    Lucky number 13! The enantioselective total synthesis of GKK1032A2 has been achieved. The key step is a direct construction of the highly strained 13-membered macrocycle of GKK1032A2 by an intramolecular nucleophilic aromatic substitution (SNAr) reaction. This is a successful example of construction of a macrocycle with an aryl ether linkage utilizing an intramolecular SNAr reaction of an (η6-arene)chromium complex.

    Coordinated movements: Synthetic zinc chlorophyll derivative Zn-1 possessing a dimethylamino group at the C31 position dimerized in CH2Cl2 by one-by-one coordination to give J-type opened-to-closed dimers. These dimers were partially π-overlapped along the y-axis with a red-shifted Qy band, depending on concentration and temperature.

  5. NHC-Mediated Synthesis of Pyrrolo[2,1-a]isoquinolines and Their Photophysical Investigations

    A path ahead without metal! An NHC-mediated synthesis of pyrrolo[2,1-a]isoquinoline and indolizine derivatives with potential biological activity is reported (NHC=N-heterocyclic carbene). The preliminary photophysical studies of these compounds reveal that they have potential application in the sensing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
