NaOH-Promoted Chemoselective Cascade Cyclization of Cyclopropyl Esters with Unsaturated Imines: Access to Bioactive Cyclopentacpyridine Derivatives.

Summary of "NaOH-Promoted Chemoselective Cascade Cyclization of Cyclopropyl Esters with Unsaturated Imines: Access to Bioactive Cyclopentacpyridine Derivatives."

A chemoselective cascade cycloaddition reaction is developed for green and efficient access to cyclopenta[c]pyridine derivatives. Simple and inexpensive NaOH is used as the sole catalyst for this process. The δ-carbon of cyclopropyl ester is activated as a nucleophilic carbon to initiate highly chemoselective cascade reactions. Cyclopenta[c]pyridines bearing various substituents are afforded in excellent yields. Preliminary studies on the bioactivities of the afforded products show promising antibacterial activities for potential applications in plant protections.
