This paper presents the technical approaches including the system architecture and the controllers that have been used by Team SNU at the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Finals 2015. The platform THORMANG we used is a modular humanoid robot developed by ROBOTIS. On top of this platform, Team SNU developed the iris camera module and the end effector with(More)
Six natural iridoids including jatamanin A, F, G and J, gastrolactone and nepetalactone have been synthesized via the efficient transformation of a core cyclopenta[c]pyran intermediate. Key features of the syntheses include the stereoselective construction of the core cyclopenta[c]pyran skeleton of the iridoid lactones via a Pd(0)-catalyzed intramolecular(More)
Asymmetric syntheses of both 1-deoxy-6,8a-di-epi-castanospermine and 1-deoxy-6-epi-castanospermine, polyhydroxylated indolizidine alkaloids that act as selective glycosidase inhibitors, have been accomplished in seven steps. The key feature of our unique syntheses includes the stereoselective introduction of the C-3 and C-4 hydroxyl groups utilizing the(More)
The rational design and synthesis of a biochemical probe of natural (+)-macrosphelide A, a potent cell-cell adhesion inhibitor, was completed to aid in the identification of its biological target. The key features of the synthesis include: (1) an efficient synthesis of the macrosphelide core structure using Yamaguchi-Hirao alkynylation, (2) a cross(More)
The asymmetric formal synthesis of schulzeines A and C is described. Key features of the synthesis include the efficient and stereoselective construction of the benzoquinolizidine skeleton via the aza-Claisen rearrangement-induced ring expansion of the 1-vinyl-N-glycyl-isoquinoline, which was prepared by the highly enantioselective asymmetric allylation of(More)
Enantioselective synthesis of (-)-deguelin was accomplished via an iterative pyran-ring formation approach. The key features involve the anionic addition of a chromene unit to aryloxy alkyl aldehyde for the double cyclization precursor and iterative pyran ring formation by Pd-catalyzed O-arylation and C-arylation, respectively.
A divergent synthetic methodology for a tabernaemontanine-related alkaloid was developed. The synthetic route features practical improvements in the Pictet-Spengler cyclization for the tetrahydro-β-carboline intermediate and an unprecedented tandem Reformatsky-aza-Claisen rearrangement to create the core carbon skeleton and stereochemistries of(More)
