To Do List
Ugi NMR Analysis
To dehydrate a preformed imine solution (
) and proceed with the
by adding the amino acid component, and noting the changes.
The methanol d-4 solution prepared in
consisting of the imine between 5-methylfurfurylamine and 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde, with a 15% excess of aldehyde, was treated with MgSO4 and the changes were monitored by H NMR.
(All spectra obtained on a 300MHz Varian Inova instrument)
Initial reaction mixture
After addition of MgSO4, filtering, and centrifuge
After several days, the concentration of the imine remained approximately the same, based on comparison of the aldehyde peak (9.64ppm) and the imine carbon proton peak (8.14ppm) integrations. The
final HMR of the imine solution in EXP047
showed that the percentage of aldehyde and amine (methylene peak at 3.87ppm -

) remaining were 15.02% and 4.31% respectively based on the peak integrations. Just prior to performing this experiment, the percentages were calculated at 17.67% and 4.88%, respectively.
Addition of magnesium sulfate had an adverse effect on the NMR spectrum in that peaks were shifted and severely broadened, and many multiplets were broadened into singlets.
did it change the integration?
Addition of MgSO4 as a drying agent into CD3OD solution has an adverse effect on HMR spectra, indicating that it is dissolved into the solution.
16:50 - Mixed the solution in the NMR tube from
back with the leftover solution from the mixing of the two components. Shook vial for 30 sec. Transferred 800 uL of that solution into a clean, dry NMR tube.
16:56 - Obtained HMR of the initial imine solution.
17:40 - Recombined the NMR sample to the orginal solution. Added excess (102.8 mg, 12.25 mol) anhydrous magnesium sulfate. Shook sample vigorously for 30 sec.
18:10 - Shook sample vigorously for 30 sec.
18:40 - Filtered sample through a 5.75" Pasteur pipet wadded with glass wool into another vial. Some visible magnesium sulfate remained, so the sample was transferred into a 12 mL centrifuge tube.
19:00 - Sample was centrifuged for 1.5 minutes.
19:05 - 800 uL of the solution was transferred into a clean NMR tube.
19:39 - Obtained HMR of dehydrated solution.
