Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


2-Bromocyclododecanone was utilized as precursor to synthesize polyfused heterocyclic cyclododecane ring systems. Transformation of 2-bromocyclododecanone (5) with 1H-benzimidazole-2-thiole (6), benzo[d]thiazole-2-thiol (9), 2-naphthol (12), and thiophenol (15) afforded thiazolo[2,3-b]benzimidazole (8), thiazolo[2,3-b]benzothaizole derivative (11) naphtho[1,2-d]furan derivative (14) and 2-(phenylthio)cyclododecanone (16), respectively.
