Synthetic Studies on Jasmonoids(Ⅰ): Jasmone, Dihydrojasmone, and Tetrahydrojasmone
Woo Young Lee*, Yang Suk Lee, Se Young Jang, Sang Yong Lee
Facile and efficient syntheses of terpenic perfumeries cis-jasmone, dihydrojasmone, and tetrahydrojasmone have been investigated. Cis-jasmone was synthesized by successive metallation followed by alkylation of acetone N,N-dimethylhydrazone with (Z)-2-penten-1-yl tosylate (or 2-pentyn-1-yl tosylate) and propylene oxide in one flask to give a ketonic alcohol, which was oxidized to the corresponding diketone, followed by base-catalyzed intramolecular aldol condensation to give a regioselective cyclization product. Dihydrojasmone and tetrahydrojasmone could be conveniently obtained from 2-octanone. The dimethylhydrazone of the ketone was lithiated with butyllithium and reacted with propylene oxide to give a ketonic alcohol, which was oxidized to a diketone, followed by base-catalyzed intramolecular cyclization to afford dihydrojasmone. Tetrahydrojasmone was prepared by converting the ketonic alcohol into corresponding iodoketone, followed by base-catalyzed intramolecular cycloalkylation to furnish an odoriferous product.
