Isocyanide based multicomponent reactions of oxazolidines and related systems.
6496 - 6507.
N-Alkyloxazolidines react in a multicomponent reaction with carboxylic acids and isocyanides to give N-acyloxyethylamino acid amides. The previously reported reaction conditions were improved using a design of experiments approach (DoE). Under the optimised conditions, good yields of the N-acyloxyethylamino acid amide products are obtained both via a three- or four-component approach from N-alkylethanolamines, aldehydes/ketones, isocyanides and carboxylic acids. The reaction of oxazolidines without a nitrogen substituent was found to give either the expected Ugi products or the N-acyloxyethylamino acid amides depending on the choice of reaction conditions. Optimised reaction conditions were also developed for the ring-expansion of oxazolidines to morpholin-2-ones via reaction with an isocyanide followed by hydrolysis. The mechanistic pathway of the multicomponent reaction was briefly investigated using an O-18 labelling experiment. The carboxylic acid component can be replaced by a range of other acidic nucleophiles including thiobenzoic acid, thiophenol or 5-phenyltetrazole, which are incorporated via an alternative pathway. These latter reactions can also be applied to 2-aminotetrahydrofurans, 2-aminotetrahydropyrans or 4-hydroxybut-2-one, further extending the structural diversity of the multicomponent reaction products.
