Recent advances in chemical dearomatization of nonactivated arenes.
Dearomatization reactions provide a synthetic connection between readily available, simple aromatic starting materials and more saturated intermediates of greater molecular complexity and syntheticExpand
Dearomative dihydroxylation with arenophiles.
Aromatic hydrocarbons are some of the most elementary feedstock chemicals, produced annually on a million metric ton scale, and are used in the production of polymers, paints, agrochemicals andExpand
Deoxynybomycins inhibit mutant DNA gyrase and rescue mice infected with fluoroquinolone-resistant bacteria
Fluoroquinolones are one of the most commonly prescribed classes of antibiotics, but fluoroquinolone resistance (FQR) is widespread and increasing. Deoxynybomycin (DNM) is a natural-productExpand
Enantioselective polyene cyclizations.
The cyclization of polyolefins represents a powerful tool for the rapid generation of molecular complexity. Within the last decade, significant discoveries have been made in the development ofExpand
Total Synthesis of Lycoricidine and Narciclasine by Chemical Dearomatization of Bromobenzene.
The total synthesis of lycoricidine and narciclasine is enabled by an arenophile-mediated dearomative dihydroxylation of bromobenzene. Subsequent transpositive Suzuki coupling and cycloreversionExpand
