Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A novel one-step method for mildly converting cyclic ethers into dibromo compounds is reported. Alcohols, oximes, aldehydes, and ketones are known to react under Appel or Corey-Fuchs reaction conditions but, apparently, these have never been applied to oxetanes or larger cyclic ethers. Treatment of 3,3-dimethyloxetane (1) with tetrabromomethane and triphenylphosphine gave the corresponding dibromo compound 1,3-dibromo-2,2-dimethylpropane (2). The less-strained homologue oxolane (6) was also reacted giving 1,4-dibromobutane (7) in a 93% yield. Mechanistic interpretations are offered to explain the observed reaction rates and stereochemistry of the conversions described.
