The first total synthesis for the (Z)-17-methyl-13-octadecenoic acid was accomplished in seven steps and in a 45% overall yield. The use of (trimethylsilyl)acetylene was key in the synthesis. Based(More)
The fatty acids (±)-2-methoxy-6Z-heptadecenoic acid (1), (±)-2-methoxy-6-heptadecynoic acid (2) and (±)-2-methoxyheptadecanoic acid (3) were synthesized and their inhibitory activity against the(More)
Sponges biosynthesize α-methoxylated fatty acids with unusual biophysical and biological properties and in some cases they display enhanced anticancer activities. However, the antiprotozoal(More)
The first total syntheses of the naturally occurring acetylenic fatty acids—6-heptadecynoic acid (59% overall yield) and 6-icosynoic acid (34% overall yield)—was accomplished in four steps. Using the(More)
