A unique Markovnikov hydroalkoxylation of unactivated olefins with a cobalt complex, silane, and N-fluoropyridinium salt is reported. Further optimization of reaction conditions yielded high functional group tolerance and versatility of alcoholic solvent employed, including methanol, i-propanol, and t-butanol. Use of trifluorotoluene as a solvent made the… (More)
A mild, general, and functional group tolerant intramolecular hydroalkoxylation and hydroacyloxylation of unactivated olefins using a Co(salen) complex, an N-fluoropyridinium salt, and a disiloxane reagent is described. This reaction was carried out at room temperature and afforded five- and six-membered oxygen heterocyclic compounds, such as cyclic ethers… (More)
Functional group tolerance is one of the important requirements for chemical reactions, especially for the synthesis of complex molecules. Herein, we report a mild, general, and functional group tolerant intramolecular hydroamination of unactivated olefins using a Co(salen) complex, an N-fluoropyridinium salt, and a disiloxane reagent. This method, which… (More)
Catalytic hydrofluorination of olefins using a cobalt catalyst was developed. The exclusive Markovnikov selectivity, functional group tolerance, and scalability of this reaction make it an attractive protocol for the hydrofluorination of olefins. A preliminary mechanistic experiment showed the involvement of a radical intermediate.
Full details are provided for an improved synthesis of cortistatin A and related structures as well as the underlying logic and evolution of strategy. The highly functionalized cortistatin A-ring embedded with a key heteroadamantane was synthesized by a simple and scalable five-step sequence. A chemoselective, tandem geminal dihalogenation of an unactivated… (More)
One stereocenter makes all the difference: The synthesis and biological evaluation of 17-epi-cortistatin A is reported from a common intermediate used to procure natural cortistatin A. The synthesis features a unique stereocontrolled Raney-Ni reduction process that can be employed to reliably produce both alpha- and beta-configured D-ring aryl steroids.… (More)
[reaction: see text] A novel synthetic path to proaporphine alkaloids was established by employing aromatic oxidation with a hypervalent iodine reagent, where an unprecedented carbon-carbon bond forming reaction between the para-position of a phenol group and an enamide-carbon took place smoothly to give the desired spiro-cyclohexadienone.
Optically pure N-Boc-norpandamarilactonine-B was diastereoselectively synthesized starting from L-serine by employing a double ring closing metathesis (RCM) of a tetraene derivative as a key reaction. N-Boc-norpandamarilactonine-B obtained was further converted to pandamarilactonine-A.
DOI: 10.1002/anie.201210099 A publication by the Trauner group prompted the authors of this Communication to make structural assignments by re-examination of the NMR experiments for synthetic trichodermatide A: NOESY correlations between H10 and OH9, and between H8 and OH10, were observed. Furthermore, the coupling constant (6.8 Hz) derived from the… (More)
