SOLVENT-FREE MICROWAVE MICHAEL ADDITION OF ISATIN AND ANILINE SCHIFF BASE OF ISATIN TO α,β-UNSATURATED ESTERS
The rapid, simple, microwave-assisted Michael addition of isatin and aniline Schiff base of isatin to a wide variety of alkyl and aryl acrylates in the presence of, tetrabutylammonium bromide (TBAB) and 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO), under solvent-free conditions, is presented. Under these conditions the addition of isatin to some of alkyl and aryl acrylates afford both related Baylis-Hillman adducts as minor products and the corresponding Michael adducts as major products. Addition of isatin to ethyl acrylate leads to produce Baylis-Hillman/Michael adduct in good yield. This system dose not work on Michael acceptors of methyl acrylate and methyl methacrylate.
