6‐Substituted Indanoyl Isoleucine Conjugates Mimic the Biological Activity of Coronatine
The 6-substituted indanoyl isoleucine conjugates of type 12 are potent elicitors of plant secondary metabolism and tendril coiling. The 6-substituted indanoyl carboxylic acid is available in fourExpand
A key step in the formation of acrylic acid from CO2 and ethylene: the transformation of a nickelalactone into a nickel-acrylate complex.
The reaction of a nickelalactone with dppm, resulting in the formation of a stable binuclear Ni(I) complex with an acrylate, a Ph2P- and a dppm bridge, models a key step in the formation of acrylicExpand
Preparation of chiral thioureas, ureas and guanidines from (S)-2-(N,N-dialkylaminomethyl)pyrrolidines
Abstract The reaction of commercially available heterocumulenes (isothiocyanates, isocyanatobenzene, N,N′-isopropylcarbodiimide) with lithiated chiral diamines 4 provided a novel class of chiralExpand
InIII and GaIII Complexes of Sugar-Substituted Tripodal Trisalicylidene Imines: The First 68Ga-Labelled Sugar Derivative
Gallium and indium complexes derived from salicylaldimines of 1,1,1-tris(aminomethyl)ethane (TAME) with pendantxylose, glucose and galactose units have been synthesised as model compounds forExpand
Stable "inverse" sandwich complex with unprecedented organocalcium(I): crystal structures of [(thf)(2)Mg(Br)-C(6)H(2)-2,4,6-Ph(3)] and [(thf)(3)Ca{mu-C(6)H(3)-1,3,5-Ph(3)}Ca(thf)(3)].
Quantum chemical calculations shed light on the bonding situation in this very unusual dinuclear Ca(I) compound. Expand
Dicarbonyl-bis(cysteamine)iron(II): a light induced carbon monoxide releasing molecule based on iron (CORM-S1).
Physiological tests using ion channels sensitive to CO revealed the light- and time-dependent decomposition of CORM-S1 without obvious adverse effects on the cellular level, making it suitable for selective CO release and possesses a high potential for therapeutic application. Expand
Synthesis and structural diversity of 2-pyridylmethylideneamine complexes of zinc(II) chloride
Abstract The addition reactions of zinc(II) chloride to N-substituted pyridine-2-carbaldimines [Py–CH NR, R = Me (1a), Ph (1b), Bz (1c), allyl (1d)] lead to different complexes dependent on theExpand
Structure, Biosynthesis, and Biological Activity of the Cyclic Lipopeptide Anikasin.
The structure of the cyclic lipopeptide anikasin is elucidated using X-ray crystallography, its biosynthetic gene cluster is analyzed, and its natural role in the interaction between the producer strain Pseudomonas fluorescens HKI0770 and protozoal predators is investigated. Expand
Heteroleptic Phenylcalcium Derivatives via Metathesis Reactions of PhCa(thf)4I with Potassium Compounds
The metathesis reactions of (thf)4Ca(Ph)I with the corresponding potassium compounds KR yield the heteroleptic arylcalcium derivatives (thf)3Ca(Ph)[N(SiMe3)2] (1) and (thf)4Ca(Ph)PPh2 (2), due to theExpand
