The stereocontrolled synthesis of trans-disubstituted cyclopropylketones has been achieved from beta-alkyl, gamma-benzoyl phosphine oxides via a three-step cascade reaction incorporating an acyl transfer, phosphinoyl transfer and cyclisation to form the cyclopropane. Using Evans' chiral oxazolidinone auxiliary and by masking the phosphine oxide moiety as a(More)
Phosphine oxides are lithiated much faster than phosphine sulfides and phosphine boranes. Phosphine sulfides are in turn lithiated much more readily than phosphine boranes. It was possible to trap a phosphine sulfide THF in one case which upon treatment with t-BuOK gave cyclopropane, showing that phosphine sulfides readily undergo both phosphinoyl transfer(More)
The stimulator allows textured surfaces to be moved sinusoidally across the skin of the fingerpad. Sinusoidal motion is produced by a "scotch yolk" driven by a DC motor. The amplitude of movement is adjustable up to a maximum of 80 mm peak to peak and the frequency is continuously adjustable from 0.1 Hz to 2.0 Hz. Movement of the surface is monitored by an(More)
