Mn(OAc)(3) catalyzed intermolecular oxidative peroxycyclization of naphthoquinone

Abstract : Manganese(III) acetate-mediated peroxycyclization between 2-hydroxy-3-methylnaphthoquinone and various alkenes was performed to obtain dihydronaphtho[2,3-c][1,2] dioxine-5,10(3H, 10aH)-diones. The reactivity of symmetrical or unsymmetrical 1,1-disubstituted alkenes and monosubstituted alkenes allowed the synthesis of more than 50 original molecules. Focusing on the excellent reactivity of 2-hydroxy-3-methylnaphthoquinone, we describe the first example of Mn(OAc)(3) reactivity with nitro-substituted alkenes. The scope, limitations and stereochemistry of the products synthesized are discussed. Starting from monosubstituted alkenes, the instability of a pair of diastereoisomers was observed, leading to ring opening.
