A novel and efficient route to 4-halogenated N-substituted 2(1H)-pyridinones has been developed via a one-pot domino process of readily available alpha-acetyl-alpha-carbamoyl ketene dithioacetals with Vilsmeier reagents. These 4-halogenated-2(1H)-pyridinones constitute useful intermediates due to the easy elaboration on either the pyridinone core (by the(More)
An efficient synthetic method for 4-functionalized quinoline derivatives, 4-((1,3-dithian-2-ylidene)methyl)quinolines, has been developed. Mediated by trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, ethynyl ketene-S,S-acetals can react in a one-pot procedure with various arylamines and aldehydes under mild conditions to give the corresponding quinoline derivatives in good(More)
We report here that polysubstituted dihydroisoquinolones and isoquinolones can be constructed by the one-pot reaction of the readily available acyclic α,β-unsaturated carbonyl precursors and dialkyl glutaconates under mild basic conditions (1-45 min for the former vs. 1-6 h for the latter) via the domino process involving [3+3] annulation/intramolecular(More)
Diagnosing and quantifying plant-parasitic nematodes is critical for efficient nematode management. Several studies have been performed intending to demonstrate nematode quantification via real-time quantitative PCR. However, most of the studies used dilution of DNA templates to make standard curves, while few studies used samples with different nematode(More)
A base-mediated aerobic oxidation of the C-H bond adjacent to the N-atom of a secondary amine to form an imine intermediate under mild metal-free basic conditions has been developed. Accordingly, this new strategy has been successfully applied to the synthesis of various di-, tri-, and tetra-substituted α-aminocyclopentenones through a tandem aerobic(More)
A trapezoidal cantilever density sensor is developed based on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. The sensor measures fluid density through the relationship between the density and the resonant frequency of the cantilever immersed in the fluid. To improve the sensitivity of the sensor, the modal and harmonic response analyses of trapezoidal(More)
Single step: Fused bicyclic and bridged tricyclic ketals were synthesized in a single step from the reactions of easily available 4-acyl-1,6-diynes with H(2)O and alkanols (see scheme). The highly efficient AuCl(3)-catalyzed multicomponent domino reactions, involving five C-O bond formations, can proceed in a highly regio- and diastereoselective manner at(More)
A new benzannulation strategy that proceeds via a regiospecific [4 + 2] cycloaddition of readily available cyclobutenones and active methylene ketones has been developed. On the basis of this strategy, persubstituted phenols/anilines with up to six different functional groups on the benzene ring were synthesized in a single step. In addition, a series of(More)
Maize nonspecific lipid transfer protein (Zm-nsLTP) was cloned and expressed to investigate its CaM-binding activity. The cDNA of Zm-nsLTP was amplified using RT-PCR (Fig.1), and then inserted into the vector pET32a(+). The recombinant vector pET-Zm-nsLTP was expressed in E. coli BL21(DE3)trxB(-). Results of CaM-gel overlay assays (Fig.2) and CaM-sepharose(More)
A new strategy for the highly efficient one-pot synthesis of 3-amino-/alkylthio-cyclobut-2-en-1-ones based on the cyclization of acyl ketene dithioacetals is disclosed. In addition, the rearrangement of 3-amino-cyclobut-2-en-1-ones to 4-quinolone derivatives is described.
