A novel regiospecific synthesis of 1-chloro-2-arylcyclohexenes.

1. Introduction

Cross-coupling reactions of unsaturated carbon centres bearing halogens/triflates with aryl boronic acids catalyzed by palladium metal complexes have become a powerful tool in organic synthesis for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. One of the important cross-coupling reactions in this genre is the Suzuki reaction [1-4]. These organopalladium complex catalyzed couplings of unsaturated halides with boronic acids/esters have been employed in key steps to form a wide variety of pharmaceuticals and natural products [510].

1,2-Dihalocycloalkenes are precursors to cycloalkynes [11, 12]. However, there are very few reports for the conversion of 1,2-dihalocycloalkenes to substituted 1-halo-2arylcycloalkenes. One report shows the chemoselective cross coupling of 2-bromo-3-chloronorbornadiene to 2-chloro-3aryl-norbornadiene [13]. In this regard, the Suzuki coupling reaction of cyclohexenyl bromides with arylboronic acids is still almost unexplored. A recent report shows its importance in the synthesis of polysubstituted phenol derivatives [14].

Our laboratory is involved in the synthesis and reactions of some novel cyclic vinyl silanes. We employ the Wurtz-Fittig coupling reaction of corresponding cyclic vinyl halide with sodium and chlorotrimethylsilane in suitable solvent to prepare the cyclic vinylsilanes. Using the Wurtz-Fittig reaction, we have been able to synthesize a large number of simple and substituted cyclic vinylsilanes [15-19]. The organosilicon compounds are anionic synthons serving as the starting materials in the total synthesis of natural products [20-23].

Cyclic vinyl halides and 1,2-dihalocycloalkenes serve as precursors to the cyclic vinylsilanes. There are several protocols for the preparation of cyclic vinyl halides and 1,2-dihalocycloalkenes [24]. The protocols for 1,2dihalocycloalkenes normally afford the two halogen atoms symmetrically attached to the carbon-carbon double bond [25, 26]. In comparison to the preparation of symmetrical 1,2-dihalocycloalkenes, there exist very few protocols for the synthesis of unsymmetrical 1,2-dihalocycloakenes especially 1-bromo-2-chlorocycloalkenes [27-31]. We had earlier adopted the addition reaction of bromine chloride to 1chlorocyclopentene followed by dehydrochlorination for the synthesis of 1-bromo-2-chlorocyclopentene [25].

In this paper, we report for the first instance the synthesis of 1-bromo-2-chlorocyclohexene (2) and the chemoselective Suzuki cross-coupling reaction with eleven different aryl boronic acids (3a-k) to form eleven novel 1-chloro-2arylcyclohexenes (4a-k) in high yields.

2. Materials and Methods

All reactions were performed in oven dried apparatus. Reactions were monitored on Merck F-254 precoated TLC plastic sheets using hexane (60-80[degrees]C) fraction as mobile phase. GC was run on SE-30 SS2 m x 1/8" column on Mayura 9800 gas chromatograph. IR spectra were recorded on Shimadzu FTIR 8400S using NaCl flats as neat thin liquid film samples. The values are reported in wave numbers ([cm.sup.-1]). [sup.1]H NMR and [sup.13]C NMR were obtained on a Bruker AMX400 spectrometer using CD[Cl.sub.3] with tetramethylsilane as internal standard.

Chemical shifts are reported in [delta] (ppm downfield from tetramethylsilane). Coupling constants are reported in Hz with multiplicities denoted as s (singlet), d (doublet), t (triplet), q (quartet), m (multiplet), and br (broad). GC-MS spectra were obtained using a Shimadzu GC-MS QP 5050A instrument equipped with a 30 mm x 0.32 mm BP-5 capillary column. Elemental analyses were obtained using Elementar Vario Microcube-15106062 instrument. All yields refer to the isolated yields of the products.

2.1. Synthesis of 1-Bromo-2-chlorocyclohexene (2). To a stirred suspension of P[Cl.sub.5] (1.4 g, 6.723 mmol) in 10 mL anhydrous ether was added a 10 mL ethereal solution of 1 (1.0 g, 5.525 mmol), dropwise over 30 min. The mixture was stirred for further 8 hours, when all the starting material disappeared as followed by GC. The reaction mixture was poured into crushed ice (50 g) and extracted with ether (3 x 30 mL). The combined organic extracts were washed with brine (20 mL), dried over anhydrous [Na.sub.2]S[O.sub.4], and concentrated in vacuo to isolate 1.05 g of concentrate.

