This review highlights the development of palladium-catalyzed C-H and N-H functionalization reactions involving indole derivatives. These procedures require unactivated starting materials and are respectful of the basic principle of sustainable chemistry tied to atom economy.
This paper introduces two new algorithms, belonging to the class of Arnoldi-Tikhonov regularization methods, which are particularly appropriate for sparse reconstruction. The main idea is to consider suitable adaptively-defined regularization matrices that allow the usual 2-norm regularization term to approximate a more general regularization term expressed(More)
SUMMARY This paper introduces a new strategy for setting the regularization parameter when solving large-scale discrete ill-posed linear problems by means of the Arnoldi-Tikhonov method. This new rule is essentially based on the discrepancy principle, although no initial knowledge of the norm of the error that affects the right-hand side is assumed; an(More)
Malonyl carba(dethia) N-decanoyl cysteamine methyl esters and novel acetoxymethyl esters were utilised as second-generation probes for polyketide intermediate capture. The use of these tools in vivo led to the characterisation of an almost complete set of biosynthetic intermediates from a modular assembly line, providing a first kinetic overview of(More)
Two synthetic approaches to boehmeriasin A are described. A gram scale racemic preparation is accompanied by an efficient preparation of both the pure enantiomers using the conformationally stable 2-piperidin-2-yl acetaldehyde as starting material. The anti-proliferative activity in three cancer cell lines (CEM, HeLa and L1210) and two endothelial cell(More)
A series of 1,7,8,8a-tetrahydro-3H-oxazolo[3,4-a]pyrazin-6(5H)-ones has been synthesized by an intramolecular, palladium(II) catalyzed, aminooxygenation of alkenyl ureas, readily available from glycine allylamides as starting materials. Biological tests showed that the obtained compounds are endowed with an interesting antitumoral activity against two human(More)
