The reaction mechanisms can be proposed based on the reactivity of chemical compounds involved. In the past, these proposals were supported (or discredited), primarily through the isolation of the intermediates or on the basis of spectroscopic and kinetic data. Moreover, the difficulty of detecting transient species in solution hindered the consolidation and elucidation of these mechanisms.The understanding of mechanisms that operate in such chemical processes arouses the fascination of synthetic organic chemists, and a constant challenge in this area.Therefore, this research project we are proposing to carry out a detailed mechanistic investigation of the three versions of Morita-Bayllis-Hillman (MBH-classical, aza and asymmetric), using the technique of mass spectrometry ESI-MS/MS in order to clarify and strengthen proposals currently suggested in the literature. A new approach is used for the MBH-aza versions, classic reagents which are marked with loads (Charged tags), which facilitate the detection and carry more information for analysis by mass spectrometry. Moreover, a study of the asymmetric version of classical MBH catalyzed by a chiral amines also be addressed. In this case, experiments will be performed for the separation of stereoisomers possible mechanism using formed during the ion mobility (Twim-MS). (AU)
