Abstract

This review reports some novel (or improved) synthetic methods for preparing a number of aromatic (carbocyclic and predominantly heterocyclic) organomercurials, particularly those derived from theophylline, theobromine and uracil, as well as some novel halo- and cyano-demercuration reactions. We have also synthesized the first stable organic derivative of mercury(I), viz. 1,8-bis(acetoxydimercurio) theobromine, and studied its novel reactions. We have also improved the old Willgerodt method (1897), applicable for preparing various diaryliodonium chlorides from appropriate (dichloroiodo)arenes and symmetric aromatic mercurials. A full list of our works, published over the past twenty years (1980-2000), is also provided (see Refs. 1-16).
Keywords: heteroaromatic organomercurials; halo-demercuration reactions; cyanodemercuration reaction; heteroaromatic halides and nitriles heteroaromatic organomercurials; halo-demercuration reactions; cyanodemercuration reaction; heteroaromatic halides and nitriles
