Synthesis and structure revision of tyroscherin, and bioactivities of its stereoisomers against IGF-1-dependent tumor cells
Synthesis of the proposed structure of tyroscherin, a growth inhibitor of IGF-1-dependent cancer cells, was succeeded by one-pot Julia coupling. However, spectral data of the synthetic compound wereExpand

Synthesis of (4R,9Z)‐9‐Octadecen‐4‐olide, the Female Sex Pheromone of Janus integer, and Its Enantiomer
Enantiomer separation of (±)-8-tert-butyldiphenylsilyloxy-1-octyn-3-ol was achieved by lipase-mediated asymmetric acetylation. The resolved (R)-alkynol was converted into (4R,9Z)-9-octadecen-4-olide,Expand
