Continuous flow chemistry was applied for the derivatization of alkylthiophene building blocks. The advantages of reaction automation and scale-up were demonstrated for selective lithiation-borylation and Knoevenagel condensation of thiophene derivatives. These synthetic approaches allow facile and rapid access to monomer and dyes for organic electronic applications.

Raney-Ni/EtOH reduction of different N-sulfonylimines provides a new entry for synthesizing sulfonamides in good yields under mild conditions. This protocol, which does not require additional hydrogen, constitutes a cheap, safe, and easy-to-handle alternative procedure to prepare α-branched sulfonamides.

Two methods were investigated for the preparation of six chiral α-bromonitriles with different optic purities. The nitrous deamination of amino acids gives α-bromoacids, which react with chlorosulfonyl isocyanate followed by triethylamine to afford α-bromonitriles with moderate enantiomeric excess. However, the dehydration of corresponding α-bromoamids using thionyl chloride gives α-bromonitriles with good enantiomeric excess up to 94%. The use of phosphoryl chloride instead of thionyl chloride results in more than 30% racemization as determined by high-performance liquid chromatograpic analysis.

Synthesis of Quinolines Using Nano-Flake ZnO as a New Catalyst under Solvent-Free Conditions

M. Hosseini-Sarvari, Department of Chemistry, College of Science, Shiraz University, Shiraz, 71454, Iran

     Catalytic activity of nano-flake ZnO for synthesis of quinoline derivatives and their related polyheterocycles under solvent-free conditions has been studied. Nano-flake ZnO has been successfully synthesized by conventional heating of a solution approach using ZnOAc.2H2O and Urea. This method is simple, cost-effective, and environmentally benign and the catalyst can be reused for several times.

 A collection of smart multicomponent reactions (MCRs) with continuative post condensation cyclizations (PCCs) is presented to construct conventional three- to seven-membered heterocyclic compounds in diversity oriented syntheses (DOS). These will provide a high degree of applying economical and ecological advantages as well as of practicability. Water, ionic liquids, and solvent-less syntheses as well as use of various forms of energy as microwave and ultrasonic irradiation are examined and discussed.

The continuing use of microwave (µwave) energy in chemical synthesis has been impressive over the past decade, with many reports incorporating µwave-based reactions. Two of the major benefits of using µwave heating are the remarkable decrease in reaction times and often high yield of products in comparison with classical heating, an ideal technology for synthetic chemists. Herein, we highlight some exciting examples of its recent utility in organic, medicinal, and natural product synthetic endeavours.
