Exploiting phosphonate chemistry in metal-mediated dearomatization: stereoselective construction of functionalized spirolactams from arene ruthenium complexes.
An asymmetric spirocyclization was demonstrated through application of this procedure to a beta-amido phosphonate prepared from (S)-(-)-alpha-methyl benzylamine and the expected spirolactam product was obtained as a single enantiomer. Expand
Metal-mediated dearomatization leading to 2-azaspiro[4.5]decanes via tandem nucleophilic aromatic addition–Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons olefination–oxidative demetalation sequences
Abstract A ruthenium-mediated dearomatization sequence has been developed that delivers structurally intriguing azaspirolactam products in stereoselective fashion. Treatment of (η 6Expand
Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Fabricated From Atomic Layer Deposited Photoanodes on Aerogel Scaffolds
Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) based on mesoporous, high surface area nanocrystalline titania (TiO2) exhibiting up to 11% solar energy-conversion efficiencies are promising materials forExpand
Solid dispersions have attracted considerable interest as an efficient means of improving the dissolution rate and hence the bioavailability of a range of poorly water-soluble drugs. SolidExpand
