Default Bromination of methoxy acetophenone?



Hello all

Anyone got any good references for the bromination of methoxy anisoles: I
want to brominate the acetophenone but I suspect the usual conditions will
remove the methyl group. I found a reference to the reaction below but the
yield was below 50 % T and it had column chromatography as a work up.

Reaction in smiles:- COC1=CC=CC=C1C(C)=O plus bromine giving
COC1=CC=CC=C1C(CBr)=O

Any leads appreciated and I'm open to a discussion as to methylating the
phenol post bromination.

Thanks ... Darren.

ps for those unfamilliar with smiles:- [Only registered users see links. ]

You may want to use NBS (N-bromosuccinimide) or dibromohidantoine
(very similar to NBS, but has 2 active bromines per molecule). Those
reagents do not produce HBr.

Now, you can brominate both the methyl ketone part or the
methoxy-phenyl ring. De-methylation should not be a problem with NBS.
What gets brominated may be controlable by the used reaction
conditions.

I cannot read SMILE notation. What isomer do you have (o, m, p-
methoxy?)
Where do you want to brominate - methylketone or the ring? If ring,
where to?

Hi Muhammar

Thanks for the reply. I've used dibromohydantoin a couple of times in the
past. I'll look into the conditions necessary to use this reagent ...

If you cut and paste the smiles string into the daylight webpage
[Only registered users see links. ] you'll see the structure of the
compound. However, I posted the structure simply to illustrate the point
rather than to give the structure of the actual compound that I am thinking
about preparing.

Darren.
