Activation of TMSCN by N-heterocyclic carbenes for facile cyanosilylation of carbonyl compounds.
N-Heterocyclic carbenes were found to be highly effective organocatalysts in activating TMSCN for facile cyanosilylation of carbonyl compounds. Cyano transfer from TMSCN to aldehydes and ketonesExpand

A concise synthesis of butylcycloheptylprodigiosin.
A short and efficient total synthesis of the tripyrrole alkaloid butylcycloheptylprodigiosin is described. Key to the brevity of the approach is a two-step synthesis of macrocyclic formylpyrrole 4Expand
