Pelage extracts of the banteng (Bos javanicus), the domestic cattle (B. taurus), the gaur (B. frontalis), and the yak (B. grunniens) were investigated by FABMS and NMR. An 18-carbon hydroxyfuranoid acid, 1 (10-hydroxy-6,9-oxidooctadecanoic acid), first reported from the wool of the domestic sheep (Ovis aries) was confirmed in B. frontalis; we suspend judgment on the occurrence of this compound in the other species we examined. The stereochemistry of 1, determined by Mosher NMR and CD tweezer… Expand
Synthesis of (+)-Bovidic Acid
(+)-Bovidic acid is an 18-carbon hydroxyfuranoid acid isolated from the pelage of the gaur (Bos frontalis) and displays potential as an insect repellant. Both a formal and total synthesis ofExpand
Cervidins A-D: Novel Glycine Conjugated Fatty Acids from the Tarsal Gland of Male Whitetail Deer, Odocoileus virginianus.
Using NMR spectroscopy and high-pressure liquid chromatography linked to high resolution mass spectrometry, a homologous series of four male-specific compounds are identified which clearly demonstrate the diversity of potential semiochemicals contained in the mammalian integument. Expand

The stereoselective total synthesis of (+)-18-(6S,9R,10R)-bovidic acid
Abstract An expedient stereoselective total synthesis of 18-carbon (+)-(6 S ,9 R ,10 R )-bovidic acid, isolated from the pelage and skin of a gaur B. frontalis is described using l -proline catalysedExpand
Absolute Configuration Assignment to Chiral Natural Products by Biphenyl Chiroptical Probes: The Case of the Phytotoxins Colletochlorin A and Agropyrenol
With the biphenyl method the configurational assignment can be obtained simply by the sign of a diagnostic Cotton effect at 250 nm in the ECD spectrum, thus allowing application without the need of advanced knowledge of chiroptical spectroscopy and computational protocols. Expand
Chiral recognition of cyclic alpha-hydroxyketones by CD-sensitive zinc tetraphenylporphyrin tweezer.
The absolute configurations of the alpha-stereogenic center is determined by comparison of the sign of the observed CD exciton couplet of the complex with that of the preferred porphyrin twist predicted by the Merck Molecular Force Field (MMFFs) method. Expand
Chiral recognition of cyclic α-hydroxyketones by CD-sensitive zinc tetraphenylporphyrin tweezer†
A combined chemical/chiroptical microscale protocol for the determination of absolute configurations of cyclic α-hydroxyketones is described. The hydroxyl group in cyclic α-hydroxyketones isExpand
