Two new saikosaponins have been identified in the butanolic fraction of the ethanol extract of the roots of Bupleurum spinosum: 3beta,16alpha,23,28-tetrahydroxyoleana-11,13(18)-dien- 30-oic acid 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 --> 2)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 --> 3)-beta-D-fucopyranoside, and 3beta,16alpha,23,28,30-pentahydroxyoleana-11,13(18)-diene… (More)
Among the phytoalexins with the highest antifungal activity is the isoflavonoid based group of pterocarpans. Here, we present a comprehensive inventory of the structures and sources of pterocarpans, and summarize some of their most interesting biological activities.
A new strategy for the diastereoselective and convergent synthesis of pterocarpans which is able to control the relative stereochemistry of the molecule through allylation of aromatic aldehydes with cyclic allylsiloxanes is described.
The unprecedented homolytic opening of ozonides promoted and catalyzed by titanocene(III) is reported. This novel reaction proceeds at room temperature under neutral, mild conditions compatible with many functional groups and provides carbon radicals suitable to form C-C bonds via both homocoupling and cross-coupling processes. The procedure has been… (More)
2,3-Dihydrobenzofurans can be diastereoselectively prepared by condensation of aromatic aldehydes with 2,3-dihydrobenzoxasilepines under the catalysis of Ag(I) complexes, and in the presence of a source of fluoride ion. The application of this strategy by using chiral catalysts leads to a new enantioselective total synthesis of natural cis-pterocarpans and… (More)
Condensation of 2H-benzo[g][1,2]oxasilocines with aromatic aldehydes in the presence of boron trifluoride affords mixtures of cis/trans 2-phenyl-3-vinylchromans with moderate yields. These can be transformed into homopterocarpans, a synthetic group of substances homologous to the natural isoflavonoid pterocarpans.
The condensation of 2,3-dihydrobenzoxasilepins with aromatic aldehydes in the presence of boron trifluoride to form 2,3-dihydrobenzofurans shows a level of diastereoselection which is a function of the electronic nature of the aldehyde and the polarity of the solvent. The study of the mechanism of the reaction demonstrated that it proceeds through a… (More)
The total synthesis of natural pterocarpans and analogs is reviewed.
