  1. Oxygen-Rich 1,2,4-Triazolo[3,4-d]-1,2,4-triazolo[3,4-f]furazano[3,4-b]pyrazines as Energetic Materials

    Prof. Aleksei B. Sheremetev, Vecheslav L. Korolev, Aleksandr A. Potemkin, Natali S. Aleksandrova, Nadezhda V. Palysaeva, Trung H. Hoang, Valery P. Sinditskii and Kyrill Yu. Suponitsky

    Magical powers: Tetrazole chemistry was employed in the development of an effective synthesis for a polynitromethyl-substituted tetracyclic ring system. This one-pot protocol was carried out at low temperature in an ionic liquid over a short reaction time to afford the nitrogen-rich heterocyclic products in excellent yields.

  2. Palladium(II)-Catalyzed C3-Selective Friedel–Crafts Reaction of Indoles with Aziridines

    C3 is the magic number: A simple PdII catalyst that is activated by a 1,4-benzoquinone (BQ) additive has been found to be effective for the ring-opening of arylaziridines, thereby providing a range of functionalized tryptamine derivatives. Importantly, no racemization was observed when a chiral aziridine starting material was used, which opens up a route to enantioenriched β-branched tryptamine derivatives.

  3. Enantioselective Hydrogenation of Ketones Catalyzed by Chiral Cobalt Complexes Containing PNNP Ligand

    Dong Zhang, En-Ze Zhu, Zhi-Wei Lin, Zan-Bin Wei, Dr. Yan-Yun Li and Prof. Jing-Xing Gao

    Cobalt-catalyzed enantioselective hydrogenation of ketones: the cobalt-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of various ketones has been investigated using H2 as a hydrogen source, affording the corresponding chiral alcohols with up to 99 % yield and 95 % ee.

  4. Cs2CO3-Promoted Michael Addition-[2,3]-Sigmatropic Rearrangement Domino Reaction: Facile Synthesis of a 3-Substituted Indoles Bearing a Homoallyl Sulfide Moiety

    Michael addition-[2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement domino reaction: A Cs2CO3-promoted Michael addition-[2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement domino reaction between arenesulfonylindoles and sulfur ylides has been developed. This reaction is a facile method for the synthesis of 3-substituted indoles bearing a homoallyl sulfide moiety.

  5. Stereoselective Alkylation of Imines and its Application towards the Synthesis of β-Lactams

    Sandeep Goyal, Anamika Thakur, Dr. Ratnesh Sharma, Mukesh Gangar, Bhautikkumar Patel and Dr. Vipin A. Nair

    Beta testing: (S)-4-Isopropyl-1-[(R)-1-phenylethyl]imidazolidin-2-one-mediated asymmetric Mannich-type reactions are described. The adducts were conveniently transformed to β-lactams, as exemplified by the synthesis of the drug ezetimibe.
