A General Synthetic Route to Defined, Biologically Active Multivalent Arrays


09 Dec 2016

Good experimental, sub DIC for EDCI

The coupling reaction between a carboxylic acid and an alcohol to generate an ester needs a carbodiimide coupling agent. in the reference, the authors report the use of EDCI to prepare compound 1. I have used the same procedure in the synthesis of 1 though...

Oxorhenium-catalyzed deoxydehydration of glycols and epoxides


24 Dec 2016

Average reactions. Toxic solvents.

Summary:

Deoxydehydration of glycols and epoxides catalysed by oxorhenium complexes is described in this paper. Methyl trioxorhenium (MTO) was the choice as the catalyst for the reactions. The use of other catalytic conditions for such reactions are...

Synthesis of Thiazolinone, Aminopyrazole, Pyrazolopyrimidine, and Pyrazolotriazine Derivatives Starting from 1-Naphthyl-2-Cyanoacetamide


31 Jan 2017

Good yields, but greener solvents recommended

Summary:

This paper reports 1-Naphthyl-2-cyanoacetamide used as a precursor for the synthesis of different novel heterocyclic moieties such as 5-Aminopyrazole, thiazolinone, pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine, 4H-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-one and pyrazolo[3,4-d...

A density functional study of oxorhenium(V) complexes incorporating quinoline or isoquinoline carboxylic acids: structural, spectroscopic, and electronic properties


18 Feb 2017

Using Stuttgart basis set improves reproducibility

Summary:

This paper describes the density functional theoretical study on oxorhenium(V) complexes incorporating quinoline or isoquinoline carboxylic acids. The study is aimed at understanding causes for the difference in stabilities of particular isomers...

Kinetic study of the complex reaction between copper(II) and 2-(2′-hydroxy-3′-methoxyphenyl)benzothiazole


09 Mar 2017

Kinetic study works well. Ligand synthesis can be improved.

Summary:

This paper reports an interesting property of the O, N and S donor ligand 2-(2’-Hydroxy-3’-methoxyphenyl)benzothiazole which makes it switch chelating donor sites from O, S (at pH < 5.0) to O, N (above pH 5.0) while reacting with Cu(II) acetate...

Bioimaging Carbon Dots track and target liver cancer cells

Cancer dots can be used to generate bioimages of drug delivery systems in action. Their purpose is to function as a selective drug delivery system to target cancer cells, HepG2 cells, as well as trace and potentially kill the cancer cell. Fluorescent carbon...
