Exchange Kinetics of Quinolinyl Ketones with Boronic Acids Via Rhodium Catalyzed C-C Bond Activation
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 14, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:30pm
Carbon-carbon Ï? bond activation is difficult due to the strength of the Ï? bond and the steric hindrance around the bond. Using a quinolinyl ketone system, however, activation can be achieved with a rhodium catalyst, allowing not only carbon-carbon Ï? bond activation, but also functionalization using boronic acids. The exchange of aryl substituents between quinolinyl ketones and boronic acids, proceeding through carbon-carbon Ï? bond activation, is the subject of a kinetic study. NMR and kinetic studies are used to determine the rate law of the reaction using ortho-fluoro quinolinyl ketone and 4-trifluoromethyl boronic acid. NMR studies are used, in addition, to compare the rates of various aryl substituents of both boronic acids and quinolinyl ketones to ortho-fluoro quinolinyl ketone and 4-trifluoromethyl boronic acid exchange.
