    Résumé : Podophyllotoxin is a natural product endowed of a high antimitotic activity and a high affinity for tubulin. Its action results in the cessation of cell division, inducing cell death. However, its high toxicity restrains its use as drug. To overcome this drawback, several chemical modifications of the native podophyllotoxin have been made. However, to date, no reports have so far been directed toward incorporation of a metallocene moiety. The search for new organometallic drugs is a central field in drug discovery, including the domain of cancer therapy. In particular, metallocenyl moieties are known to increase or decrease, depending on the degree of conjugation in the organometallic motif, the selectivity of drugs toward cancer cells. The conjugate organometallic compound reduces the damage of healthy tissues, yet permitting the selective desired antimitotic and cytotoxic effects of the active principle. We report here the synthesis of ferrocene-containing podophyllotoxin analogs and preliminary antiproliferative tests.

    Résumé : Lithium alkynyl(disilyl)zincates obtained from metalated ethynyloxiranes, as well as from N-tert-butanesulfinyl(ethynyl)aziridines or N-tert-butanesulfonyl(ethynyl)aziridines, undergo 1,2-migration of the organosilyl group with ring opening of the oxirane or aziridine ring by SNi displacement. A developed protocol that involves nBuLi for the metalation step offers a straightforward approach to the corresponding δ-oxy- and δ-amino α-silyl allenylzinc intermediates. The reagents derived from the epoxides are amenable to subsequent in situ condensation with aldehydes or ketones to provide 1,3-diols but not those derived from aziridines that only react sluggishly in similar condensations.

    Résumé : A study of the palladium(II)-catalyzed cyclization of unsaturated N-sulfonylamides was undertaken, using (diacyloxyiodo)benzenes as terminal oxidizing agents. Different reactivities were observed as a function of the nature of the unsaturation (terminal vs. internal), or of the hypervalent iodine compound used (diacetoxyiodobenzene vs. bistrifluoroacetoxyiodobenzene). Proper parameter selection allows the direction of the cyclization to be chosen towards either a global aminoacetoxylation, an allylic amination via aminopalladation, or an allylic amination via allylic C–H activation.

    Résumé : Core-shell nanogels are attractive stabilizers and supports for catalytically active metallic nanoparticles. Herein, we present the synthesis and the characterization of a nanostructured well-defined core-shell nanogel with the ability to stabilize palladium(0) nanoparticles in its core. This hybrid nanogel displays a remarkable stability in both solid state and in solution. This feature allowed its successful application as catalyst for the Mizoroki-Heck reaction between n-butyl acrylate and a series of bromo- and iodo-arenes. The yields spanned from good to excellent, and catalyst recycling could be achieved up to three times without significant activity loss. Three-phase tests indicated that the hybrid nanogel acts as a Pd(0) nano-reservoir. The catalysis proceeds in a quasi-homogenous fashion, with part of the catalytic activity occurring outside the nanogel explaining the observed limited recyclability.

  • F. Roudesly, J. Oble, et G. Poli, « Metal-catalyzed CH activation/functionalization: The fundamentals », Journal of Molecular Catalysis A: Chemical, vol. 426, Part B, p. 275-296.
    Résumé : An isolated CH bond in a molecule has a very low reactivity owing to the large kinetic barrier associated to the CH bond cleavage and the apolar nature of this bond. For this reason, the selective reactivity of such a non-functional group is under active study since several decades and is still regarded as the Holy Grail in chemistry. Metal-catalyzed CH activation/functionalization chemistry allows the step-economical and original construction of CC as well as CO and CN bonds starting from hydrocarbons (or hydrocarbon fragments) without the need of prior non catalytic oxidation steps. Furthermore, it can be of utmost importance in the domain of multistep syntheses, and also in transformations of societal significance such as the conversion of methane into methanol. This tutorial review addresses to students and researchers who would like to become acquainted with this fascinating topic. After a brief historical introduction, the main mechanistic fundaments of metal-catalyzed CH activation are exposed. Then, a selection of seminal advances and conceptual breakthroughs are presented.

    Résumé : The tandem 1,4-addition–aldol condensation reaction of diethylzinc, α,β-unsaturated chiral enantiopure oxazolidines derived from 2-phenylglycinol, and carbonyl compounds is disclosed. The reaction proceeds through a radical-polar crossover mechanism involving the aldol condensation of a trisubstituted zinc enolate through a Zimmerman–Traxler transition state. Installation of a 2-pyridine moiety at the hemiaminal position of the chiral auxiliary allows obtaining both excellent asymmetric induction and diastereoselectivity (up to >90 % de). The developed protocol is suitable for aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes, as well as ketones.

