Application of 24599-58-4,Some common heterocyclic compound, 24599-58-4, name is 2,5-Dimethoxytoluene, molecular formula is C9H12O2, traditional synthetic route has been very mature, but the traditional synthetic route has various shortcomings, such as complicated route, low yield, poor purity, etc, below Introduce a new synthetic route.
2-Bromo-5-methylcyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-dione (23). To a solution of toluquinol (1) (2.5 g, 20.14mmol,1.0 equiv.) in acetone (15 mL) was added K2CO3 (14 g, 100.70 mmol, 5.0 equiv.) and Me2SO4 (5.7 mL,60.41 mmol, 3.0 equiv.) and the reaction mixture was stirred for 3 h. After this time, the reactionmixture was diluted with water and the aqueous phase was extracted with Et2O. The organic phasewas washed with brine, dried over MgSO4, filtered, and the solvent removed under reduced pressureto obtain the corresponding dimethoxy derivative (~20 mmol), which was used in the next stepswithout purification. To a solution of the dimethoxy derivative obtained above (~20 mmol) and NaOAc(3.3 g, 40.28 mmol, 2.0 equiv.) in AcOH (20 mL) was added bromine (1.2 mL, 2.15 mmol, 1.1 equiv.)over 25 min and, after the addition, the reaction mixture was stirred for 1 h. Then, the reaction mixturewas quenched by a slow addition of a saturated aqueous NaHCO3 solution at 0 C. The aqueousphase was then extracted with EtOAc and the organic phase washed with brine, dried over MgSO4,ltered, and the solvent removed under reduced pressure to obtain the corresponding bromo derivative(~20 mmol), which was used in the next step without purication. The bromo derivative obtainedabove (~20 mmol) was dissolved in CH3CN (35 mL). Then, CAN (28 g, 50.34mmol, 2.5 equiv.) and H2O(20 mL) were added and the reaction mixture was stirred for 1 h at 25 C. After this time, the reactionmixture was diluted with water and the aqueous phase was extracted with Et2O twice. The combinedorganic phases were washed with brine, dried over MgSO4, filtered, and the solvent removed underreduced pressure. The residue was purified by flash column chromatography (silica gel, 1% EtOAc inhexanes) to obtain compound 23 (1.5 g, 37% over 3 steps) as an orange solid : Rf = 0.45 (silica gel,20% EtOAc in hexanes); 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3) delta 7.29 (s, 1 H), 7.26 (s, 2 H), 2.08 (d, J = 1.6 Hz,3 H); 13C NMR (100 MHz, CDCl3) delta 185.1, 179.5, 146.5, 138.1, 137.5, 132.6, 15.7.
These compound has a wide range of applications. It is believed that with the continuous development of the source of the synthetic route 2,5-Dimethoxytoluene, its application will become more common.
