Abstract

Electroreduction of diquat triflate gave a potent organic reductant, which promoted reductive dimerization of aryl bromides in the presence of palladium catalysts to give the corresponding biaryl compounds.

Abstract

The synthesis of (4S)-4-benzyl-3-(4,5-dimethoxy-2-methylbenzoyl)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-oxazolidine 6 was performed in 7 steps starting from veratraldehyde 7. A new oxidizing system TBHP-ebselen 12 was used for oxidation of 4,5-dimethoxy-2-methylbenzaldehyde 11 into carboxylic acid 13, being the crucial step of the synthesis. The latter was transformed first to chiral amide 14 using (S)-phenylalaninol and then cyclised to oxazolidine 6. The spatial structure and the absolute configuration of the latter one was confirmed by X-ray study.
