Investigation of Capparis spinosa of Jordanian origin lead to isolation of two new compounds beta-sitosterylglucoside-6'-octadecanoate (1) and 3-methyl-2-butenyl-beta-glucoside (2). Linked Scan MS measurements were used to propose a mass fragmentation pattern for the alkaloid Cadabicine isolated here for the second time from nature.
The halogenated benzenes C(6)HF(5), 2,4,6-C(6)H(3)F(3), 2,3,5,6-C(6)H(2)F(4), C(6)F(6), C(6)Cl(6), C(6)Br(6), and C(6)I(6) were converted into their corresponding cation radicals by using various strong oxidants. The cation-radical salts were isolated and characterized by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and by single-crystal X-ray(More)
Alternating copolymerization of carbon monoxide with ethylene or 1-olefins in aqueous emulsion by water-insoluble palladium(II) complexes is reported. Latices of aliphatic polyketones (1-olefin/CO copolymers and ethylene/undec-10-enoic acid/CO terpolymers), prepared by catalytic polymerization, are described for the first time. An in situ catalyst system(More)
One-electron oxidation of two series of diaryldichalcogenides (C6F5E)2 (13a-c) and (2,6-Mes2C6H3E)2 (16a-c) was studied (E = S, Se, Te). The reaction of 13a and 13b with AsF5 and SbF5 gave rise to the formation of thermally unstable radical cations [(C6F5S)2]˙+ (14a) and [(C6F5Se)2]˙+ (14b) that were isolated as [Sb2F11]- and [As2F11]- salts, respectively.(More)
Three new seco-ursadiene triterpenoids 1-3 together with 11 known compounds were isolated from Salvia syriaca of Jordanian origin. The compounds were identified by using NMR spectroscopy including extensive 2D NMR experiments and mass spectrometry. The structure of compound 3 was confirmed by X-ray crystallography, and the information thus obtained was used(More)
In the title compound, [RuCl(2)(C(5)H(14)N(2))(C(18)H(15)P)(2)], the Ru(II) atom is six-coordinated, forming a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry, with two chloride ions in an axial arrangement, and two P atoms of two triphenyl-phosphane and two chelating N atoms of the bidentate 2,2-dimethyl-propane-1,3-diamine ligand located in the equatorial plane.(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(21)H(18)ClN(3)O(2)S, contains two mol-ecules in which the bond lengths and angles are almost identical. Intra-molecular N-H⋯S hydrogen bonds result in the formation of two five-membered rings. In the crystal structure, inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into centrosymmetric dimers; these(More)
Lithium complexes were prepared with phenylphosphinic and phenylphosphonic 15 acids. The complexes were studied in the solid state using Fourier transform infrared spec16 troscopy spectroscopy and in solution (methanol) using 1H, 13C, and 31P Nuclear magnetic 17 resonance spectroscopy (NMR) spectroscopy; the most preferred structures of the complexes 18(More)
