      Safrole -> MDP2Pol -> MDP2P  Bookmark   

Hi!


I have read a lot of posts on the Safrole -> MDP2Pol -> MDP2P synth using sulfuric acid hydration followed by ammonium nitrate and some cuprous catalyst. None of them seem to agree. Does anyone have a definite answer on the reaction? Does it work at all or is it BS?

Thanks!

Regards
Peter

There are no theoretical obstacles to the method in question, but I don't know of anyone who have succeeded in practice with it.

But what of tBOC's write-up on your page - it seems to bee very practical... Was it a fake? Did he fail eventually? How did you know?

Please, elaborate - sad news for me, i used to put much hope into that method...

I'll believe in it when some reliable bee post he did it, and worked, and the ketone was aminated and the product had at least the correct melting point. May be it works and we are so silly, but I've not seen a good reason to try it, specially after seeing all the fiascos in mdp2pol with dichromates, dual phase etc... it supposedly worked for some bees, but...

I have to agree, if we've all been fucking around using up expensive PdCl2, etc if this method proves viable then perhaps we should all be sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on our heads.  The fact remains however that if this method is ever GOING to work it's going to require some research and a bunch of trial and error.  Now luckily we have access thru the hive to a LOT of notes on the subject, if we can wade thru them and pick out the really relivent bits then perhaps this method will in the future lead to un-Godly amounts of honey being produced easily and safely and without alot of eviromental impact...

I think the cold H2SO4 route has been proven to produce the MDP2Pol, as long as the temp is kept down and one doesn't try to distill it(thanks Brightstar).  Have any of the MDP2Pol --> MDP2P routes been proven...?  I've seen examples with AA and cupric salts as well as a purposed route with Permaganate, but I've seen nothing conclusive as to the outcomes, sure Tboc said it worked as did a couple others, but when asked questions about it they quickly disapeared...

The problem is that some bees have reported success, but that the success wasn't measured with any analytical equipment, and only one or two unknown bees said the produced ketone aminated fine to a working amine. But then again, several who have tried it have failed.

I think my cat might give the synth a whirl this forthcoming week. Any suggestions on how to test the products? Is it not the common practise to check for sec ketones using 2,4-Dinitrophenylhydrazine and the primary using fehlings? I have no access to nmr, MS etc. Perhaps some TLC will be possible.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks!

If you make an hydratation using only conc. H2SO4, your product cannot be only MDP2Pol. The best way is oxymercuriation/demercuriation using first HgSO4/H2SO4, then NaBH4.

The reason is: there will be appreciable rearrangement of the secondary carbocation that safrole will form when a H+ attack the double bond.

Ar-CH2-CH=CH2 + H+ ==> Ar-CH2-CH+-CH3 ==> Ar-C+(CH3)2 =(H2O)=> Ar-CHOH(CH3)2 + H+

This is a bad stuff.

Im aware that the final MDPxPol intermediate is a mixture of MDP1Pol/everything else and MDP2Pol. I will just have to live with this. If i carefully keep the temerature of the mixture around zero degrees celcius, do you have any idea of the ratio of the two compounds? 80:20 i can live with.

How about the final oxidation using ammonium nitrate, do you have any comments on this one?

Thanks, my cat really appereciates your feedback before he gets going!

Got this ref from rhodiums page:

R-C(OH)-R' + 2 Cu(OAc)2 ==> R-CO-R' + 2 CuOAc + 2 AcOH

2 CuOAc + NH4NO3 + 2 AcOH ==> 2 Cu(OAc)2 + NH4NO2 + H2O

NH4NO2 == H+ ==> N2 + 2 H2O

And abbreviated to one line:

R-C(OH)-R' + NH4NO3 == Cu(OAc)2/AcOH ==> R-CO-R' + 3 H2O + N2

Well, N2 is formed, and this is a VERY stable compound, so the equilibrium will be totally moved to right, and I think this rxn will work very well. Le Chatelier docet

OK, i need a verdict on what my cat should do, as it is not sure here.

a) Be a post-pioneer and try out the Safrole->MDP2Pol->MDP2P using the H2SO4 and ammonium nitrate oxidizer and post results?

b) Be boring and go with the safrol->isosafrol->MDP2P using the peracetic acid method and a lot of vacuum?

By the way, if the cat choose to go the b way... Any commenst on the safrole + CaO + KOH -> isosafrole reaction? Can KOH be substituted with NaOH??

Either way, the cat will post what it finds out!

THANKS!

I think the cat will choose A for starters... But if/when it fails it sure will go for B.

There are just a few unanswered questions for this method. When refluxing the glycol(made from peracetic actid and isosafrole) in methanol and sulfuric acid(to obtain the ketone), is it possible to substitute the methanol with ethanol, as methanol is quite impossible to obtain?

Thanks!

On ../rhodium/chemistry /peracid.html there is written MeOH, because, I suppose, the glycol is much better soluble in MeOH than in EtOH, or using MeOH reflux is at a lower temperature, but I dunno. Try to ask to Rhodium, the Chief...

Or do both! If you do (B) first, a known good procedure, then you will have a reference sample of MDP2P. Then when you try (A) you will be able to compare.

