Iridium complexes generated from [Ir(OMe)(COD)](2) and tris[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]phosphine efficiently catalyzed the ortho-C-H borylation of benzoate esters with bis(pinacolato)diboron in octane at 80 degrees C to produce the corresponding arylboronates in high yields with excellent regioselectivities.
In order to gain a better understanding of the interaction between immunotoxins and tumor cells at the level of three-dimensional tumor mass, we evaluated the cell kill effects of monoclonal antimelanoma-antibody/ricin-A-chain immunotoxin (ITN) on melanoma cells in multicellular tumor spheroids (MTS) as well as the penetration of ITN into MTS. For Minor(More)
Borylation of the vinylic C--H bond of 1,4-dioxene, 2,3-dihydrofuran, 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran and their gamma-substituted analogs was carried out in the presence of bis(pinacolato)diboron (B(2)pin(2)) and a catalytic amount of Ir(I)-dtbpy (dtbpy=4,4'-di-tert-butyl-2,2'-bipyridine) complex. The two boron atoms in B(2)pin(2) participated in the coupling, thus(More)
Ir(I)-catalyzed C-H borylation of 1-cycloalkenecarboxylic derivatives with bis(pinacolato)diboron affords various alkenylboronates with functional groups in excellent yields. This reaction was also used in a one-pot borylation/Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling procedure.
