The versatile Knorr pyrrole synthesis is an important route to pyrroles it involves the condensation of a β-keto ester with an α-amino ketone An important pyrrole synthesis, known as the Knorr synthesis, is of the cyclizative condensation type.

Knorr pyrrole synthesis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The synthesie can be conducted under neutral or weakly acidic conditions. Meanwhile, Johnson had extended the Fischer-Fink synthesis by reacting 2-oximinoacetoacetate esters ethyl, benzyl, or tertiary-butylwith 3-alkyl substituted 2,4-pentanediones. The original Knorr synthesis employed two equivalents of ethyl acetoacetateone of pjrrole was converted to ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate by dissolving it in glacial acetic acidand slowly adding one equivalent of saturated aqueous sodium nitriteunder external cooling.

Saidi, Synlett, Even eynthesis have been successfully prepared, using the method. There are a number of important syntheses of pyrroles that are operated in the manner of the Knorr Synthesis, despite having mechanisms of very different connectivity between the starting materials and the pyrrolic product.


George Kleinspehn reported that the Fischer—Fink connectivity could be forced to occur exclusively, by the use of diethyl oximinomalonate in the synthesis, with 2,4-pentanedione, or its 3-alkyl substituted derivatives.

Preparation of Pyrroles G.

Aromatic Heterocyclic Formation – Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis

The two ester positions can be synthessi smoothly differentiated by incorporating benzyl or tert -butyl groups via the corresponding acetoacetate esters. Both of these products resulted from the loss of the acetyl group from the inferred ethyl 2-aminoacetoacetate intermediate. A synthesis of coproporphyrin III”. Hans Fischer and Emmy Fink found that Zanetti’s synthesis from 2,4-pentanedione and ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate gave ethyl 3,5-dimethylpyrrolecarboxylate as a trace byproduct.

Microwave mediated facile one-pot synthesis of polyarylpyrroles from butene- and butyne-1,4-diones H. One equivalent of sodium hydroxide will saponify the 2-ester selectively.

Paal-Knorr Pyrrole Synthesis

Comparison of the relative reaction rates of all substrates R: However, when unsymmetrical diketones were used, it was found that the acetyl group from the acetoacetamide was retained in the product, and one of the acyl groups from the diketone had been lost. Knorr’s pyrrole can be derivatized in a number of useful manners. The substituents also influence the basicity of the imine, with the nitro group leading to a more basic nucleophile.

Journal of the Chemical Society Resumed: The mechanism of the Knorr pyrrole synthesis begins with condensation of the amine and ketone to give an imine.

Site Search any all words Main Categories. Scheeren, Tetrahedron, 60 The nitro group has in every situation had a synthesi effect on the reaction rate. This reduction consumes two equivalents of zinc and four equivalents of acetic acid.


Ethyl and benzyl esters are easily made thereby, and the reaction is noteworthy in that even the highly hindered tert -butyl alcohol gives very high yields in this synthesis. It will proceed at room temperature. Journal of the American Chemical Society. Chemische Berichte in German.

The rates of cyclization have been compared using ammonia and methylamine. An pyrroe product of the Fischer-Fink synthesis was ethyl 4,5-dimethylpyrrolecarboxylate, made from ethyl 2-oximinoacetoacetate and 2-methyloxobutanal, in turn made by the Claisen condensation of 2-butanone with ethyl formate.

In Elderfield, Robert Cooley. The usual way of doing this is from the relevant oximevia the Neber rearrangement.

Any mechanism such as the following one that nkorr the formation of an enamine before the rate-determining step – the cyclization – must be ruled out.

An improved synthesis of ethyl pyrrolecarboxylate esters from diethyl aminomalonate”.
