Between August and October 2003, 15 cases of Legionnaires' disease were detected in the 9th district of Rome. To identify possible sources of Legionella exposure, a matched case-control study was conducted and environmental samples were collected. Hospital discharge records were also retrospectively analysed for the period July-November 2003, and results(More)
The palladium catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of phenyltrifluoroborate with a chemoenzymatically derived bromoazidoconduritol, combined with 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition, with a variety of alkynes is described. Fourteen new compounds were synthesized in moderate to good yields. The click chemistry reaction can be effected by using sodium ascorbate and CuSO4(More)
With potassium ferricyanide copper(II) forms KCu(10),[Fe(CN)(6)](7) quantitatively in 0.5M potassium nitrate medium. Cadmium forms Cd(3)[Fe(CN)(6)](2) if the ferricyanide is added to the cadmium solution in absence of extra potassium, and KCd(10)[Fe(CN)(6)](7) if potassium is added first, or if the cadmium solution is added to the ferricyanide. Silver forms(More)
We report a case of colonic pneumocystosis in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive homosexual male who presented with fever and diarrhea. Stool cultures for bacterial pathogens and examinations for ova and parasites were negative. The diagnosis was made by colonoscopic biopsy which revealed Pneumocystis carinii organisms in the lamina propria of(More)
Diarylmethylamines are of great interest due to their prevalence in pharmaceutical chemistry. As a result, new methods for their synthesis are in demand. Herein, we report a versatile protocol for the synthesis of diarylmethylamine derivatives involving palladium-catalyzed arylation of in situ generated 2-azaallyl anion intermediates. The 2-azaallyl anions(More)
Although metal-catalyzed direct arylation reactions of non- or weakly acidic C-H bonds have recently received much attention, chemists have relied heavily on substrates with appropriately placed directing groups to steer reactivity. To date, examples of intermolecular arylation of unactivated C(sp(3))-H bonds in the absence of a directing group remain(More)
Palladium-catalyzed allylic substitution reactions are among the most efficient methods to construct C-C bonds between sp(3)-hybridized carbon atoms. In contrast, much less work has been done with nickel catalysts, perhaps because of the different mechanisms of the allylic substitution reactions. Palladium catalysts generally undergo substitution by a(More)