To 0.63 g (5.614 mmol) of potassium tert-butoxide in 10 mL tert-butyl alcohol was added the 1.05 g of crude in 10 mL tert-butyl alcohol drop wise over 15 min and refluxed for 2 hours, when the aliquot indicated a single peak in gas chromatogram. The mixture was diluted with water (150 mL), extracted with ether (4 x 30 mL), washed with brine (20 mL), dried (an. [Na.sub.2]S[O.sub.4]), and concentrated. Distillation under reduced pressure gave pure 2 (0.62 g, 56%).

2.2. General Procedure for the Synthesis of 1-Chloro2-arylcyclohexenes (4a-k). A mixture of 1-bromo-2chlorocyclohexene 2 (196 mg, 1.0 mmol), aryl boronic acid (1.0 mmol), [K.sub.2]C[O.sub.3] (3.0 mmol), and Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] x C[H.sub.2][Cl.sub.2] (5 mol%) in 10 mL 1,4-dioxane was heated in a sealed tube placed in an oil bath at 70-80[degrees]C for 2-3 hr. The reaction mixture was cooled to ambient temperature and filtered, and the solvent was removed in vacuo. The crude product was then subjected to column chromatography using silica gel(60-100 mesh) and 1:10 ethyl acetate/hexane (60-80[degrees]C fraction) to isolate 4a-k in greater than 90% yield (Table 2).

3. Results and Discussion

Reaction of 2-bromocyclohexanone (1) 32-35] with P[Cl.sub.5] in anhydrous ether gave a mixture of chloro-compounds [26], which without further purification was subjected to dehydrohalogenation using potassium tert-butoxide/tert-butyl alcohol to isolate pure 2 in 50% overall yield from 1.

The nonsymmetrical 1-bromo-2-chlorocyclohexene 2 was subjected to the Suzuki cross-coupling reaction with phenyl boronic acid (3a) in the presence of palladium acetate catalyst [36]. The reaction however yielded biphenyl as the major product, instead ofthe expected cross-coupled product 1-chloro-2-phenylcyclohexene (4a).

Literature survey indicated several reports which show the use of differing palladium catalysts for the cross-coupling reactions. Some of the catalysts reported are Pd[(OAc).sub.2] [36], Pd[Cl.sub.2] [37], ([PPh.sub.3])2Pd[Cl.sub.2] [38], [([PPh.sub.3]).sub.4]Pd [39], Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] [40], and Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] x C[H.sub.2][Cl.sub.2] [41]. We employed all the above catalysts for the Suzuki cross-coupling reaction in an effort to prepare 1-chloro-2-arylcyclohexenes 4a-k (Table 1).

Our investigations have shown that the best catalyst for the cross-coupling reaction of 2 to be Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] x C[H.sub.2][Cl.sub.2] under inert nitrogen atmosphere and sealed tube conditions (Scheme 1).

In a typical reaction 2 (1mmol), phenylboronic acid 3a (1 mmol), potassium carbonate (3 mmol), and Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] x C[H.sub.2][Cl.sub.2] (5mol%) in 8-10 mL 1,4-dioxane solvent were heated on an oil bath at 80[degrees]C in a sealed tube for 3 hours. Monitoring using TLC and GC indicated the completion of reaction. The reaction mixture was filtered and subjected to column chromatography using silica gel (60-100 mesh) and 1: 10 ethyl acetate/hexane (60-80[degrees]C fraction) to isolate 4a in 95% isolated yield.

The reaction of 2 was extended to a wide variety of aryl boronic acids 3b-k to isolate the products 4b-k. Each coupling reaction was repeated for a minimum of three trials and the optimum yields of the products are indicated in Table 2. All products 4a-k were characterised completely by IR, [sup.1]H-NMR, [sup.13]C-NMR, GC-MS, and elemental analysis.

The mechanism for the formation of the 1-chloro-2arylcyclohexenes may be explained based on the bond dissociation energies of the carbon-bromine and carbonchlorine which are 289 and 335kJ [moL.sup.-1], respectively. In the first step, due to the lower bond energy between carbon and bromine, oxidative addition of the Pd(dppf)[Cl.sub.2] x C[H.sub.2][Cl.sub.2] catalyst to 2 occurs across the carbon-bromine bond. In presence of potassium carbonate/arylboronic acid 3a-k, the species eliminates KBr, C[O.sub.2], and KOB[(OH).sub.2] followed by reductive elimination of the 1-chloro-2-arylcyclohexene 4ak. The restored palladium catalyst further continues the cycle.

4. Conclusion

A general methodology for the regiospecific replacement of bromine in 1-bromo-2-chlorocycloalkenes and formation of some novel 1-chloro-2-arylcyclohexenes using the Suzuki cross-coupling reaction are reported. The method is simple and cost efficient and yields the 1-chloro-2-aryl-cyclohexenes in high yields in short duration of time.
