Germanicane-type triterpenes allobetulin (3) and 28-oxoallobetulin (4) can be obtained by the Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement of the more available lupane-type triterpenes betulin (1) and betulinic acid (2), respectively. The medical uses of betulinic acid (2) and its derivatives are limited because of their poor hydrosolubility and pharmacokinetics(More)
Symmetric and nonsymmetric diindolocarbazoles were successfully synthesized for the first time by a Cadogan ring closure using N-alkyl-2,7-disubstituted carbazole precursors. Cyclization reaction on N-alkyl-2,7-di(2'-nitrophenyl) carbazole derivatives is not regioselective and produced a separable mixture of symmetric and nonsymmetric diindolocarbazoles. A(More)
[structure: see text] New and facile synthesis of symmetric diindolocarbazoles was developed using the copper-catalyzed Ullmann reaction. The key step is a double-intramolecular cyclization reaction realized on N-alkyl-3,6-dibromo-2,7-bis(2'aminophenyl)carbazole derivatives which offers the desired symmetric ladder oligo(p-aniline)s. Depending upon the(More)
A new series of betulinic acid and betulin derivatives were synthesized by introducing a D-glycerol moiety at the C-3 and/or C-28 positions of the lupane skeleton. The resulting glyceryl esters were evaluated in vitro for their cytotoxic activity against A549, DLD-1 and WS1 human cell lines. The structure-activity relationships study revealed that the(More)
