A causative agent, provisionally designated as CARS, was isolated from the enlarged submaxillary gland of rat which was characterized as a sialoadenitis, using mouse-derived Balb/c3T3 clone A31 (3T3) cell culture. The virus could be propagated in 3T3 cell culture where it produced multinucleated giant cells and formed clear plaques. It was identified as a(More)
A practical and highly enantioselective Reformatsky reaction of ethyl bromodifluoroacetate with imines using a cheap and commercially available amino alcohol ligand is described. A variety of α,α-difluoro-β-lactams were obtained in up to 74% yield with high enantioselectivity in excess of 99% ee. The use of ethyl bromodifluoroacetate provides for ease of(More)
The disposition of a polymeric prodrug of mitomycin C (MMC), mitomycin C-dextran conjugate (MMC-D), was studied in the single-pass perfused rat liver in order to clarify the effect of physico-chemical properties, such as molecular weight and electric charge, on the hepatic uptake of MMC-D. Six types of MMC-D were used: both cationic MMC-D (MMC-Dcat) and(More)
We have synthesized novel axially chiral ligand with two chiral centers, (R)-(R)(2)- and (S)-(S)(2)-2,2'-bis(2,2,2-trifluoro-1-hydroxyethyl)biphenyl (1), which showed a high asymmetric induction when used as ligand. Here, another new approach to 1 by kinetic and thermodynamic resolution is presented which gave these ligands in a much shorter steps, in a(More)
An asymmetric reductive aldol-type reaction of α,β-unsaturated esters with carbonyl compounds using Rh catalyst and Et2Zn was investigated. A chiral zinc complex from α,β-unsaturated ester was easily generated as the key intermediate from Et2Zn and Wilkinson's catalyst with diisopropyl L-(+)-tartrate to give a variety of enantioenriched β-hydroxy esters.(More)
A reaction between (E)-trimethyl(3,3,3-trifluoroprop-1-en-1-yl)silane (1) and arylaldehydes 2 was triggered by fluoride anions to afford aryl 3,3,3-trifluoropropyl ketones 3 in moderate to good yield. A mechanistic study of this reaction indicated that it occurred via an allyl alkoxide (4). A subsequent 1,3-proton shift of the benzylic proton of 4 forms 3.(More)
A highly reactive alkylrhodium complex was formed from Me(2)Zn and RhCl(PPh(3))(3) and effectively catalyzed a Csp(3)-Csp(3) homocoupling reaction of benzyl halides. A Csp(3)-Csp(3) coupling reaction using Rh catalyst has not been reported up to now. The reaction proceeded under very mild conditions and gave the corresponding homocoupling products even if(More)
A new fluorous ligand was synthesized from the acetonide of dimethyl tartarate, which showed excellent asymmetric induction on the addition of dimethylzinc to aldehydes. This ligand will be useful for synthesis of bioactive compounds with a methyl carbinol moiety. It could be recycled without using a fluorous solvent or a fluorous column.
An enantioselective Reformatsky reaction has been developed for the reaction of ethyl dibromofluoroacetate (1) with an imine. This method represents the first ligand-promoted imino-Reformatsky approach to use a halofluoroacetate. The use of an amino alcohol ligand allowed for the preparation of enantioenriched α-bromo-α-fluoro-β-lactams in good yields with(More)
