Abstract [en]

This thesis concerned about the Ru-catalyzed C-H functionalizations on the synthesis of 2-arylindole unit, silylation of heteroarenes and preparation of aryne precursor.

In the first project, we developed the Ru-catalyzed C2-H arylation of N-(2-pyrimidyl) indoles and pyrroles with nucleophilic arylboronic acids under oxidative conditions. Wide variety of arylboronic acids afforded the desired product in excellent yield regardless of the substituents or functional group electronic nature. Electron-rich heteroarenes are well suited for this method than electron-poor heteroarenes. Halides such as bromide and iodide also survived, further derivatisation of the halide is shown by Heck alkenylation. In order to find catalytic on-cycle intermediate extensive mechanistic experiments have been carried out by preparing presumed ruthenacyclic complexes and C-H/D exchange reactions. It suggested that para-cymene ligand is not present in the catalytic on-cycle intermediate and we suspect that metalation occurs with electrophilic ruthenium center via SEAr mechanism.

In the second project, we developed the Ru-catalyzed silylation of gramine, tryptamine and their congeners using silanes as coupling partner. The transformation worked well with many different silanes. Regarding directing group, nitrogen atom containing directing groups are more favoured than the oxygen containing directing groups. Wide range of gramines and tryptamines also yielded the desired product in poor to excellent yield. At higher temperature, albeit in low yield, undirected silylation occurred. In order to get some insights about the reaction pathway of the silylation C-H/D exchange experiments were performed, and it revealed the possibility of C4-H activation of gramines by an electron rich metal- Si-H/D experiments showed Si-H activation by Ru is easy.

In the final project, we presented the closely related aryne precursors from arylboronic acids via Ru-catalyzed C-H silylation of arylboronates and their selective oxidation. Worthy of note, the aryne capture products obtained from arylboronic acids in a single purification.
