An Overview of Stereoselective Synthesis of α-Aminophosphonic Acids and Derivatives.
Nanoparticle-induced vascular blockade in human prostate cancer.
ranostic nanoparticles are developed that simultaneously serve as an imaging agent and inhibit tumor growth by obstructing tumor circulation through blood clotting and treatment of mice with prostate cancer with multiple doses of the nanoworms induced tumor necrosis and a highly significant reduction in tumor growth.

This study reinforced previous conclusions that peptides based on alpha-amino acids with a Calpha-methyl substituent and aCalpha-linear alkyl substituents are characterized by a strong tendency to fold into turn and helical structures.

The fact that NMR data show a shortened distance between the D-Tic aromatic ring and the Orn delta-amino group may help explain the improved antibiotic profile of this analogue.
New (RS)-benzoxazepin-purines with antitumour activity: The chiral switch from (RS)-2,6-dichloro-9-[1-(p-nitrobenzenesulfonyl)-1,2,3,5-tetrahydro-4,1-benzoxazepin-3-yl]-9H-purine.
Peptide δ-Turn: Literature Survey and Recent Progress.
This Minireview article assembles and critically analyzes relevant data from a literature survey on the δ-turn conformation in α-peptide folding motifs in compounds and unpublished results from recent conformational energy calculations and a preliminary solution-state analysis on a small model peptide are outlined.
Organophotocatalysis in nanostructured soft gel materials as tunable reaction vessels: comparison with homogeneous and micellar solutions
Riboflavin tetraacetate-catalyzed aerobic photooxidation of 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanol was investigated as a model reaction under blue visible light in different soft gel materials, aiming to…
Phenylboronic acid as efficient and eco-friendly catalyst for the one-pot, three-component synthesis of α-aminophosphonates under solvent-free conditions
A simple, mild, and efficient one-pot, three-component synthetic method has been developed for the preparation of α-aminophosphonates using phenylboronic acid as catalyst under solvent-free…
