Short syntheses of (-)-enterolactone (1a) and (7'R)-7'-hydroxyenterolactone (1b) have been achieved utilizing organocatalyzed asymmetric cross-aldol reaction of aldehydes 2 and 3 and base-mediated alkylation of lactones 5 and 4.
The first synthesis of coprinol has been achieved from 2-methoxy-3,5-dimethylbenzaldehyde via the intermediacy of an indanone derivative where dialkylation, Friedel-Crafts acylation, demethylation, and regioselective formation of a primary -OH group from a chloroacetyl group are the key steps.
Direct synthesis of carboxylic-phosphinic mixed anhydrides has been achieved by treating carbon dioxide with N-phosphine oxide-substituted imidazolylidenes (PoxIms) that contain both nucleophilic carbene and electrophilic phosphorus moieties. This novel mixed anhydride was efficiently derivatized into an ester, an amide, and an unsymmetrical ketone via… (More)
This article discusses the concept of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) equipped with more than one functional moiety, which allows using these NHCs for multiple purposes. A pioneering example for such NHCs is N-phosphine oxide-substituted imidazolylidenes (PoxIms), and their synthesis and strategic use are highlighted. The utility of PoxIms by far exceeds the… (More)
