CuCl-catalyzed cyclization-dimerization reactions of 3-cyclopropylideneprop-2-en-1-ones provide an interesting route to benzofuran-7(3aH)-one derivatives with one highly strained three-membered ring and one four-membered ring via intramolecular cycloisomerization, sequential bimolecular [4 + 2] cycloaddition, opening of the oxa-bridge, and ring contraction.(More)
An unexpected hydroxyphosphinylation of 3-cyclopropylideneprop-2-en-1-ones with phosphines has been observed. This method provides a unique regio- and stereoselective synthesis of highly functionalized 1-dialkylphinyl-3-oxo-(1Z)-alkenyl cyclopropanols with important potentials. The reaction displays an unusual mechanistic feature--a highly selective(More)
A novel PdCl(2)-catalyzed oxidative cycloisomerization of 3-cyclopropylideneprop-2-en-1-ones, providing a facile synthesis of highly strained functionalized 2-alkylidenecyclobutanones via furan-fused cyclobutene intermediates, is reported. An interesting route to 2(3H)-furanones with a spiro-cyclopropane unit from the obtained 2-alkylidenecyclobutanones via(More)
We report in this paper an interesting sequential reaction involving sequential Sonogashira coupling, propargyl-allenyl isomerization, [4 + 2] cycloaddition and aromatization reaction, which provides a facile method for the synthesis of a variety of polycyclic isoindoline derivatives from easily accessible starting materials.
Based on the 2,2-dipicolylamine (DPA) receptor and naphthalimide fluorophore, three fluorescent probes, RDPA, MDPA and VDPA have been developed for the recognition of mercuric ions. Among them, VDPA, bearing a diglycol group in the imine chain, exhibits good water solubility, and high selectivity towards mercuric ions in PBS water solution. With DPA as the(More)
A catalytic cycle involving oxidative addition of nickel(0) with a carbon-carbon single bond in the three-membered ring of diarylmethylenecyclopropa[b]naphthalenes, highly selective cleavage of the C-P bond, and migration of the aryl group of phosphine consequently provides a new type of bulky phosphine in excellent yields.
The development of a suitable fluorescent probe for the specific labeling and imaging of lysosomes through the direct visual fluorescent signal is extremely important for understanding the dysfunction of lysosomes, which might induce various pathologies, including neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Herein, a new carbon dot-based(More)
A ligand-controlled regioselectivity switch of ring-opening coupling reaction of diarylmethylenecyclopropa[b]naphthalenes with Grignard reagents providing differently substituted β-vinylic naphthalenes in moderate to excellent yields was reported: when Pd(OAc)2 was used, the aromatic group from the Grignard reagent regioselectively coupled to the naphthyl(More)
A novel three-component stereoselective synthesis of (E)-4-alkene 1,3-diketones from lithium selenolates, 1-(1-alkynyl)cyclopropyl ketones, and aldehydes is reported. This reaction afforded the products in moderate to good yields with the formation of a new C-Se single bond, a new C-C double bond, and a new C-O double bond.