Can you get TLC plates? Even if you can't get TLC plates you could probably use paper chromatography instead to compare your products from the two procedures. With the MDP2P from procedure (B) you could even prepare some MDP2P-ol by reduction to check the first step of procedure (A) again via paper chromatography.

OK, i can see that would be a smart move! Now what is the best euluent for the TLC? For the amine salt, i would use EtOH/AcOH 80:20 perhaps? What about the ketone, what should be used in that case?

If I'm not mistaken, the trouble comes in when folks try to do the oxidation step.  Any temp increase seems to fuck the yield by rearranging the p2pol to p1pol. 

What are some good cold oxidation techniques?  We have the am.nitrate, pot.permanganate, and ca.hypochlorite.  What others exist that will operate at even lower temps, perhaps using H2O2 or something like that????

Pyridinium chlorochromate/methylene chloride at room temperature oxidizes MDP2P-ol to MDP2P in good yield.

I am skeptical about this 2-ol to 1-ol rearrangement bugaboo. I did not notice a problem with MDP2P-ol produced via oxymercuration/NaBH4 reduction. If there was going to be a problem with rearrangement of the 2-ol to 1-ol then it would seem to me that it would occur during the hydration with sulfuric acid not later. ... Actually, perhaps this explains a different version of the 2-ol to 1-ol story that I have heard here - that pure 2-ol is unstable and spontaneously converts, in a few hours, to 1-ol
A different explanation for the observation that 2-ol is highly unstable would be that 2-ol was never produced.

I must confess to not being familar with using sulfuric acid to hydrate an olefin. Are there any known examples where this is used commercially? How about a published example of this procedure in say Vogel or Organic Syntheses?

In an acidic environment the alcohol will rearrange to the most stable carbocation, therefore, any acidic method that gets you to MDP2Pol is going to go like a shot to MDP1Pol.  However this alcohol, when oxidized to give the ketone, (at the carbon next to the benzene ring) can be reductively aminated, one would think to give, MALPHA   (found in PIHKAL), which is active.  So maybe tBoc made MALPHA

      Re:Safrole -> MDP2Pol -> MDP2P - about hydratation  Bookmark   

The Problem with using the ammonium nitrate to oxidise the alcohol is that the heat required to propogate the reaction and causes the rearrangement to the p1p.the p2p is still produced but unless you are able to seperate the p1p\p2p it will not be acceptable for animation.  on the other hand you could prepare a jones regent of sodium dicromate/sulfuric acid and do the oxidation procedure at 0.c to obtain a high yeild of ketone.

What about KMnO4 oxidation using acid or base as catalyst? I know from the Cat synth, that it does not require heat...

Neutral or basic KMnO4 would be needed, acid KMnO4 would overoxidize the side chain.

Does any one have any idea how far the saforle to mdp2pol can be scaled up.  Swijm thinks that it could be scaled up to industrial sizes with internal cooling duirng. the acid addition. Swim has gotten ketone before from the from the amonium nitrate but it did not animate. he suspects it was the p1p ketone caused when acetone was used for the solvent in the oxidation. it had to evaporate all  of the acetone out before the reaction would start and the temp was held to high for too long and rearrangement occoured..does any one know of the proper syenthesis of a jones regent with acetone, and the condition needed for the oxiditation to occour.  i have a organic chem textbook that says that that is the best way to go to oxidise a secondary alcohol to a ketone.  i have been studying this method for over a year and i believe that it will one day produce a high yeild of crystals.  The theoretical yeild of the reaction is very high.  I see no reason that a  0. oxidation, with a jones regent would produce high yeilding ketone.  hte suspected P1P ketone had a distinctive cardemon smell and it caused a temp increse to the point of reflux in an AL?HG nitro reduction.  I think he could have failed with the A/B but he also did not remove the d\DCM with vacume this temp increase could have caused enough rearrangment that it was not suitable for reduction....

Before attempting to scale it up, we must first devise a fool-proof way of performing the procedure on a small scale.

What was causing your reflux temperature was prob the nitromethane, remember it's getting reduced at the same time...

Swim has reduced nitromethane by it's self and it did not produce as much heat. i was under the impression that way back, Eulisis well documented the procedure with proper product analysis. and even promoted synths to various other compounds. Does any one remember this.  How bout the jones regent preperation,  just need a procedure chems known.

Oh no, not this bad memory!  SWIM played with this method too much and got absolutely no product.  I really can't be bothered to say it again so just click on my username and view my posts on the subject.  When i think of all the wasted sassafras oil it makes me want to cry!
SWIM could not figure out exactly why it didn't work out but I can say that as stated by tBOC it doesn't work.  Even with many modifications SWIM couldn't get it to work.  The first real product that SWIM got was after using the oxone method (Chromic's write-up, totally otc).  Don't expect to get a bunch of MDMA from this.  For research however, I would be very interested in getting to the bottom of this. 
This research might mean wasting a bunch of safrole in the process so be warned. 
Please don't make my mistakes.  If you are going to play with this don't simply follow the recipies, do some real investigation.
good luck!
