A promising anode material for Li-ion batteries based on MgH₂ with around 5 nm average particles size was synthesized by a bottom-up method. A series of several composites containing MgH₂ nanoparticles well dispersed into a porous carbon host has been prepared with different metal content up to 70 wt%. A narrow particle size distribution (1-10 nm) of the(More)
Syntheses of aryloxyalkanoic acid hydroxyamides are described, all of which are potent inhibitors of histone deacetylase, some being more potent in vitro than trichostatin A (IC(50)=3 nM). Variation of the substituents on the benzene ring as well as fusion of a second ring have marked effects on potency, in vitro IC(50) values down to 1 nM being obtained.
An array of alpha-branched amines has been prepared by using an expedient three-component Mannich-type reaction among organic halides, aldehyde derivatives, and amines. The experimental procedure, which is characterized by its simplicity, employs zinc dust for the in situ generation of organozinc reagents. We show that this Barbier-like protocol constitutes(More)
A range of alpha-amino esters has been synthesized in good to high yields using a straightforward three-component reaction among preformed or in situ generated aromatic or benzylic organozinc reagents, primary or secondary amines, and ethyl glyoxylate. The procedure, which is characterized by its simplicity, allows the concise synthesis of esters bearing a(More)
A general efficient electrochemical method for the preparation of aryl- and heteroarylpyridazines in a nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of 3-chloro-6-methoxypyridazine and 3-chloro-6-methylpyridazine with a range of functionalized aryl or heteroaryl halides is reported.
A range of novel 4-amino-6-arylpyrimidines has been prepared under mild conditions by an electrochemical reductive cross-coupling between 4-amino-6-chloro-pyrimidines and functionalized aryl halides. The process, which employs a sacrificial iron anode in conjunction with a nickel(II) catalyst, allows the formation of coupling products in moderate to high(More)
3-Amino-6-aryl- and 3-amino-6-heteroarylpyridazines have been obtained in generally good yield using a nickel-catalyzed electrochemical cross-coupling between 3-amino-6-chloropyridazines and aryl or heteroaryl halides at room temperature. Comparative experiments involving classical palladium-catalyzed reactions, such as Suzuki, Stille, or Negishi(More)
The multicomponent synthesis of α,β-disubstituted N-sulfonyl β-amino esters is described. It involves a zinc-mediated, cobalt-catalyzed three-component reaction between sulfonylimines, acrylates and organic bromides. A possible mechanism is proposed, emphasizing the intermediate formation of an organocobalt as the initiator of a Mannich-like process.
Various 2,3-substituted γ-butyrolactones have been synthesized by three-component reaction of aryl bromides, dimethyl itaconate and carbonyl compounds. The in vitro cytotoxic activity of these products was evaluated against a representative panel of cancer cell lines (KB, HCT116, MCF7, MCF7R, PC3, SK-OV3, HL60 and HL60R). One compound (4x) displays a good(More)
