Described herein are two general screening procedures for the simultaneous determination of 49 exogenous compounds (21 diuretics, 19 beta-blockers, eight stimulants and two steroidal drugs) in human urine by high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) and ultra performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry(More)
UNLABELLED Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose is the leading cause of acute liver failure in Western countries. In the last four decades much progress has been made in our understanding of APAP-induced liver injury through rodent studies. However, some differences exist in the time course of injury between rodents and humans. To study the mechanism of APAP(More)
In the presence of diethylzinc as a stoichiometric reductant, Ni(acac) 2 functions as an efficient precatalyst for the reductive aldol cyclization of alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds tethered to a ketone electrophile through an amide or an ester linkage. The reactions are tolerant of a wide range of substitution at both alpha,beta-unsaturated(More)
The aims of this study were to develop, validate, and apply a high-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS) method for quantification of protein-derived 3-(cystein-S-yl)-acetaminophen (APAP-Cys) in human serum. Formation of acetaminophen (APAP) protein adducts is thought to be a critical, early(More)
[chemical reaction: see text]. 4-Hydroxypiperidin-2-ones may be prepared in highly diastereoselective fashion using a Cu(I)-catalyzed reductive aldol cyclization of alpha,beta-unsaturated amides with ketones. Used in combination with proline-catalyzed asymmetric Mannich reactions, this methodology enables the enantioselective synthesis of more highly(More)
[reaction: see text] Cobalt catalysis enables a new method for the generation of zinc enolates using diethylzinc to reduce alpha,beta-unsaturated amides. This method has been applied to a high-yielding diastereoselective reductive aldol cyclization.
The aim of this exploratory study was to develop and validate a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method for the quantification of nicotine, eight nicotine metabolites, and two minor tobacco alkaloids in fortified analyte-free hair and subsequently apply this method to hair samples collected from active smokers. An additional aim of(More)
