The organocatalytic Michael addition of malonates to symmetric unsaturated 1,4-diketones catalyzed by thiourea and squaramide derivatives with Cinchona alkaloids afforded the formation of a new C-C bond in high yields (up to 98%) and enantiomeric purities (up to 93%). The absolute configuration of the product was suggested from comparison of the… (More)
A new approach is presented to solve the problem of a long separation time in the second dimension of comprehensive two-dimensional chromatography. The need for a rapid separation in the second column is overcome by repeating analysis of a sample many times. In each of these individual analysis cases the sample is injected into the first dimension column… (More)
The concept of the remote activation of reactivity was first applied in asymmetric organocatalysis. An isatin 3-phenylimine derivative acts as a donor in the thiourea catalyzed asymmetric addition to unsaturated 1,4-ketoesters, affording aza-Michael adducts in high enantiomeric purity and yield.
In the title compound, C(10)H(22)N(2) (2+)·2Br(-), a precursor in the synthesis of organocatalysts, the bipiperidinium ion is located on a twofold rotation axis which passes through the mid-point of the central C-C bond. The piperidinium ring adopts a chair conformation. In the crystal, the cations are linked together by Br(-) ions through N-H⋯Br hydrogen… (More)
Tertiary cyclopropanols easily available from carboxylic esters have been used in the synthesis of distally fluorinated ketones. Cyclopropane ring cleavage reactions in methanol with aqueous tert-butyl hydroperoxide in the presence of a copper(ii) acetate catalyst and sodium triflinate (Langlois reagent) afford β-trifluoromethyl ketones in 16-74% isolated… (More)
