A highly stereoselective approach to (-)-slaframine and its probable biosynthetic precursor (+)-(1S,8aS)-1-hydroxyindolizidine has been developed based on a diastereofacially selective cycloaddition of dichloroketene with a chiral dienol ether.
The Dahra field site in Senegal, West Africa, was established in 2002 to monitor ecosystem properties of semiarid savanna grassland and their responses to climatic and environmental change. This article describes the environment and the ecosystem properties of the site using a unique set of in situ data. The studied variables include hydroclimatic… (More)
—A modified version of the MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) algorithm is presented for use in the angular normalization of surface reflectance data gathered by the Spinning Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI) aboard the geostationary Meteosat Second Generation (MSG)… (More)
A highly stereoselective approach to (-)-2-epilentiginosine and (+)-lentiginosine has been developed based on a diastereofacially selective cycloaddition of dichloroketene with a chiral dienol ether. The two naturally occurring indolizidines are each obtained enantioselectively (> or = 99:1) in ca. 8.5% overall yield.
