Synthesis of New Polyfluoroalkyl-Containing Pyrones, Pyridones and Pyrido[1,2-a]benzazoles from Fluorinated β-Alkoxyenones
Synthesis , 2007, 24, 3797-3806
Fluorinated enones were reacted with thiazoles, imidazoles, benzimidazoles and benzthiazoles bearing methylene groups activated by electron-withdrawing substituents. The reactions start with a nucleophilic attack of the methylene carbon on the β-position of the enones. If the starting methylene compound contains a thiazole ring, pyrones or pyridones were formed due to participation of the ester or nitrile groups. In other cases, imidazo-, benzimidazo- or benzthiazo-pyridines were obtained by participation of the nitrogen atom of the corresponding azole rings. In addition to the final products, some primary products were isolated or proved as intermediates.
