Abstract:An efficient protocol for the direct transformation of chroman-4-ones to tricyclic fused pyridines with the skeleton of cassiarins, a family of alkaloids with antimalarial activity, was developed. Also, a general strategy for modular construction of polyheterocycles with diverse natural product-like skeletons was developed by using ketone-alkyne bifunctional substrates. These reactions involved a one-pot cascade oximation of ketones, rhodium-catalyzed C-H activation, and intermolecular/intramolecular alkyne an… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
