Synthesis and biological evaluation of prodigiosene conjugates of porphyrin, estrone and 4-hydroxytamoxifen
(Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry, 2013)
To generate the first series of prodigiosene conjugates, the tripyrrolic skeleton was appended to estrone, tamoxifen and porphyrin frameworks by way of ester linkers and various hydrocarbon chain lengths. The ability of ...
An Improved Method for the Synthesis of F-BODIPYs from Dipyrrins and Bis(dipyrrin)s
(Organic Letters, 2012)
An improved methodology for the synthesis of F-BODIPYs from dipyrrins and bis(dipyrrin)s is reported. This strategy employs lithium salts of dipyrrins as intermediates that are then treated with only one equivalent of boron ...
Use of F-BODIPYs as a protection strategy for dipyrrins: optimization of BF2 removal.
(Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2012)
We recently reported the first general method for the deprotection of 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacenes (F-BODIPYs) involving a microwave-assisted procedure for the removal of the BF2 moiety, and liberation of ...
The Use of Tin (IV) Chloride to Selectively Cleave Benzyl Esters over Benzyl Ethers and Benzyl Amines
(Canadian Journal of Chemistry, 2014)
Benzyl esters are cleaved upon reaction with SnCl4, resulting in isolation of the corresponding carboxylic acid. Importantly, benzyl ethers, amines and amides do not undergo debenzylation under these conditions, nor do a ...
