The combination of the readily available chiral bisphosphine ligand Difluorphos with [Ir(COD)Cl](2) in THF resulted in a highly efficient catalyst system for asymmetric hydrogenation of quinolines at quite low catalyst loadings (0.05-0.002 mol%), affording the corresponding products with high enantioselectivities (up to 96%), excellent catalytic activities(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder having close relationship with oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Cortex Fraxini (QP) is a kind of traditional Chinese medicinal herb with antioxidant properties. It may be a potential candidate for preventing the development of chronic neurodegenerative diseases. Thus,(More)
A series of 8-benzyloxy-substituted quinoline ethers (2a–n) compounds were synthesized. All synthesized compounds were screened in vitro for their preliminary antimicrobial activities against two Gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli), two Gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis), and a(More)
