Validation of the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale in rural Tanzania
Abstract Objective The purpose of the present study was to test the construct validity, internal consistency and convergent validity of the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale (HFIAS) in measuringExpand
Impact of Vaccination against Chicken Newcastle Disease on Food Intake and Food Security in Rural Households in Tanzania
Background Small-scale poultry production has the potential to increase animal-source food consumption, improve household income, and reduce food insecurity. Objective To assess the impact of aExpand
Concise, stereoselective approach to the spirooxindole ring system of citrinadin A.
The spirooxindole ring system of citrinadin A has been synthesized with excellent control over the absolute stereochemistry at the spirocenter. The key step involves a novel diastereoselectiveExpand
Total synthesis of cribrostatin 6.
Fast and furious: Cribrostatin 6, an antimicrobial and antineoplastic agent, was the target of a total synthesis where the longest linear sequence was only four steps. The key step involves a tandemExpand
Indium-mediated Barbier-type allylation of aldehydes as a convenient method for the highly enantioselective synthesis of homoallylic alcohols
Abstract We report a general method for the indium-mediated Barbier-type enantioselective allylation of both aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes using commercially available (1 S ,2 RExpand
Tandem Electrocyclic Ring Opening/Radical Cyclization: Application to the Total Synthesis of Cribrostatin 6.
A concise total synthesis ofcribrostatin 6 (1), an antimicrobial and antineoplastic agent,was accomplished using a tandem electrocyclic ring opening/radical cyclization sequence. Specifically,Expand
Approaches to Polycyclic 1,4-Dioxygenated Xanthones. Application to Total Synthesis of the Aglycone of IB-00208
Hexacyclic xanthone natural products such as IB-00208 present a formidable challenge in organic synthesis. A new approach to polycyclic 1,4-dioxygenated xanthones from benzocyclobutenones has beenExpand
Total Synthesis of the Aglycone of IB-00208.
A total synthesis of the aglycone of IB-00208 was accomplished in 22 steps using a newly developed approach towards polycyclic 1,4-dioxygenated xanthones from benzocyclobutenones. The generality ofExpand
