Experiments were conducted to examine the ability of the selective 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)1A agonist 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) to induce a conditioned place preference following peripheral injection, and direct microinjection into the dorsal or median raphe nuclei. An unbiased place preference paradigm was used in which control(More)
A novel cascade organocatalysis that allows efficient and rapid access to diverse and structurally complex oxazolidin-2-ones from simple starting materials and catalysts has been developed. A possible mechanism of this reaction has been proposed based on D- and 13C-labeling experiments.
An enantioselective [4 + 1] annulation/rearrangement cascade of stable sulfur ylides and nitroolefins has been developed through an efficient axial-to-central chirality transfer with the use of a chiral BINOL-derived sulfide as a reliable stereocontroller. It can provide pharmaceutically and synthetically important oxazolidinones in high stereoselectivities(More)
1H-1,2,4-Triazole reacted with 2-butenal in the presence of diaryl prolinol silyl ether 3 and benzonic acid to give 3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)butanal 4, which was subsequently reduced and then treated with various acyl chloride to generate enantioriched 3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)butyl benzoates 6. Some of triazoles 6 exhibited strong binding interactions with(More)
