Abstract

2-Bromo-7-(1,4,7,10-tetraoxa-13-azacyclopentadec-13-yl)tropone (1) was found to display unique absorption spectral changes in the presence of guest cations. The compositions of 1 with guest salts were 1:1 for Mg(SCN)2, Ca(SCN)2, and Ba(SCN)2, 1:2 for CdI2 and 1:1.5 for Zn(SCN)2, respectively. Azacrown ether (1) could be used as a carrier for transport of Hg2+ through a chloroform liquid membrane.

Abstract

Salsolinol and its N- and N,N-geranylated derivatives were tested for antimicrobial, cytotoxic, anti-oxidant, and anti-HIV activities, as well as inhibitory activity against Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation induced by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in Raji cells. N,N-Geranylation increased potency in three different assays, antimicrobial, cytotoxic, and EBV-EA, while N-geranylation increased potency to a lesser extent in these same assays. N,N-Geranylated salsolinol was significantly active in all assays, except anti-HIV, and may be useful as a lead compound for developing potential chemotherapeutic agents.

Synthesis of Piperazine Derivatives by Cp*Ir Complex-Catalyzed N-Alkylative Reactions of Ethanolamines

*Graduate School of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University, Kyoto 606-8501, Japan

Abstract

A new method for the synthesis of piperazine derivatives catalyzed by a Cp*Ir complex has been developed. Cp*Ir complex-catalyzed N-alkylative homocoupling reactions of N-benzylethanolamines give N,N’-dibenzylpiperazine derivatives. For example, the reaction of N-benzylethanolamine in the presence of [Cp*IrCl2]2 (2.5 mol%) and NaHCO3 (15 mol%) in toluene at 110 °C for 17 h gives N,N’-dibenzylpiperazine in 66% yield. Cp*Ir complex-catalyzed N-alkylative cross coupling reactions of Boc-protected diethanolamines with benzylamine also give N-benzyl-N’-Boc-piperazine derivatives in moderate to good yields.

*Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Science, Chiba University, 1-33 Yayoi-cho, Inage-ku, Chiba 263-8522, Japan

Abstract

Sixteen flavonoids including two new ones (1 and 2) were isolated from the leaves of Eupatorium odoratum (Compositae) through bioassay-guided isolation. The chemical structures of 1 and 2 were established on the basis of spectroscopic analysis. Compounds 2, 7, 9, and 14 led to more than 2-fold increase in death receptor 5 (DR5) promoter activity at 17.5 or 35 μM.

*Laboratory of Molecular Structure and Biological Function, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Science, Chiba University, 1-33 Yayoi-cho, Inage-ku, Chiba 263-8522, Japan

Abstract

A new crinine-type alkaloid, squamigine, and a norbelladine-type alkaloid were isolated from the bulbs of Lycoris squamigera (Amaryllidaceae), together with sixteen known alkaloids. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic analyses.

Anomeric Samarium(III) Intermediates of N-Acetylneuraminic Acid from Anomeric 2-Pyridylsulfides

*Laboratoire de Synthese de Biomolecules, Institut de Chimie Moleculaire et Materiaux associe au CNRS, Université de Paris-Sud 11, Batiment 430, F-91405 Orsay Cedex, France

Abstract

Treatment of the anomeric 2-thiopyridyl derivative of N-acetylneuraminic acid (sialic acid or Neu5Ac) with samarium diiodide in the presence of aldehydes or ketones provides the corresponding C-sialylated derivatives in excellent yields. The efficiency of the reductive samariation of the anomeric 2-pyridylsulfide moiety in the Neu5Ac series does not require any cosolvent or additive. This samarium Reformatsky-like reaction from anomeric 2-pyridylsulfide derivatives of Neu5Ac provides an efficient and highly stereoselective access to α-2,6-C-disaccharides.