    Résumé : DFT calculations (PBE1PBE/6-31G(d,p), Def2-TZVPPD) were performed to study the intramolecular C–H amination of an unsaturated carbamate catalyzed by [Pd(LL)(OAc)2] (2), where LL is the bis(sulfoxide) ligand PhS(O)(CH2)2S(O)Ph. The coordination takes place by an associative path over a trigonal-bipyramidal transition state. The LL ligand undergoes a coordination shift from κ2S,S to κ1S, leaving an open position for binding of the substrate (C═C). In the next step, the C–H activation, the transition state for the hydrogen abstraction from the substrate to form the σ-allyl complex has an energy of 124.0 kJ mol–1, which is the highest energy in the whole mechanism (TOF-determining transition state). The σ-allyl converts easily in the π-allyl, the acetic acid molecule leaving the coordination sphere. The remaining acetate receives the second hydrogen from the NH group, while the newly formed acetic acid molecule is replaced by the pendant arm of the LL ligand, and the cyclization takes place (nucleophilic attack). During these changes, the metal is reduced to Pd(0) in the form of the Pd(0) complex of the oxazolidinone product, the most stable species in the cycle (TOF-determining intermediate). Either the C–H activation or the Pd(0) oxidation may be the step determining the energy span of the reaction, depending on reaction conditions.

    Résumé : Herein, we report the first catalytic version of a cobalt-catalysed reductive homocoupling of benzyl halides which proceeds with low catalyst loadings (0.5 to 5 mol%). By synthetizing each cobalt intermediate we demonstrate that reaction proceeds through two single electron transfers (SET) and that dimethylzinc is only involved in the regeneration of the catalytic species.

The reaction proceeds in the absence of reducing agents or additives, affording a range of substituted indoles and dihydropyrroloindoles in high yields and regioselectivities. With the aid of deuterium labeling studies and DFT (Density Functional Theory) calculations, a mechanism is proposed that is based on a Ligand-to-Ligand Hydrogen Transfer pathway.

    Résumé : A method to extend the scope of the aza-Piancatelli reaction between 2-furylcarbinols and anilines is depicted. We found that 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol (HFIP) is the solvent of choice for this transformation, as it outcompetes the usual solvents in terms of rate and yield. Side reactions and other issues raised by the title reaction are prevented, thereby providing an avenue to complex molecules that were previously inaccessible. Lewis acidity studies and computations were carried out to unveil the role of HFIP. Based on these results, we propose that HFIP is, in fact, acting as a Lewis acid and that its acidity can be enhanced when combined with a calcium(II) salt.

    Résumé : Selective product formation in the Pd-catalyzed cyclization of unsaturated amide and carboxylic acid derivatives is an intriguing and challenging task. We recently discovered that the oxidative intramo-lecular Pd(II)-catalyzed amination or oxylation of unsaturated N-sulfonyl carbamat

    es, N-sulfonyl carbox-amides and carboxylic acids takes place through the involvement of cyclic (usually, 5-or 6-membered) aminopalladated (AmPIs) or oxypalladated (OxPI) intermediates. Such cyclic intermediates can undergo a variety of transformations such as distocyclic β-H elimination, oxidative acetoxylation or intramolecular car-bopalladation, depending upon the substrate and/or the reaction conditions. In the absence of appropriate reaction pathways, the cyclic nucleopalladated intermediates (NuPIs) simply engage in an inconsequential equilibrium with the initial substrate and other transformations occur such as allylic C–H activation or, in the particular case of allyl carbamates, [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement.

    Résumé : The methylenation/hydrogenation cascade reaction of aldehydes or ketones through a domino process involving two ensuing steps in a single pot is realized. The compatibility of Matsubara's reagent and Wilkinson's complex give a combination that allows, under dihydrogen, the transformation of a carbonyl function into a methyl group. This new method is suitable to introduce an ethyl motif from aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes with total chemoselectivity and total retention of α-stereochemical purity. The developed procedure is also extended to the introduction of methyl groups from ketones.

The process follows a zinc-radical-transfer mechanism and provides vinylzinc adducts that can react subsequently with electrophiles. High levels of chiral induction (dr > 90:10) from the tert-butylsulfinyl directing group are achieved during the radical 5-exo-dig cyclization by adding samarium(III) triflate. The sequence overall provides straightforward modular access to enantiopure (E)-4-alkylidene-β-prolines from tert-butanesulfinamide.

