Description: Strategies and Tactics in Organic Synthesis provides a forum for investigators to discuss their approach to the science and art of organic synthesis. Rather than a simple presentation of data or a secondhand analysis, this classic provides stories that vividly demonstrate the power of the human endeavor known as organic synthesis and the… (More)
[reaction: see text] Reaction of N-methylindole (4) with 6,6-dibromobicyclo[3.1.0]hexane (5) in the presence of silver tetrafluoroborate affords conjugate 7 in 67% yield. This product can be readily elaborated to compounds 12b and 13b which embody the polycyclic frameworks associated with members of the hapalindole and fischerindole classes of alkaloids.… (More)
A mild Pd-catalyzed process for the borylation of alkyl bromides has been developed using bis(pinacolato)diboron as a boron source. This process accommodates the use of a wide range of functional groups on the alkyl bromide substrate. Primary bromides react with complete selectivity in the presence of a secondary bromide. The generality of this approach is… (More)
Palladium-mediated Ullmann cross-coupling of 1-bromo-2-nitrobenzene (1 R = H) and its derivatives with a range of beta-halo-enals, -enones, or -esters readily affords the corresponding beta-aryl derivatives, which are converted into the corresponding quinolines, 2-quinolones, phenanthridines, or 6(5H)-phenanthridinones on reaction with dihydrogen in the… (More)
The enantiomeric form, 1R, of the structure (1S) assigned to the phytotoxic natural product phomentrioloxin has been synthesized in seven steps from the homochiral cis-1,2-dihydrocatechol 3. These studies reveal that the true structure of phomentrioloxin is represented by 1R and not by 1S.
Rare-earth ions doped Gd3Ga5O12 nanocrystals have been prepared by a propellant combustion synthesis method and their up-conversion properties were systematically investigated in this paper. XRD, SEM, TEM, and up-conversion emission spectra were used to characterize the synthesized nanocrystals. Energy transfer from Yb3+ to Er3+ and Tm3+ can occur… (More)
