A series of 1,2,3-triazolylsterols was prepared from pregnenolone through reductive amination and copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (click chemistry). The newly generated stereocenter of the key propargylamino intermediate provided a mixture of diastereomers which were separated chromatographically, and the configuration of the R isomer was(More)
A series of prenyl 1,2,3-triazoles were prepared from isoprenyl azides and different alkynes. The dipolar cycloaddition reaction provided exclusively primary azide products as regioisomeric mixtures that were separated by column chromatography and fully characterized. Most of the compounds displayed antiparasitic activity against Trypanosoma cruzi and(More)
Phylloquinone is a redox active naphthoquinone involved in electron transport in plants. The function of this reduced form remains unclear due to its instability, which has precluded detection. Herein, a simple method that permits the stabilization of the reduced form of phylloquinone by di-O-methylation and HPLC detection is described.
A diversity-oriented approach for the synthesis of various structurally different prenylated alcohols from readily accessible and common precursors was developed. With varying approaches, this article describes some successful examples of a Friedel–Crafts alkylation using methoxyphenols and different prenyl alcohols (geraniol and (E,E)-farnesol). We(More)
