The Knoevenagel condensation of 1,3-dihydro-2H-indol-2-one with ferrocene carboxaldehyde afforded an approximate 2:1 mixture of the geometrical isomers (E)- and (Z)-3-ferrocenylmethylidene-1,3-dihydro-2H-indol-2-one respectively in an overall 67% yield; the air and solution-stable isomers were readily separated by preparative thin layer chromatography and(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the silver(I) chloride complex of formula {[AgCI(CMBZT)(TPTP)(2)] . (MeOH)} (1) (CMBZT = 5-chloro-2-mercaptobenzothiazole, TPTP = tris(p-tolyl)phosphine) is described. Also the structure of the hydrate derivative {[AgCI(TPTP)(3)] . (0.5 . H(2)O)} (2) of the corresponding known anhydrous silver complex (Zartilas et al.,(More)
Room temperature iodocyclisation of homoallylamines stereoselectively delivers functionalised 2-(iodomethyl)azetidine derivatives in high yield. Increasing reaction temperature from 20 °C to 50 °C switches the reaction outcome to realise the stereoselective formation of functionalised 3-iodopyrrolidine derivatives. It was shown that these pyrrolidines are(More)
A concise, stereoselective synthesis of the trans-hydrindane core of the marine natural product dictyoxetane is reported, starting from a Robinson annelation derived bicyclic enone. A phosphorane-mediated, pinacol-like rearrangement of a cis-diol, via a formal 1,2-hydride shift, is used to establish the requisite trans ring junction. (31)P NMR supports the(More)
The FK506-FKBP12 binding-domain of the kinase FRAP (FRB) forms a classic up-down four-helical bundle. The folding pathway of this protein has been investigated using a combination of equilibrium and kinetic studies. The native state of the protein is stable with respect to the unfolded state by some 7 kcal mol(-1) at pH 6.0, 10 degrees C. A kinetic analysis(More)
α-Hydroxyalkylidene carbenes, generated from thermolysis of α,β-epoxy-N-aziridinylimines, undergo diastereotopic group selective 1,5 C–H insertion reactions on 2,4-dimethyl-8-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]oct-6-ene ring systems. Protection of a tertiary alcohol at C-3 of the bridged oxabicycle as a trimethylsilyl ether reverses the sense of diastereoselectivity. 1,5 C–H(More)
In an approach to the biologically important 6-azabicyclo[3.2.1]octane ring system, the scope of the tandem 4-exo-trig carbamoyl radical cyclization-dithiocarbamate group transfer reaction to ring-fused β-lactams is evaluated. β-Lactams fused to five-, six-, and seven-membered rings are prepared in good to excellent yield, and with moderate to complete(More)
