Phosphomolybdic acid (PMA) and phosphotungstic acid (PTA) efficiently catalyze the addition of H2O2 to β-diketones to form bridged 1,2,4,5-tetraoxanes. These reactions are not accompanied by the formation of monocyclic peroxides containing hydroxy and hydroperoxide groups or polymeric peroxides. The use of these catalysts made it possible to obtain bridged(More)
Although antischistosomal properties of peroxides were studied in recent years, systematic structure-activity relationships have not been conducted. We evaluated the antischistosomal potential of 64 peroxides belonging to bridged 1,2,4,5-tetraoxanes, alphaperoxides, and tricyclic monoperoxides. Thirty-nine compounds presented IC₅₀ values <15 μM on newly(More)
A method for the assembly of tricyclic structures containing the peroxide, monoperoxyacetal, and acetal moieties was developed based on the acid-catalyzed reaction of β,δ-triketones with H(2)O(2). Tricyclic compounds are formed selectively in yields from 39% to 90% by the reactions with the use of large amounts of strong acids, such as H(2)SO(4), HClO(4),(More)
Synthetic ozonides and tetraoxanes were shown to have high cytotoxicity in vitro when tested on androgen-independent prostate cancer cell lines DU145 and PC3, which is in some cases was higher than that of doxorubicin, cisplatin, etoposide, artemisinin, and artesunate. Activity of ozonide stereoisomers differs from each other. This difference in activity(More)
Praziquantel is currently the only drug available to treat schistosomiasis. Since drug resistance would be a major barrier for the increasing global attempts to eliminate schistosomiasis as a public health problem, efforts should go hand in hand with the discovery of novel treatment options. Synthetic peroxides might offer a good direction since their(More)
This review is the first to collate and summarize main data on named and unnamed rearrangement reactions of peroxides. It should be noted, that in the chemistry of peroxides two types of processes are considered under the term rearrangements. These are conventional rearrangements occurring with the retention of the molecular weight and transformations of(More)
The transition metal (Cu, Fe, Mn, Co) catalyzed peroxidation of beta-dicarbonyl compounds at the alpha position by tert-butyl hydroperoxide was discovered. A selective, experimentally convenient, and gram-scale method was developed for the synthesis of alpha-peroxidated derivatives of beta-diketones, beta-keto esters, and diethyl malonate. Virtually(More)
The present review summarizes publications on the artemisinin peroxide fragment synthesis from 1983 to 2016. The data are classified according to the structures of a precursor used in the key peroxidation step of artemisinin peroxide cycle synthesis. The first part of the review comprises the construction of artemisinin peroxide fragment in total syntheses,(More)
The value of stereoelectronic guidelines is illustrated by the discovery of a convenient, ozone-free synthesis of bridged secondary ozonides from 1,5-dicarbonyl compounds and H2 O2 . The tetraoxane products generally formed in reactions of carbonyl and dicarbonyl compounds with H2 O2 were not detected because the structural distortions imposed on the(More)
The biological activity of organic peroxides is usually associated with the antimalarial properties of artemisinin and its derivatives. However, the analysis of published data indicates that organic peroxides exhibit a variety of biological activity, which is still being given insufficient attention. In the present review, we deal with natural,(More)
