Efficient syntheses of streptocarpone and (±)-a-dunnione
An efficient divergent synthesis of both streptocarpone and racemic α-dunnione from lawsone are described. A one-pot, formal [3+2] cyclization to form a furanonaphthoquinone directly provided a common intermediate.
Synthesis of Iodinated Naphthoquinones Using Morpholine-Iodine Complex
(Synthetic Communications Vol. 34, No. 18, pp. 3389–3397, 2004, 2004)
The efficient synthesis of 2‐hydroxy‐3‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (3), 2‐amino‐3‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (4), and 2‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (5) have been developed using the parent naphthoquinone in combination with the ...
Light Reflection by Cuticles of Chrysina Jewel Scarabs: Optical Measurements, Morphology Characterization, and Theoretical Modeling
Cuticles of some Chrysina scarabs are characterized by flat, graded, and twisted structures of nanosized chitin fibrils. As inferred from SEM images, each species has its own spatial period or pitch P which is dependent ...
Crystal structures and biological activity of 1,1,4-triphenyl-substituted 1,3-enyne compounds
1,3-Enyne structural motifs are versatile building blocks in organic synthesis and occur widely in various natural products with many of them being highly active as cytotoxic macrolides and antitumour antibiotics. This ...
Co-adsorbing effect of bile acids containing bulky amide groups at 3β-position on the photovoltaic performance in dye-sensitized solar cells
Co-adsorbing molecules attain certain control in the surrounding of the dyes leading to enhanced efficiencies mainly by affecting the recombination of the photogenerated electrons and aggregation of dyes. Bile acids ...
Bis(μ2-benzoato-κ2O,O′)bis(benzoato-κO)bis(ethanol-κO)bis(μ3-hydroxido)hexakis(μ-pyrazolato-κ2N,N′)hexacopper(II) ethanol disolvate
Trinuclear copper–pyrazolate entities are present in various Cu-based enzymes and nanojar supramolecular arrangements. The reaction of copper(II) chloride with pyrazole (pzH) and sodium benzoate (benzNa) assisted by ...
The structure of the title compound, C24H26S2, an example of a pincer ligand with an SCS-chelation motif, illustrates the steric effects of the methyl groups in the thiophenyl rings at the 2- and 6-positions, forcing a ...
The title compound, C9H7NO2, was prepared by alkynylation of 4-iodonitrobenzene with 1,3-dilithiopropyne in the presence of 1 equivalent of CuI and catalytic amounts of Pd(PPh3)2Cl2. The complete molecule is generated ...
Synthesis and characterization of new mixed-valent Mn(II)/Mn(III) and mixed metal Ni/Mn complexes
Microwave assisted synthesis and bench-top reactions are compared for Mn and Mn/Ni reaction systems with substituted salicylic acid (2-hydroxy-6-isopropyl-3-methylbenzoic-acid (SALOH2). When Mn salts are used, the microwave ...
Bile salts and derivatives: Rigid unconventional amphiphiles as dispersants, carriers and superstructure building blocks
Steroidal surfactants like bile salts have a rigid amphiphilic structure significantly different from the typical head–tail one. As a result, these molecules show peculiar features in their self-assembly behavior and ...
