Synthesis of N-aryl-substituted pyrroles via γ-bromodypnone

  • L. M. Potikha
  • V. A. Kovtunenko


A series of 1-aryl-2,4-diphenylpyrroles were obtained by the reaction of 4-bromo-1,3-diphenyl-2-buten-1-one (γ-bromodypnone) with substituted anilines in the presence of sodium acetate. In the reaction with di-and trimethylenediamines the corresponding 1,2-and 1,3-di(N-pyrryl)alkanes were obtained.
