Nitrogen-rich heterocyclic compounds have had a profound effect on human health because these chemical motifs are found in a large number of drugs used to combat a broad range of diseases and pathophysiological conditions. Advances in transition-metal-mediated cross-coupling have simplified the synthesis of such molecules; however, C-H functionalization of(More)

The binolphosphoric acid-catalyzed Pictet-Spengler reaction of an N-(5-oxy-2,4-pentadienyl)tryptamine derivative with methyl 5-oxo-2-(phenylseleno)pentanoate leads to the tetrahydro-β-carboline in a 92:8 enantiomeric ratio. This product is easily converted into the substrate for a stereoselective intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction of the type earlier(More)
