The reactions of some 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds with 9-benzylidene-9-H-fluorene derivatives in the presence of manganese(III)acetate and ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) were searched. 9-benzylidene-9-H-fluorene compounds form mainly [2+3] dipolar cycloaddition products such as dihydrofuran and lactone which are spirally attached to the C-9 position of flourene ring with manganese(III)acetate and oxidative addition products with CAN. The best yield of cyclization products was obtained from the reaction between 2c and 1a-c in both oxidants. The stereochemistry of the products 3d, 4d and 5d was only transformed which has coupling constant 13 Hz.
Keywords: 9-benzylidene-9H-fluorene, cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate (CAN), manganese(III) acetate, radicalic oxidation, β-dicarbonyl compounds, b-dicarbonyl compounds, flourene, β-ketoester, β-ketoamide, β-diketones, Methoxyl
