Abstract :

Cyclobutane derivatives show characteristic reactivities in organic reactions based on release of their high strained energy, and have been used as a useful C4 building block in organic synthesis. We found a new method for generation of 1,4-zwitterionic intermediates by Lewis-acid catalyzed ring cleavage of cyclobutanones which had a cation-stabilizing group at the 3-position.1 Regioselectivity for the ring cleavage was predicted and controlled by the structure of cyclobutanones. Formed 1, 4-zwitterionic intermediates reacted with compounds which had various types of unsaturated bonds such as C=C, Câ?¡C, C=O, C=N, Câ?¡N, N=N, N=O to give the corresponding six-membered compounds by formal [4+2] cycloaddition reaction.2,3 Reactions of the 1,4-zwitterionic intermediates with allenylsilanes and diene derivatives afforded seven- and eightmembered carbocyclic compounds by formal [4+3] and [4+4] cycloaddition reactions, respectively. Racemic total syntheses of thromboxane B2, bremazocine,4 and aspidospermidine5 were performed by using intra- and intermolecular cycloaddition of cyclobutanones. High reactivity of the zwitterionic intermediates for cycloaddition will be applicable to synthesis of multiply substituted cyclic compounds. Recent publications 1.

Biography :

Jun-ichi Matsuo received his PhD from Tokyo University under the direction of Prof. Kenji Koga and Prof. Sh?« Kobayashi (1999). After his Postdoctoral research, he became an Assistant Professor at Tokyo University of Science (Prof. Teruaki Mukaiyama) in 2000. In 2002, he moved to the Kitasato Institute (Prof. Teruaki Mukaiyama and Prof. Satoshi Õmura). He moved to Kanazawa University as an Associate Professor in 2005, and was promoted to a Professor in 2014. His research interests include discovery and development of new organic reaction methodology.
