Structure revision and syntheses of epohelmins A and B.
[structures: see text] Epohelmins A (24) and B (26) have been reassigned as pyrrolizidin-1-ols, rather than the proposed 9-oxa-4-azabicyclo[6.1.0]nonane structures 1 and 2, respectively. Syntheses ofExpand

An Improved Procedure for the Conversion of Alkenes and Glycals to 1,2-Diazides Using Mn(OAc)3·2H2O in Acetonitrile Containing Trifluoroacetic Acid
Abstract Alkenes and Glycals react with Mn(OAc3)·2H2O and NaN3 in 9:1 acetonitrile-trifluoroacetic acid to give 1,2-diazides in >80% yield. Allylic azides are formed by slow addition of NaN3 to aExpand
