Stereoselective synthesis of cis-2,5-disubstituted THFs: application to adjacent bis-THF cores of Annonaceous acetogenins.
N-Iodosuccinimide (NIS) effectively worked as an activator of the double bonds in the substrates and the silyl enol ether to produce cis-2,5-disubstituted tetrahydrofurans in one pot via siloxy intermediates. Expand
The first asymmetric total syntheses of both enantiomers of cryptocaryone
The first asymmetric total syntheses of the (+)- and (−)-cryptocaryones are described. Removal of the acetal unit of the enone acetal 5, which was obtained in our previous study from theExpand
Catalytic methanation of methanol
To produce town gas catalytic methanation of methanol was investigated in the temperature range of 300-350°C. Nickel and alumina were excellent components of the catalyst. The catalysts containingExpand
