The syntheses of (R)- and (S)-norcarnitine ethyl esters are described starting with an optimized, chiral chemical reduction of ethyl 4-chloroacetoacetate followed by azide substitution, reduction, and dimethylation. The reaction of (R)- and (S)-norcarnitine ethyl esters with 1-bromoheptadecan-2-one gives (+)- and(More)
Newkome-type, 1-->3 C-branched dendrons make an excellent headgroup for amphiphiles with ultralong, saturated, linear alkyl chains. Synthesis of a homologous series of five such amphiphiles from 14 to 22 carbons-RNHCONHC(CH2CH2CO2H)3, R = n-CnH2n+1, n = 14, 16, 18, 20, 22-proceeds readily. These amphiphiles are soluble in aqueous solutions of(More)
