Attempts to sort out the problems of the Newman-Kwart Rearrangement using a microwave assisted procedure

MNR20-20%20scheme.png

Hazard and Risk Assessment:
As for HIRAC-MNR17

Procedure
MNR20-9

MNR19-1 (75 mg, 0.16 mmol) was placed in a microwave tube, sealed and heated with 300 W at 200 °C for 20 minutes.

Reaction could not get to temperature and starting material did not react. Not enough in the tube to absorb the microwaves? Need to scale up production of starting material.

Procedure
MNR20-10

A combination of MNR19-1, MNR19-2 and MNR19-3 (1.140 g, 2.47 mmol) was placed in a microwave tube, sealed and heated with 300 W at 200 °C for 20 minutes.

Again, the reaction could not get to temperature and starting material did not react. There was plenty in the tube this time. Need to look into other routes for carrying out this step, ie solvent based approach.

1H NMR MNR20-10 99 % starting material recovered (1.134 g)
