Combes quinoline synthesis pdf The Combes quinoline synthesis is a chemical reaction, which was first reported by Combes in It involves the condensation of unsubstituted anilines 1. Therefore, the synthesis of quinoline derivatives attracted many researchers and. Friedlander annulations are one of the simplest and most straightforward.

The newly formed oxide is then twice protonated to form the Schiff base , which then undergoes keto-enol tautomerization before an electrocyclic ring closing. Furthermore, the type of solvent used is very important to ensuring high yields of the 4-hydroxyquinoline product.
With much of the literature on the synthesis of quinolines , there is some discrepancy on whether a substituted 4-hydroxyquinoline or a substituted 4-quinolone is the final product of the Conrad—Limpach synthesis.
Although the reaction product is often shown as a hydroxyquinoline the enol form , it is believed that the quinolone keto form predominates. For the purposes of this page and based on the reaction mechanism as it is shown in Name Reactions: A Collection of Detailed Mechanisms and Synthetic Applications by Ji Jack Li, the product is a hydroxyquinoline. The reaction then continued to give the final product of 4-hydroxyquinoline.
Continuation of this reaction using the Conrad-Limpach mechanism led to the synthesis of 2-hydroxyquinoline. Applications[ edit ] The synthesis of 4-hydroxyquinolines and 4-quinolones is of great importance to a variety of fields, but most notably to the medical sciences due to their use as chemotherapeutic bactericidal drugs through their ability to kill bacteria. The majority of drugs in clinical use are actually quinoline derivatives that belong to the subset fluoroquinolones, which have a fluorine atom attached to the central ring system, often at the C-6 or C-7 position.

An intramolecular proton transfer is followed by an E2 mechanism , which causes a molecule of water to leave. Deprotonation at the nitrogen atom generates a Schiff base , which tautomerizes to form an enamine that gets protonated via the acid catalyst, which is commonly concentrated sulfuric acid H2SO4. The second major step, which is also the rate-determining step , is the annulation of the molecule. Immediately following the annulation , there is a proton transfer, which eliminates the positive formal charge on the nitrogen atom.
