Beta-hydroxy amides 6 and 7 were treated with triphenylphosphonium anhydride trifluoromethane sulfonate (3), or the cyclic analogue 4, to generate 2-oxazolines 5 and 8 under mild conditions. The reaction was optimised by examining the number of equivalents of reagents 3 or 4, or diisopropylethyl amine required to best effect cyclisation. The effects of(More)
A series of morpholine substituted amino acids (phenylalanine, leucine, lysine and glutamic acid) was synthesized. A fragment-based screening approach was then used to evaluate a series of small heterocycles, including morpholine, oxazoline, dihydro-1,3-oxazine, tetrahydro-1,3-oxazepine, thiazoline, tetrahydro-1,3-pyrimidine, tetrahydro-1,3-diazepine and(More)
The alkoxytriphenylphosphonium ion intermediate of the Mitsunobu reaction can be generated using the Hendrickson reagent, triphenylphosphonium anhydride trifluoromethanesulfonate, 1. Strangely, while the reagent 1 can be used in place of the Mitsunobu reagents (triphenylphosphine and a dialkylazodicarboxylate) for the esterification of primary alcohols,(More)
The title compound, C(13)H(18)N(2)O(4), crystallizes as discrete mol-ecules associated as N-H⋯O hydrogen-bonded dimers disposed about a crystallographic inversion centre. The structure is the first solid-state structure for a 3-acetyl-pyridone without C-4 to C-6 substituents. The amide subsituent at C-3 is coplanar with the pyridone ring, while the(More)
The racemic title compound, C(9)H(11)NO(4)·H(2)O, a tricyclic rearranged amino-norbornane dicarb-oxy-lic acid, is a conformationally rigid analogue of glutamic acid and exists as an ammonium-carboxyl-ate zwitterion, with the bridghead carb-oxy-lic acid group anti-related. In the crystal, N-H⋯O and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the ammonium, carb-oxy-lic(More)
