Thiopyran route to polypropionates : proline catalyzed aldol reactions of tetrahydro-4H-thiopyran-4-one
The thiopyran route to polypropionates is an attractive strategy that involves a stepwise iterative aldol homologation of tetrahydro-4H-thiopyran-4-one (I) with thiopyran aldehyde (II) followed by desulfurization to rapidly ...
Examination of Chemoselective N-Heterocyclic Carbene-Catalyzed Cross-Benzoin Reactions and Efforts Towards a Concise Total Synthesis of Sparteine
This thesis is broadly subdivided into two topics: the development and exploration of a methodology for catalyst-controlled chemoselective cross-benzoin reactions using N-heterocyclic carbenes, and efforts towards a concise ...
Enantioenriched amino ketones are convenient building blocks for a variety of synthetic transformations as well as important structural features in a wide array of natural products. N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalyzed ...
