During our studies toward the synthesis of the ABC ring system of hexacyclinic acid, we have observed a dramatic influence of the solvent on both our key steps. The diastereoselectivity of the intermolecular Michael addition could be totally reversed by changing the polarity of the solvent, and trifluoroethanol was found to be the optimal solvent for the(More)
BC ring-systems of taxol with different or no protecting group for the C1,C2-diol moiety have been efficiently synthesized. The eight-membered B ring is formed by a ring-closing metathesis reaction (RCM) between the C10 and C11 carbon atoms. The influence of the 1,2-diol protecting group on the RCM reaction has been studied in detail.
We have developed a tandem conjugate addition-elimination sequence for the diastereoselective synthesis of protected allylic syn-1,3-diols, starting from vinyl sulfones. The sulfonyl group was then reduced with sodium amalgam to furnish the E-olefin as the major isomer. This method was applied to the synthesis of a trisubstituted alkene modeling the C21-C25(More)
The use of olefin cross metathesis in preparing functional polymers, through either pre-functionalisation of monomers or post-polymerisation functionalisation is growing in both scope and breadth. The broad functional group tolerance of olefin metathesis offers a wealth of opportunities for introducing a broad range of functional groups into the polymer(More)
Normal CBA mouse spleen cells were specifically depleted of cells spontaneously reacting to pigeon erythrocytes (PRBC) by two methods, the first allows specific depletion of anti-PRBC thymus derived (T) rosette forming cells (RFC) whereas the second depletes bone marrow derived (B) anti-PRBC hemolytic plaque forming cells (PFC). Depleted populations(More)
