A mild, practical protocol has been developed for the Suzuki cross-coupling of unprotected thienylsulfonamides from air- and bench-stable organotrifluoroborates in the absence of a protecting group on the sulfonamide nitrogen. The developed synthetic method can be applied to the preparation of various arylated and heteroarylated thienylsulfonamides under(More)
Benzotriazol-1-yl-sulfonyl azide, a new crystalline, stable, and easily available diazotransfer reagent provides N-(α-azidoacyl)benzotriazoles convenient for N-, O-, C- and S-acylations. The efficient syntheses of various amides, azido protected peptides, esters, ketones and thioesters is reported together with a wide range of azides (including α-azido(More)
Direct access to complex, enantiopure benzylamine architectures using a synergistic iridium photoredox/nickel cross-coupling dual catalysis strategy has been developed. New C(sp(3))-C(sp(2)) bonds are forged starting from abundant and inexpensive natural amino acids.
Chemical ligation via O- to N-acyl transfer of O-acylated serine containing peptides affords serine containing native peptides via 8- and 11-membered cyclic transition states opening the door to a wide variety of potential applications to peptide elaboration. The feasibility of these traceless chemical ligations is feasible as supported by computation.
An effective protocol toward the O-arylation of β-hydroxy-α-amino acid substrates serine and threonine has been developed via Chan-Lam cross-coupling. This Cu(II)-catalyzed transformation involves benign open-flask conditions that are well-tolerated with a variety of protected (Boc-, Cbz-, Tr-, and Fmoc-) serine and threonine derivatives and various(More)
