The First Direct Synthesis of Corroles from Pyrrole.
The solvent-free, catalyst-free condensation of pyrrole and aldehydes provides an extremely facile synthetic pathway to novel corroles [Eq. (1); Ar=C6 F5 , 2,6-F2 C6 H3 , 2,6-Cl2 C6 H3 ]. The productExpand

Solvent-Free Condensation of Pyrrole and Pentafluorobenzaldehyde: A Novel Synthetic Pathway to Corrole and Oligopyrromethenes
The solvent-free condensation of pyrrole and pentafluorobenzaldehyde (and to a lesser extent other electron-poor aldehydes as well) leads to a variety of products, of which three have been isolatedExpand

First catalysis by corrole metal complexes: epoxidation, hydroxylation, and cyclopropanation
The first ever application of corroles shows that their metal complexes are good catalysts, almost as potent as the corresponding metalloporphyrins in the oxygenation of hydrocarbons byExpand

A novel synthesis of protected glucose intermediates
The 1,2,4,6-Tetra-O-pivaloyl-D-gluco-pyranose 3 and 1,2,3,6-Tetra-O-pivaloyl-D-gluco-pyranose 4 have been prepared in one step from anhydrous glucose and pivaloyl chloride. These new intermediatesExpand

Stereoselective cyclopropanation with a sultam carbenoid
Abstract Stereoselective cyclopropanation of alkenes with the Oppolzer's sultam carbenoid was examined for the first time. The addition reaction proceeds in high yields on substituted alkenes andExpand
