Phenylboronic-acid-modified nanoparticles (NPs) are attracting considerable attention for biological and biomedical applications. We describe here a convenient and general protocol for attaching multiple copies of para-substituted phenylboronic acid moieties onto either iron-oxide-, silica- or diamond-derived NPs. The boronic acid functionalized NPs are all(More)
We describe herein an extension of the halogenation of 1,2 or 1,3-diols via a cyclic thionocarbonate functionality by reaction with an allyl halide instead of methyl iodide, which is usually used. This investigation was successfully carried out under both conventional heating and microwave solvent-free conditions with some alditol, thioanhydroalditol, and(More)
Described herein is a convenient, odorless, metal-free, one-pot strategy for the synthesis of unsymmetrical thioethers. The key step in this new strategy is a base-catalyzed 1,5-thiol transfer reaction via a pseudointramolecular mechanism of a 1-bromo-2-alkylthiolcarbonate, which is itself obtained through a straightforward microwave-assisted thioalkylation(More)
2,3,4,5-Tetra-O-acetyl-1,6-dibromo-1,6-dideoxy-D-glucitol (1a) obtained from D-glucitol was easily transformed into the 1,6-diiodo derivative in excellent yield (97%) by reaction with an excess of sodium iodide in refluxing butanone in 2 h. When the reaction time was prolonged to 24 h and the crude product was acetylated,(More)
The bis-cyclic thionocarbonates of alditols (pentitols and hexitols) were quickly and easily obtained from alditol stannylene complexes and phenyl chlorothionoformate (PhOC(S)Cl) in good yields. Acetylation of isolated free alditol bis-thionocarbonates and subsequent iodination using methyl iodide under pressure led to alpha,omega-diiodo derivatives of(More)
