The DEOS Mass Transport release 1 (DMT-1) model has been produced on the basis of intersatellite K-band ranging data acquired by the GRACE satellite mission. The functional model exploited in the data processing can be considered as a variant of the acceleration approach. Each element of the data vector is defined as a linear combination of three successive(More)
This paper describes the synthesis of a bicyclic beta-amino acid scaffold in both pure enantiomeric forms and its application as chiral auxiliary in an intramolecular version of the Ugi multicomponent reaction (U-5C-4CR) to prepare alpha-amino acid derivatives of both D- and L-series in a straightforward and very stereoselective manner. The mild conditions(More)
α-Azido aldehydes can be employed in Passerini reactions with isocyanides and various propiolic acids to afford the three-component adducts in moderate to good yields. These compounds undergo a straightforward azide-alkyne dipolar cycloaddition to furnish triazolo-fused dihydrooxazinones.
Azidobenzaldehydes can be used in Passerini three-component condensations to synthesize small collections of triazolo-fused heterocycles in an efficient and combinatorial fashion upon post-condensation azide–alkyne cycloadditions. Triazolo-fused benzoxazepinones were obtained in moderate to good overall yields with a concise two-step protocol.(More)
β-Acylamino-α-hydroxyamides andβ-acylamino-α-oxoamides, compounds known to be potent protease inhibitors, can be conveniently prepared with a highly convergent strategy involving a Passerini multicomponent reaction between a N-protected α-aminoaldehyde, a carboxylic acid and an isocyanide. After N-deprotection and concomitant acyl migration the desired(More)
The synthesis of new conformationally biased cyclic pentapeptides, incorporating the RGD sequence, and built around a tetrahydroazoninone scaffold, is reported. They exhibit interesting activity towards integrin alphaVbeta3 and a remarkable selectivity in comparison with integrin alphaVbeta5.
A short, two-step approach to the synthesis of diazepane or diazocane systems, based on a Ugi multicomponent reaction followed by a subsequent intramolecular SN2 reaction was studied. 1-sulfonyl tetrahydrobenzo[e]-1,4-diazepin-1-ones 1 were obtained in very high yield through a Ugi multicomponent reaction followed by Mitsunobu cyclization. On the other(More)
Various dihydrobenzo[f][1,4]oxazepin-5-ones have been convergently prepared in 2-3 steps by coupling Ugi and Mitsunobu reactions. Two alternative methodologies were used: in the first one the Ugi condensation was followed by a Mitsunobu cyclization (2 steps); in the second one an intermolecular Mitsunobu reaction was followed by a deprotection step and then(More)
The reaction of isocyanides with electron deficient alkynes has been first reported in 1969, about ten years after the first reports on the famous Ugi four component reaction. However it took about thirty years to realise that the zwitterionic intermediate originating from interaction of the two species could be trapped by a third component, thus giving the(More)
