An efficient synthesis of (±)-trans,cis-4-hydroxy-5,6-di-O-isopropylidenecyclohex-2-ene-1-one (3) has been developed from acetonide-protected meso-1,2-dihydrocatechol derivative 1 via photooxygenation, then Kornblum-DeLaMare rearrangement. The product is unstable unless its 4-hydroxy group is protected, as it undergoes facile dimerization in solution to a(More)
A flow method for the synthesis of aliphatic and aromatic diazoketones from acyl chloride precursors has been developed and used to prepare quinoxalines in a multistep sequence without isolation of the potentially explosive diazoketone. The protocol showcases an efficient in-line purification using supported scavengers with time-saving and safety benefits(More)
Syntheses of two 4-phenylpiperidines from bromobenzene have been developed involving anchoring to a fluorous-tag, Ir-catalysed borylation, Pd- and Co-catalysed elaboration then traceless cleavage. Although performed using 'cold' (i.e. unlabelled) bromobenzene as the starting material, these routes have been designed to minimise material loss via volatile(More)
Strategies for the use of germanium-based linkers for the phase-tagged synthesis of isotopically labelled intermediates are described. Protocols of potential use in the devolatilization of volatile intermediates prepared from [C]-CO2 and [ C]-PhBr to aid ADME studies on drug substances and their metabolites are discussed in relation to SR47035 (an advanced(More)
The 1,4-addition of the lithium enolate of methyldithioacetate (LMDTA) to (+/-)-4-O-TBS-2-cyclohexenone (3) can be varied from being highly 3,4-trans selective to being highly 3,4-cis selective simply by varying the reaction temperature. This stereodivergency allows expedient syntheses of the corresponding trans and cis methyl esters 6t and 6c and derived(More)
