In this study, we have developed the synthesis of thieno[2,3-b]indole dyes via a multicomponent reaction of cheap and available reagents such as sulfur, acetophenones, and indoles using a magnetic nanoparticle-supported [Urea]4[ZnCl2] deep eutectic solvent as a green catalyst. The synthesis of a series of diversely functionalized thieno[2,3-b]indole has been successfully performed in a one-pot reaction. Among a total of 25 compounds synthesized, there are 21 new compounds with full characterization such as FT-IR, 1H and 13C NMR, HRMS (ESI). Due to the deep eutectic solvent coated surface of the magnetic nanoparticles, the catalyst could be recovered by an external magnet and reused in five consecutive runs without a considerable decrease in catalytic activity.

A Bronsted acid promoted three-component synthesis of substituted thieno[2,3-b]indole has been developed starting from indoles, alkenes or alkynes, and sulfur powder. N,N-Dimethylformamide plays an important role to convert the starting materials into the fused products. Various functional groups attached to substrates were well tolerated to afford the corresponding products in moderate to good yields under very simple reaction conditions.

Abstract Synthesis of photodynamic and photothermal agents with absorption in the near-infrared (NIR) region and featuring excellent photostability, high singlet oxygen generation efficiency, good photothermal conversion efficiency, and good biocompatibility is necessary for the application of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and phtothermal therapy (PTT). Three NIR absorption compounds based on thieno[2,3- b ]indole (TI) and diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) were designed and synthesized. Their UV-vis-NIR a...

An efficient three-component thieno[2,3-b]indole formation method was developed under metal-free conditions. The cascade cyclization was enabled by acid-promoted annulation of indoles, ketones and sulfur powder, which enabled modular synthesis of 2-substituted and 3-substituted thieno[2,3-b]indoles with excellent regioselectivity and broad functional group tolerance. DMF solvent played an important role in the regioselectivity control.

A novel hybrid magnetic nanocatalyst was synthesized by covalent coating of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles with choline chloride–urea deep eutectic solvent using 3-iodopropyltrimethoxysilane as a linker. The structure of this new catalyst was fully characterized via elemental analysis, transmission and scanning electron microscopies, X-ray diffraction and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. It was employed in the synthesis of various 2-amino-4H-pyran derivatives in water solution via an easy ...

Shattering the long-held dogma that organolithium chemistry needs to be performed under inert atmospheres in toxic organic solvents, chemoselective addition of organolithium reagents to non-activated imines and quinolines has been accomplished in green, biorenewable deep eutectic solvents (DESs) at room temperature and in the presence of air, establishing a novel and sustainable access to amines. Improving on existing methods, this approach proceeds in the absence of additives; occurs without co...

Abstract Two novel D(A-Ar) 2 type small molecules (SMs) of 3T(DPP-BTI) 2 and 4T(DPP-BTI) 2 were synthesized and characterized, which contain diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) arms, 6-dodecyl-6 H -benzo[4,5]thieno[2,3- b ]indole (BTI) terminals, and oligomerthiophene donor unit (3T=trithiophene, 4T=tetrathiophene). The relation-ship between structure and property was investigated. Compared with their corresponding parent A-D-A type SMs, both D(A-Ar) 2 type SMs exhibited a significantly increasing circui...

Abstract A series of novel D-π-A type organic dyes with different π-linker are theoretically designed and investigated for their potential applications in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). We mainly focused on the influence of the extension of π-linker on the overall efficiency. The discussions are classified into two aspects: one is the isolated dyes and the other is the dye-TiO 2 system. The calculated results indicate that the isolated dyes THI-2T-C , THI-4T-3C , and THI-6T-5C have the bett...

Abstract Four organic compounds with different π-linkers are theoretically explored as potential photosensitizers for application in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Besides the isolated dyes, the interfacial properties of dyes adsorbed on TiO2 anatase (101) surface are theoretically investigated. The overall conversion efficiency (η) of DSSCs is evaluated by the following items on the basis of the isolated dyes, including structures, absorption spectrum, energy gap, open-circuit voltage (Voc...

The synthesis of sulfur heterocycles via the construction of C–S bonds has received considerable attention due to their biological value and extensive pharmaceutical application. While diverse sulfurating agents have been developed over the past few decades, in this regard, elemental sulfur, with advantages of low toxicity, odorless nature and chemical stability, has great potential for the construction of diverse sulfur heterocycles through its direct incorporation into the target molecules in ...

The Meyer-Schuster rearrangement of propargylic alcohols into α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds has been revisited by setting up an atom-economic process catalyzed by a deep eutectic solvent FeCl3·6H2O/glycerol. Isomerizations take place smoothly, at room temperature, under air and with short reaction times. The unique solubilizing properties of the eutectic mixture enabled the use of a substrate concentration up to 1.0 M with the medium being recycled up to ten runs without any loss of catalyt...
