A quantitative J-correlation pulse sequence is described that allows simultaneous determination of one-bond and two-bond nitrogen-carbon coupling constants for protonated or deuterated proteins. Coupling constants are calculated from volume ratios between cross peaks and reference axial peaks observed in a single 3D spectrum. Accurate backbone (1)J(NC'),(More)
4,6-Disubstituted-2-(4-morpholinyl)pyrimidines, an important class of bioactive compounds, have been synthesized from 4,6-dichloro-2-(4-morpholinyl)pyrimidine by selective and sequential palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions using triorganoindium reagents. This methodology, being efficient and versatile, allowed the synthesis of a variety of(More)
A versatile enantioselective total synthesis of barrenazines A and B has been accomplished from 1,4-butanediol. The key steps of the synthesis are a sequential allylboration/ring-closing metathesis for the construction of the tetrahydropyridine ring and the preparation of a functionalized 4-azidopiperidin-5-one through a stereoselective epoxidation and(More)
Fumaquinone, a novel prenylated naphthoquinone antibiotic, was synthetized from ethyl acetoacetate in three steps (58% overall yield). The key step of the synthesis is the construction of the naphthoquinone skeleton by a regioselective Diels-Alder reaction between a 2-alkyl 1,3-bis(trimethylsilyloxy)-1,3-diene derivative and a bromoquinone. This short and(More)
Triorganoindium reagents (R3In, R = aryl, heteroaryl, alkynyl) react selectively under palladium catalysis with N-benzyl-2,4,5-triiodoimidazole to afford the C-2 monocoupling products. The reaction proceeds efficiently for a variety of aryl- and heteroarylindium reagents with the transfer of all three organic groups attached to the metal. The coupling(More)
The first total synthesis of (+)-neomarinone has been achieved by following a concise and convergent route using methyl (R)-lactate and (R)-3-methylcyclohexanone as chiral building blocks. Key steps of the synthesis are the stereocontrolled formation of the two quaternary stereocenters by diastereoselective 1,4-conjugate addition and enolate alkylation(More)
Indium(III) halides catalyze efficiently the intramolecular hydroarylation (IMHA) of aryl propargyl ethers. The reaction proceeds regioselectively with terminal and internal alkynes bearing electron-rich and electron-deficient substituents in the benzenes and alkynes affording only the 6-endo dig cyclization product. Additionally, a sequential(More)
