A second generation radioimmunoassay (RIA) and enzyme-linked immunoassay (EIA) for the detection and quantitation of the antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) was developed which utilizes recombinant DNA-derived HBsAg (rHBsAg) in place of human plasma derived HBsAg. In these sandwich assays, rHBsAg immobilized on a solid phase was used to(More)
The first Rh-catalyzed C-H amidation of pyridines is reported. The incorporation of a substituent at the C2 position both is crucial to the success of this transformation and provides considerable scope for further elaboration of the resulting products. Among these compounds, 2-chloropyridines allow access to a selection of intermediates including a(More)
A Rh-catalyzed ortho-amidation of 2-aryloxazolines offers an efficient and direct route to a range of sulfonamides. The scope of the reaction is very broad with respect to sulfonamide substrate, but the position and electronic nature of the substituents on the aryl moiety of the oxazoline lead to a surprising modulation of reactivity. The reactivity of(More)
The designation of E/Z-geometrical isomers in 3-acylidene 2-oxindoles by NMR spectroscopy can lead to erroneous assignment of alkene stereochemistry because of the narrow chemical shift range observed over a large series of analogues. In contrast, UV-Vis spectroscopy offers a convenient and more reliable method for alkene stereochemical assignment. A(More)
A Cu-promoted cyclization of 2-nitrophenyl iodoacetylenes provides a direct route to a range of 2-iodoisatogens. These compounds represent useful intermediates for the late-stage elaboration of the C-I bond to furnish isatins and a range of alternative heterocyclic products.
