Following Experiments


Preparation of stock acid: A 0.26 M solution of TfOH in toluene was prepared by mixing TfOH (~195 mg) in toluene (5 mL). It was assumed the TfOH contributed negligible volume.

KAB8-7: MNR10-1 (153.9 mg) was dissolved in toluene (32 mL) before the TfOH/toluene mixture (0.39 mL) was added at 12:30 at rt. The mixture was heated to 90 oC.

KAB8-8: The procedure was the same as for KAB8-7. MNR10-1 (94.8 mg), toluene (32 mL), TfOH/toluene (0.12 mL). Added at 12:35 at rt, before heated to 90 oC.

Aliquot 1 - 12:40
Aliquot 2 - 13:20

KAB8-8 taken off @ 12:50.
KAB8-7 taken off @ 13:25.

The reaction mixture was quenched with saturated sodium bicarbonate solution (50 mL) and the organic layer removed. The alkaline aqueous fraction was extracted with EtOAc (3 x 30 mL). The organic layers were combined, dried over magnesium sulfate, filtered, then concentrated under reduced pressure to give the crude products.

NOTES 30/01/12
- KAB8-8 with the lower catalyst loading probably finished first because of the way I added the acid. The acid solution was added into the MNR10-1/toluene solution with a long needle. The KAB8-7 acid was added to the flask, but not directly into the solution.
- The KAB8-8 mixture went to temperature faster; reached temperature in less than 2 min. The KAB8-7 reaction mixture did not reach 90 C. The reaction was quenched at ~80 C.
