Compound 1 ((-)-gossypol) has been long known as a chemical anticancer agent. With its low water solubility and toxicity, it is not widely used as a commercial drug. To overcome these disadvantages, several novel derivatives of gossypol were designed, synthesized, and analyzed. One of the derivatives, compound 7 (6-aminopenicillanic acid(More)
We report a paracyclophane N-Me thioamide chiral reagent for the asymmetric thio-Claisen rearrangement with high diasteroselectivity. Comparisons between candidate chiral reagent N-phenyl-N-([2.2]paracyclophan-4-yl)amide, N-methyl amide, N-phenyl thioamide, and N-methyl thioamide are made both by experiment and theoretical calculations to clarify the(More)
In the presented paper we investigated a 2-pyridylthiazole derivative, 4-phenyl-2-(2-pyridyl)thiazole (2-PTP), as the molecular fluorescent switches. It was firstly found that 2-PTP could perform a “turn-on” fluorescent sensing for Fe(III) with selectivity and reversibility. A 2:1 stoichiometry between 2-PTP and Fe(III) was determined according to the molar(More)
With the idea of tuning structural flexibility and rigidity, several [2.2]paracyclophane-derived P,N-ligands were designed and synthesized. A full investigation of the relationship between the ligands' structures and their abilities to induce asymmetry in palladium-catalyzed asymmetric allylic alkylations of malonates with 1,3-diphenyl 2-propenyl acetate(More)
Copper-catalyzed asymmetric conjugate addition of diethylzinc to chalcones could be realized by using [2.2]paracyclophane-derived monodentate phosphoramidite ligands. The excellent yield and enantioselectivity (up to 98% yield and 95% enantiomeric excess) could be realized with low catalyst loading of 1.0 mol % and low ligand loading of 1.2%.
