Synthesis and Retrosynthesis of Peptidomimetic Inhibitors - Thrombin
Carbonyl compounds having an -hydrogen act as weak (protic) acids and react with a base to yield enolate anions.
Presence of neighbouring carbonyl group increases the acidity of a ketone over an alkane by a factor of 1040! The use of such enolate anions from carbonyl compounds is fundamental to organic synthesis and you will already have met them as intermediates in the Aldol reaction and Claisen condensation.When we have two carbonyl groups adjacent to a methylene group, the acidity of the -H is greatly increased. Because of the acidity of their methylene (CH2) hydrogens, malonic esters, ethylacetoacetate and -dicarbonyl compounds etc are often called active hydrogen compounds.1)They are readily made and cheap2)The anion can be generated quantitatively3)Self condensation does not occur with 1 mole of base – OH is deprotonated4)The site of deprotonation is unambiguous5)The enolate ions formed on deprotonation can be alkylated and acylated offering useful products.Example:Most important use is for preparation of ketones (from -keto esters RCOCH2CO2Et) and of acids from malonic esters (CH2(CO2R)2).Note:
So Retrosynthesis:Note: FGI’s can be carried out on intermediates/products.Note especially:Helps in the synthesis of 1,3 diols.e.g.Usually uses weak base/weak acid as catalyst, (R2NH/HOAc). Any combination of stabilising groups can be used (CN, CO2Et etc).Carbanions derived from active methylene compounds react with-unsaturated compounds by 1,4-(conjugate) addition known as Michael addition.
We have discussed the regioselective reactions of this active methylene carbon (C-2) in ethylacetoacetate. Can regiospecifically trap C-4 via the dianion.Carbonyl Addition and Carbonyl Substitution – Aldol and Claisen Reactions.Usually self-condensations, these reactions combine nucleophilic attack and -substitution as the first step.Note the Aldol condensation can also be performed with acid catalysis in which dehydration usually follows (enol form is involved – mechanism p 773). NB dehydration drives the reaction when the equilibrium is unfavourable.
Note: the only difference between the Aldol and Claisen reaction is the fate of the tetrahedral intermediate – Claisen expels alkoxide, Aldol alkoxide is protonated.These are not very useful generally as there are four potential products. However, they can be useful if one component has no -H.Mixed AldolMixed Claisen CondensationsOnly successful when one of the ester components has no -H e.g.
