Methyl 3-Phenylpropionate Uses

Methyl 3-phenylpropionate is utilized as a pharmaceutical intermediate and also in organic synthesis.

Preparation of Methyl 3-Phenylpropionate

Technique 1: In a 50 mL polytetrafluoroethylene-lined reaction pot, include 4 mL methanol, 0.3 mmol styrene, and 0.1 g of 0.15 wt% Ru/CeO2 stimulant respectively, include magnets, full of 0.5 MPa carbon monoxide, seal, and The reaction was stirred at 180 ° C for 12 hours. After the response was finished, the product was characterized by mass spectrometry and evaluated by gas chromatography.

Method 2. Methylation reactions are not just related to biological procedures, but also play a crucial role in the functionalization of biologically energetic molecules in synthetic chemistry. Traditional methylating reagents include methyl iodide, dimethyl sulfate, methyl p-toluenesulfonate and diazomethane. Although these methylating reagents are efficient, they are often unstable, hazardous or highly harmful. CN201811224832.6 reports that methyl trifluoroacetate is utilized as a green and eco-friendly reagent to respond in the presence of a base to obtain the equivalent methylated item.

Prep Work of Methyl 3-Phenylpropionate
Include phenylpropionic acid (100 mg, 0.67 mmol), DMF (4 mL), and potassium tert-butoxide (224 mg, 2.0 mmol, 3eq.) right into the reaction flask in sequence, and mix for 5 minutes at room temperature up until the potassium tert-butoxide is equally distributed. After dispersion, gradually infuse methyl trifluoroacetate (0.27 mL, 2.7 mmol, 4 eq.) right into the reaction container. After 4 hours of reaction, the tender loving care spot plate shows that the raw product place disappears and the mixing is stopped. Extract twice with ethyl acetate and distilled water, then clean with saturated NaCl solution, incorporate the organic stages, dry the organic phases over anhydrous magnesium sulfate, filter to get rid of the magnesium sulfate, rotating evaporate the solvent, and detoxify by column chromatography to acquire anemic liquid styrene. Acid methyl ester (80 mg, yield 73%). HNMR (400 MHz, CDCl3) δ7.30 (d, = 7.0 Hz, 2H), 7.22 (d, = 7.8 Hz, 3H), 3.70 (s, 3H), 2.98 (t, = 7.8 Hz, 2H), 2.66 (t, = 7.9 Hz, 2H); C NMR (100MHz, CDCl3) δ173.32, 140.54, 128.52, 128.29, 126.29, 51.58, 35.71, 30.97.
