Gold-Catalyzed Meyer−Schuster Rearrangement: Application to the Synthesis of Prostaglandins
Synthetic pathway paved with gold: An improved protocol for the Meyer−Schuster rearrangement is presented using novel gold catalysts. This method is used to provide a straightforward syntheticExpand
The Meyer―Schuster rearrangement: a new synthetic strategy leading to prostaglandins and their drug analogs, Bimatoprost and Latanoprost
Abstract Gold(I) mediated Meyer–Schuster rearrangement for the installation of the ‘lower’ side chain of prostaglandins and their analogs has been developed. This Au-mediated rearrangement, featuringExpand
Synthesis and assignment of absolute configuration of the iridoid 9-deoxygelsemide.
The first enantioselective synthesis of 9-deoxygelsemide, belonging to a rare group of iridoids isolated from Gelsemium plants, is described. The key synthetic steps are a variant of theExpand
A Concise and Efficient Total Synthesis of Oleocanthal
Oleocanthal, one of the minor components of the phenolic fraction isolated from extra virgin olive oil, is an effective inhibitor of COX enzymes, possessing similar potency to the NSAID ibuprofen.Expand
Reforming the financing of the EU budget: Outlook
Abstract This paper provides a general overview of the EU’s own resources system, and of the debate on its possible reform within the current legal framework. Two alternative reforms are discussed,Expand
