[reaction: see text] The first synthesis of (-)-panacene has been accomplished in concise, highly stereoselective fashion from commercially available 2-methoxy-6-methylbenzoic acid (15 steps, 8.3% overall yield). The synthesis unambiguously establishes the correct relative and absolute configuration of panacene, and demonstrates the serviceability of(More)
Oxidation of various cyclic and acyclic ketones under mild conditions with chlorocatecholborane, a bulky pyridine base, and TEMPO to the corresponding α-aminoxylated products in good to excellent yields (52-99%) is described. For enones as substrates, products of a β-chloro-α-aminoxylation are obtained (70-89%).
