Preparing (Multi)Fluoroarenes as Building Blocks for Synthesis: Nickel-Catalyzed Borylation of Polyfluoroarenes via C-F Bond Cleavage.
The [Ni(IMes)2]-catalyzed transformation of fluoroarenes into arylboronic acid pinacol esters via C-F bond activation and transmetalation with bis(pinacolato)diboron (B2pin2) is reported. VariousExpand
Alkene oxyalkylation enabled by merging rhenium catalysis with hypervalent iodine(III) reagents via decarboxylation.
Rhenium-catalyzed oxyalkylation of alkenes is described, where hypervalent iodine(III) reagents derived from widely occurring aliphatic carboxylic acids were used as, for the first time, not only anExpand
Rhenium-catalyzed regiodivergent addition of indoles to terminal alkynes.
An efficient rhenium-catalyzed site-switchable addition of indoles to terminal alkynes is described and preliminary mechanistic study sheds light on the observed regiodivergent addition. Expand
Diastereoconvergent synthesis of trans-5-hydroxy-6-substituted-2-piperidinones by addition-cyclization-deprotection process.
A diastereoselective one-pot approach to access trans-5-hydroxy-6-substituted-2-piperidinones by an addition-cyclization-deprotection process has been developed, in which the stereogenic center atExpand
A Facile and Efficient Synthesis of Diaryl Amines or Ethers under Microwave Irradiation at Presence of KF/Al2O3 without Solvent and Their Anti-Fungal Biological Activities against Six Phytopathogens
Diaryl amines, ethers and thioethers synthesized under microwave irradiation efficiently at presence of KF/Al2O3 in 83%–96% yields without any solvent implies that diaryl amine or ether moiety may be helpful in finding a fungicide against Magnaporthe oryzae. Expand
Divergent Method to trans-5-Hydroxy-6-alkynyl/alkenyl-2-piperidinones: Syntheses of (-)-Epiquinamide and (+)-Swainsonine.
An efficient diastereoselective approach to access trans-5-hydroxy-6-alkynyl/alkenyl-2-piperidinones has been developed through nucleophilic addition of α-chiral aldimines using alkynyl/alkenylExpand
Flexible approach for the asymmetric synthesis of (−)-hyacinthacine A1 and its 7a-epimer
Abstract The diastereoselective nucleophilic addition of organic boronic ester to 3-hydroxy-2-substituted N -acyliminium ions 9 led to the formation of 2,5- cis -pyrrolidine 10 , from which aExpand
Asymmetric Rh(II)/Pd(0) Relay Catalysis: Synthesis of α-Quaternary Chiral β-Lactams through Enantioselective C–H Insertion/Diastereoselective Allylation of Diazoamides
A straightforward route toward construction of α-quaternary chiral β-lactam moiety via Rh(II)/Pd(0)-catalyzed stereoselective relay catalytic reaction is reported. This asymmetric dual relayExpand
