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.

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

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.

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.
