Environmental and security applications have generated major demands for effective field-deployable tools for detecting nitroaromatic compounds, such as chloramphenicol (an antibiotic), parathion (an organophosphate nerve agent), and TNT (2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, an explosive) in a fast, simple, sensitive, reliable, and cost-effective manner. We report here a(More)
This review presents examples from the chemical literature of syntheses of bridged-polycyclic products via C-H bond insertion by carbenes and nitrenes. Applications to natural product synthesis, a description of the essential elements in substrate-controlled reactions, and mechanistic details of transformations are presented. Overall, these transformations(More)
Bis-heteroaryl or bis-aryl stereocenters were formed by an organocatalytic enantioselective conjugate addition using the respective trifluoroborate salts as nucleophiles. Control studies suggested that fluoride dissociation is necessary in the anhydrous conditions. This strategy is applicable to the synthesis of discoipyrrole D, an inhibitor of BR5(More)
