An improved four-step approach for the stereoselective synthesis of long-chain anti-2-amino-3-alkanols is described. Using this method, the syntheses of antiproliferative (antitumoral) compounds, spisulosine (ES-285, 2), clavaminols A and B (3 and 4), the deacetylated products of clavaminols H and N (7 and 8), as well as (2S,3R)-2-aminododecan-3-ol (9) and(More)
The first asymmetric total synthesis of the unnatural enantiomer of cytotoxic awajanomycin (1) is reported. The synthetic approach features first a convergent strategy using the cross-olefin metathesis reaction to link the lipid side chain 2 and the piperidinone core structure 3. The second feature of the synthesis resides on the construction of segment 3(More)
A novel migration-addition sequence was discovered for the reaction of enantioenriched N-tert-butanesulfinyl iminoacetate 1a with functionalized benzylzinc bromide reagents, producing tert-leucine derivatives in excellent diastereoselectivity (dr 98:2). The absolute configurations of two new chiral centers were unambiguously assigned by chemical(More)
The chiral bimetallic oxovanadium complexes have been designed for the enantioselective oxidative coupling of 2-naphthols bearing various substituents at C6 and/or C7. The chirality transferring from the amino acid to the axis of the biphenyl in oxovanadium complexes 2 was found to occur with the use of UV and CD spectra and DFT calculation. The(More)
BACKGROUND Spiroketals and the corresponding aza-spiroketals are the structural features found in a number of bioactive natural products, and in compounds possessing photochromic properties for use in the area of photochemical erasable memory, self-development photography, actinometry, displays, filters, lenses of variable optical density, and(More)
A concise and flexible approach for the asymmetric syntheses of polyhydroxylated pyrrolizidine alkaloids hyacinthacines A(2) and A(3) has been developed using iterative reductive alkylation of O,O'-dibenzyltartarimide (5) as key steps. The ambiguity about the structure of synthetic hyacinthacine A(3) due to the differences in the NMR data of the synthetic(More)
The asymmetric total synthesis of (+)-N-acetyl norloline, the putative biogenic precursor of all known loline alkaloids, has been achieved in 12 steps from commercially available (R)-glyceraldehyde acetonide. The synthesis relies on the Rassu/Casiraghi's vinylogous aldol reaction, an intramolecular oxa-heteroconjugate addition and a reductive amination to(More)
The first total synthesis of the alkaloid (-)-haliclonin A is reported. The asymmetric synthesis relied on a novel organocatalytic asymmetric conjugate addition of nitromethane with 3-alkenyl cyclohex-2-enone to set the stereochemistry of the all-carbon quaternary stereogenic center. The synthesis also features a Pd-promoted cyclization to form the(More)
The title compound, C13H15NO2, was obtained as a by-product in the Grignard reaction of malimide. The dihedral angle between the five-memebred ring (r.m.s. deviation = 0.005 Å) and the benzene ring is 67.20 (14)°. The benzene ring and the ethyl chain lie to the same side of the five-membered ring. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by O-H⋯O hydrogen(More)
We have developed a one-pot method for the direct intermolecular reductive hydroxyalkylation or alkylation of amines using lactones or esters as the hydroxyalkylating/alkylating reagents. The method is based on the in situ amidation of lactones/esters with DIBAL-H-amine complex (for primary amines) or DIBAL-H-amine hydrochloride salt complex (for secondary(More)
