We report the synthesis of porphyrazines (pzs), or tetraazaporphyrins, of the form H2[pz(An;B4-n)], where A is [S(CH2)3COOR]2 (R = n-Pr,H) and B is a fused beta,beta'-diisopropyloxybenzo group, including the compounds with n = 4 (6), n = 3 (7) and the trans compound with n = 2 (8) (Scheme 1). The synthesis employs Linstead crossover macrocyclization of(More)
P. gingivalis (Pg), a causative agent of chronic generalized periodontitis, has been implicated in promoting cardiovascular disease. Expression of lipoprotein gene PG0717 of Pg strain W83 was found to be transiently upregulated during invasion of human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAEC), suggesting this protein may be involved in virulence. We(More)
4-Alkenyl-2-azetidinone systems were converted to the corresponding ethyl 2-¿4-alkenyl-2-oxo-1-azetidinyl-4-pentenoates. In addition, 4-(2-propenyl-1-oxy)-, 4-(2-propenyl-1-thio)-, 4-¿N-(2-propenyl)-(4-toluenesulfonyl)- and (3S, 4R)-4-(2-propenyl)-3-¿(1R)-1-(tert-butyldimethylsilyloxy)ethyl-++ +azeti din-2-one were converted into beta-lactam dienes via(More)
The shielding of the apparatus described in the previous Quarterly Progress Report has been completed, and very satisfactory semiautomatic operation has been obtained. The focusing magnet has been rewound and calibrated. With the improved focusing conditions the interception current was reduced to below 0. 1 percent for all but very weak magnetic fields.(More)
We report the synthesis and physical characterization of a series of peripherally functionalized porphyrazines (pzs) of the forms H2[pz(A;B3)] and trans-H2[pz(A2);B2], where A is a dithiolene chelate of molybdocene or vanadocene and B is a solublizing group. The precursor pz's 8 and 9, of the form H2[pz(A;B3)], where A = (4-(butyloxycarbonyl)-S-benzyl)2 and(More)
Sequential reaction of 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-D-glucopyranose (7) with butyllithium and 2-[2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-O-(tert-butyldiphenylsilyl)-D- arabinonoyl]thio-3-nitropyridine (6) at -78 degrees gave 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl 2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-O-(tert-butyldiphenylsilyl)-D-arabinonate+ ++ (8; 71%, alpha:beta greater than 50:1). Ester(More)
Stepwise macrocyclization of the all syn-trans-1,15-quinquecyclopropanedimethanol (4) with iso- and terephthaloyl chlorides and 4,4'-methanediyl-dibenzoic acid (28) gave the corresponding coronanes 22, 23, and 32. The same protocol was used with all syn-trans-1,21-septecyclopropanedimethanol (5) and 2,3-naphthalenedicarboxylic acid to obtain the macrolide(More)
