A convenient and efficient synthesis of 1,2-azidoalcohols and 1,2-azidoamines has been achieved by ring opening of epoxides and aziridines using cerium(III) chloride and sodium azide in acetonitrile. The reaction is highly regioselective and afforded the corresponding products in good to excellent yields under mild and neutral reaction conditions. The(More)
The Pd-catalyzed isomerization of primary allylic alcohols into the corresponding saturated aldehydes has been achieved at room temperature for the first time in good to excellent yields under mild conditions. The functional group compatibility in this reaction is studied, and this new methodology has been successfully applied in the synthesis of a C5-C13(More)
A diastereoselective synthesis of tetrahydro- and dihydro-pyrido[2,3-c]coumarin derivatives has been achieved via a one-pot three-component aza-Diels-Alder reaction of aromatic aldehydes, 3-aminocoumarin and dienophiles catalyzed by BiCl3. NOE studies proved that exo-isomers were obtained in all cases with high selectivity. The reaction proceeded at room(More)
A series of novel 1,2,3-triazole and isoxazole-linked pyrazole derivatives have been synthesized from pyrazole and triazole/isoxazole scaffolds. The synthesized congeners were evaluated for their anti-proliferative efficacy in four cancer cell lines (MCF7, HEPG2, IMR32, and HELA). Majority of the compounds demonstrated potent cytotoxic activities, among(More)
Total synthesis of spiroketal EBC-23 has been described by two divergent approaches from three simple building blocks. Gold-catalyzed cycloisomerization of alkynol and acid-mediated spirocyclization of diketalketone were successfully utilized to effect spiroketal formation. A Cu(I)-P(Cy)3-catalyzed protocol for the highly regio- and stereocontrolled(More)
[structure: see text]. A highly selective cleavage of MEM ethers has been achieved in high yields using CeCl3.7H2O in refluxing acetonitrile under mild and neutral reaction conditions. The method is very rapid and compatible with other hydroxyl protecting groups such as Bn, TBDPS, Ac, Me, Tr, PMB, benzylidene, THP, MOM, BOM, and NHAc present in the(More)
