Abstract : Highly functionalized spirocyclic ketals were synthesized through asymmetric oxidative spirocyclization via carbanion-induced ring transformation of 2H-pyran-2-ones with 1,4-cyclohexandione monoethyleneketal under alkaline conditions. Further acidic-hydrolysis of obtained spirocyclic ketals yields highly substituted 2-tetralone in good yield. Computational analysis based on the DFT calculations and MD simulations has been performed in order to predict and understand global and local reactivity properties of newly synthesized derivatives. DFT calculations covered fundamental reactivity descriptors such as molecular electrostatic potential and average local ionization energies. Nitrogen atom and benzene rings have been recognized as the most important molecular sites from these aspects. Additionally, to predict whether studied compounds are stable towards the autoxidation mechanism, we have also studied the bond dissociation energies for hydrogen abstraction and identified the derivative which might form potentially genotoxic impurities. Interactions with water, including both global and local aspects, have been covered thanks to the MD simulations and calculations of interaction energies with water, counting of formed hydrogen interactions, and radial distribution functions. MD simulations were also used to identify which excipient could be used together with these compounds, and it has been established that the polyvinylpyrrolidone polymer could be highly compatible with these compounds, from the aspect of calculated solubility parameters.
