Convergent synthesis of 6-substituted phenanthridines via anionic ring closure

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Chemical equation presented The addition of organometallic derivatives to the cyano group of 2-(2-fluorophenyl)benzonitrile followed by intramolecular nucleophilic substitution produces 6-substituted phenanthridines. Alkyllithiums, aryllithiums, and sterically nondemanding lithium amides reacted at -78 °C to produce the 6-substituted phenanthridines in 82-98% yield upon warming to room temperature. The addition of the corresponding Grignard reagents requires an excess of the organometallic reagent and extented reaction times at elevated temperature.
