Abstract

Efficient methods for the formation of chiral heterocycles are considerably important in the synthesis of naturally-occurring compounds and pharmaceutical products. This review highlights the formation of chiral heterocycles through dearomative bond-formations as the key reactions, wherein the phenol or aniline derivatives serve as the nucleophiles. Transition-metal-catalyzed intramolecular coupling reactions in the presence of chiral ligands afford the enantioenriched multicyclic compounds bearing heterocycles. Chiral bifunctional organocatalysts induce the formation of dearomative coupling products, which could be converted to heterocycles through further transformations.

Abstract

In this study, we report a simple coumarin-based probe CISD for the detection of SO2 derivatives. In the case of the probe CISD, HSO3 can induce an obvious fluorescence-enhanced response with high selectivity, fast response (within 10 sec) as well as low limit of detection (262 nM). HR-MS experiment revealed the sensing mechanism concerning the nucleophilic addition reaction. Furthermore, the probe CISD has been successfully applied for imaging exogenous HSO3 in living HeLa cells.

Abstract

(Cyanomethylene)tributylphosphorane (CMBP) can promote the Mitsunobu reaction of 1,3- and 1,5-diols with N-nonsubstituted sulfonamides, such as tosylamide (TsNH2) and 3,3-dimethoxypropylsulfonamide (DimpsNH2), to prepare azetidine and piperidine ring systems directly. Utilizing this methodology, lupinine, a biologically active piperidine alkaloid, was synthesized.

Abstract

An efficient and simple method for the synthesis of (guaiazulen-1-yl)-1H-pyrroles was described. The construction of this new heteroarylazulene system was achieved by a the Paal-Knorr reaction of 3-acetyl-4-(guaiazulen-1-yl)hexane- 2,5-dione (4), easily preparation by a three-component condensation of guaiazulene (1), methylglyoxal (2) and acetylacetone (3), with primary amines (5).

Abstract

We report the preparation of some new C2-symmetrical multivalent hybrid-type molecules having a methylene linker group and 1,3,5-triazine (TAZ) recognition moieties in the molecule and we also report the results of biological evaluation of their anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 (anti-HSV-1) activity and cytotoxic activity against Vero cells. All mid-size C2-symmetrical multivalent hybrid-type molecules (3a-2, 3a-4, 3b-2, 3b-3, 3b-4) showed considerably high levels of anti-HSV-1 activity (EC50 = 7.6 ~ 95.6 μM) with low levels of cytotoxicity (CC50 > 200 μM) against Vero cells. Among the tested compounds, the hybrid-type C2-symmetrical multivalent molecule (3a-4) seems to be an interesting new lead in the search for new hybrid-type multivalent mid-size antiviral compounds.
