoes rapid β-hydride elimination and reinsertion to move the metal center along the alkyl chain without dissociating an alkene intermediate during the migration process. This digest summarizes the unique characteristics of the nondissociative chain walking mechanism compared to the stepwise alkene isomerization mechanism and their use in catalytic organic synthesis.

  • Catalytic Reactions of Terminal Alkynes Using Rhodium(I) Complexes Bearing 8-Quinolinolate Ligands

    Kakiuchi F, Takano S, Kochi T

    ACS Catalysis (ACS Catalysis)  8 ( 7 ) 6127 - 6137 2018.07

    ISSN  2155-5435

     View Summary

    © 2018 American Chemical Society. 8-Quinolinolate is a monoanionic, hard, strongly σ-donating ligand that can form strong chelates with various metals. However, studies of the catalytic activities of soft transition metal complexes such as greater than second row, low-valent, late-transition metals having 8-quinolinolate ligands had not been well explored until recently. In recent years, several research groups including our own have studied and developed various reactions of terminal alkynes using rhodium(I) catalysts containing an 8-quinolinolate ligand. In this Perspective, we surveyed the transformations of terminal alkynes using 8-quinolinolato rhodium(I) catalyst such as additions of alcohols, amines, and thiols as well as polymerization, trimerization, dimerization, and alkyne/alkene [2 + 2] cycloaddition. Mechanistic studies based on theoretical calculations of hydroalkoxylation of alkynes and alkyne/alkene [2 + 2] cycloaddition reactions have also been described.

  • Developments of New Molecular Transformations Using Soft Transition Metal Catalysts Bearing a Hard Ligand


    Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research, Kakiuchi Fumitoshi, Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), No Setting

     View Summary

    In this research project, we have investigated developments of new catalytic reactions of terminal alkynes with nucleophilnes using quinolinolato-rhodium complexes as a catalyst. We synthesized a variety of rhodium complexes having a tridentate phosphine-containing quinolinolate ligand (PNO ligand). This (PNO)rhodium complexes showed a unique catalytic activity for reactions of terminal alkynes with nucleophiles such as amines. We used the (PNO)rhodium catalyst in a hydroaminative cyclization reaction of enynes with secondary amines. The reaction of 2-vinylphenylacetylenes with secondary amines gave 2-aminoindenes in good yields via hydroaminative cyclization. The reaction is considered to proceed via carbon-carbon bond formation on a catalytically generated aminocarbene ligand. To the best of our knowledge, this reaction is the first application of aminocarbene ligands catalytically generated in situ from organic substrates to carbon-carbon bond forming reactions.
