Facile synthesis of enantioenriched hydroxy esters via Brønsted acid catalyzed kinetic resolution 2014 1193 The synthesis of natural products is a growing area of research within the field of chemistry. Compounds are extracted from sources such as fungi, plants, algae, and other natural sources. The compounds that are biologically active often need to be s...
Efforts towards the formal synthesis of bakuchiol via small molecule manipulation 2014 780 Bakuchiol is a monoterpinoid compound found mainly in the seeds of Psoralea coryfolia Linn, which is indigenous to Southeast Asia. Since its discovery and isolation in 1967, it has been reported to contain a multitude of health benefits. It exhibits ...
Enantioselective cyclization of symmetric diesters 2016 549 Two important facets that are found in many biologically active compounds and complex natural products are chirality and heterocyclic motifs, in particular lactones and lactams. Biologically active compounds found in nature often need to be synthesiz...
Formation of bicycles and spirocycles via desymmetrization 2017 451 Biologically active naturally produced and synthetic compounds often feature chiral centers and heteroatoms. The inclusion of these heteroatoms in cyclic motifs such as lactones and lactams with specific stereochemistry is common. While naturally pro...
Investigation into the mechanism of catalysis for the kinetic resolution of a,a-Disubstituted y-Hydroxy Esters 2018 1 The synthesis of enantioenriched, biologically active compounds is a vital area of interest for synthetic chemists. The lactone motif is found in several biologically important molecules, and the development of kinetic resolutions capable of producin...
Asymmetric synthesis of enantioenriched spirocycles via a chiral Brønsted acid catalyzed desymmetrization 2019 55 Asymmetric methodologies are very important as they allow chemists to produce significant quantities of complex chiral molecules as enantiopure or enantioenriched compounds. The Petersen group has previously developed chiral Brønsted acid catalyzed d...