    Résumé : ConspectusLactones and lactams are a well-known class of natural products and can be used as building blocks in organic synthesis. In addition, they can be found in many natural sources and synthetic drugs and have a broad range of biological or odorant properties. Chemists can create these useful compounds through palladium catalysis, which is a highly efficient tool for organic synthesis and is conveniently functional group tolerant. In this Account, we describe our work over the past 15 years in intramolecular Pd-catalyzed allylations where we have tethered the nucleophile and the electrophile by either an amide or an ester moiety, to produce ?-lactams and ?-lactones. We discuss in detail how the nature of the heteroatom tether influences the regioselectivity of the reaction. For example, a ketone [?C(O)CH2?] tether leads to mixtures of 5-exo and 7-endo cyclization products, while ester or amide [?C(O)X?] tethers afford sole 5-exo products. However, in the case of X = O, we were required to overcome two issues in the synthesis of ?-lactones. First of all, the tethering ester function can compete with the allylic leaving group in the oxidative addition to the Pd(0) center. Second, in this case, the proportion of the conformers that have a suitable geometry for cyclization is very low. When we insert a juxtaposed silyl group on the allyl fragment, the molecule can undergo oxidative addition and functionalization of the lactone via Hiyama cross-coupling.We also performed DFT calculations on these systems, which allowed us to better understand the behavior of [?C(O)X?] and [?C(O)CH2?] tethers. Computations also let us rationalize the different reactivities that we observed as a function of the geometry (Z or E) of the starting substrates. In addition, we were able to synthesize natural products or analogs (α-kainic acid, isoretronecanol, and picropodophyllin). We could turn these allylation reactions into asymmetric transformations and incorporate them into domino sequences. Thus, an allylation/Mizoroki?Heck sequence allowed us to straightforwardly access an aza-analog of picropodophyllin, as well as reach the lysergic acid backbone. Finally, we found that through carbopalladation of allenes, we could efficiently synthesize the key ?3-allylpalladium intermediates that were then ready for allylation reactions.

    Résumé : Although the Pd(II)-catalyzed alkene aminopalladation and allylic C-H activation have been much described in literature, the in-depth mechanism of such type of process is far from being a simple matter. This account focuses on the oxidative intramolecular Pd(II)-catalyzed amination of unsaturated N-sulfonyl carbamates and carboxamides, revealing that different mechanistic paths can be operative. In particular, after activation of the unsaturation by Pd(II) catalyst, aminopalladation can take place, affording the corresponding high-energy cyclic (5- or 6-membered) aminopalladated intermediate (AmPI). This latter can evolve along different pathways, such as: distocyclic beta-H elimination, oxidation by a strong terminal oxidant, or carbopalladation. Otherwise, the cyclic AmPI can lay dormant, in equilibrium with the initial substrate. In this case, alternative reactivities may take place, such as allylic C-H activation of the olefinic substrate, [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement, or decomposition.

    Résumé : The silylzincation of terminal ynamides is achieved through a radical-chain process involving (Me3Si)(3)SiH and R2Zn. A potentially competing polar mechanism is excluded on the basis of diagnostic control experiments. The unique feature of this addition across the CC bond is its trans selectivity. One-pot electrophilic substitution of the Csp2Zn bond by Cu-I-mediated CC bond formation and subsequent manipulation of the Csp2Si bond provides a modular access to Z-,-disubstituted enamides.

    Résumé : A comparative study of the metallotropic equilibrium between 1-chloro-3-(trimethylsilyl)propargyl and -allenyl metals was undertaken by means of lithio-, titano-, and zinco-carbenoids. The lithium and zinc species were shown to react mainly in their allenic metallotropic forms, whereas the titanium species proved to react in both its propargylic and allenic forms. The configurational stability of these organometallics was next examined using a modification of the Hoffmann test. In each case, the organometallic was reacted with a chiral enantiopure electrophile. A comparison of the diastereomeric ratios obtained at low and high conversion rates of the reagent allows assessment of its configurational stability. The lithium species thus exhibited a configurational lability at ?125 °C in Trapp mixture on the time scale of its reaction with (+)-camphor, while the titanium analogue proved to be configurationally stable at ?40 °C in THF/Et2O on the time scale defined by its reaction with (S)-N-tritylprolinal. In the context of its reaction with the same electrophile, the zinc bromide species was proven to be partially labile from ?80 °C in THF and its dynamic kinetic resolution was investigated.

    Résumé : In a mechanistically-oriented study, O-α-allenyl esters have been evaluated as potential substrates for Pd-catalyzed carbopalladation/allylic alkylation domino sequences and decarboxylative allenylation reactions. The domino sequence turned out to be feasible only with electron-deficient aryl iodides, thereby showing a narrower potential than that previously observed with the malonamide-based series. The decarboxylative allenylation of O-α-allenyl esters was also tested and turned out to be practicable with β-ketoester-based substrates and using specific basic conditions. Plausible reaction mechanisms are proposed to account for the observed reactivities.
