Synthesis of (η6-arene)tricarbonylchromium derivatives of 1,4-dihydro-3,1-benzoxazines


A series of (η6-arene)tricarbonylchromium derivatives of 1,4-dihydro-3,1-benzoxazines was synthesized and characterized. The compounds were obtained by two alternative methods, namely, by the reaction of triammine(tricarbonyl)chromium with 1,4-dihydro-3,1-benzoxazines (method A) and by the condensation of (η6-2-aminobenzyl alcohol)tricarbonylchromium with various aldehydes and ketones (method B). The composition and structure of obtained compounds were established by different physicochemical methods of analysis, such as HPLC, UV, IR, 1H NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and X-ray diffraction.
