The Factorization Method, a well established method in inverse scattering problems for bounded obstacles, is extended to the case of scattering by a periodic surface. The method is rigorously proved to provide accurate reconstructions for the cases of the total field satisfying a Dirichlet or an impedance boundary condition on the scattering surface. A(More)
Enantiomeric separation of two aromatic alpha-substituted alanine esters was achieved on two commercially available polysaccharide-based chiral stationary phases (CSPs): amylose tris(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) (ADMPC) and cellulose tris(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) (CDMPC). The interactions between enantiomeric analytes and the CSPs were investigated(More)
[reaction: see text] Diisobutylaluminum hydride (DIBAL-H) and triisobutylaluminum have been found to be outstanding reductants for secondary phosphine oxides (SPOs). All classes of SPOs can be readily reduced, including diaryl, arylalkyl, and dialkyl members. Many SPOs can now be reduced at cryogenic temperatures, and conditions for preservation of(More)
This paper explores the role of association on the adsorption isotherms of beta-lactoglobulin A on a weakly hydrophobic stationary phase at 4 degrees C and mobile phases of 0.85 M and 1 M ammonium sulfate, pH 4.5. The isotherms, obtained by frontal analysis, show an S-shape and the corresponding Scatchard plots indicate positive cooperativity. The slopes(More)
Cellulose and cellulose derivatives are biopolymers which are often used as stationary phases for the separation of enantiomers. Describing the mechanism of such separations is a difficult task due to the complexity of these phases. In the present study, we attempt to elucidate the types of interactions occurring between a diol intermediate for a LTD(4)(More)
The separation of [2R-[2alpha(R*),3alpha]]-5-[[2-[1-[3,5-bis-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]ethoxy]-3(S)-4-fluorophenyl)4-morpholinyl]-methyl]-N,N-dimethyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-methanamine hydrochloride from its enantiomer was achieved on an amylose tris-3,5-dimethylphenyl carbamate stationary phase. The retention of the enantiomers is dominated by weak hydrogen(More)
Allenes are cumulenes with three contiguous carbons linked together through double bonds. 1,3-disubstituted allenes are not superimposable on their mirror image; as a consequence they are chiral. Chiral allenes are increasingly important in organic synthesis due to their interesting reactivity. Because of their applications in the field of asymmetric(More)
A search was implemented for a microbial lipase capable of bioconverting a diester (dimethyl 5-(3-(2-(7-chloroquinolin-2-yl)ethyl)phenyl)4,6-dithianon to its S-ester acid, an intermediate in the production of Verlukast (a leukotriene receptor antagonist). Required properties of the sought-after enzyme included a high enantiomeric selectivity (e.e. >98%),(More)
An efficient asymmetric synthesis of 11-β-HSD inhibitor 1 has been accomplished in five linear steps and 53% overall yield, starting from the readily available 3-chloro-1-phenylpropan-1-one. The key feature of the synthesis includes an asymmetric methallylation of 3-chloro-1-phenylpropan-1-one catalyzed by the highly effective organocatalyst(More)
Using reversed-phase high-performance thin-layer chromatography and a methanol-water mixture as the mobile phase, the lipophilicity of 12 new synthesized derivatives is studied. The first eight compounds have as a basic chemical structure aryliden-hydrazino-selenazoles, and the second group of the three compounds belongs to aroyl-hydrazinoselenazoles. The(More)
