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 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)
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.
