Kenji Sugimoto, Hiroaki Fujiwara, Akihiro Takada, Dong-Gil Kim, Hirofumi Ueda, and Hidetoshi Tokuyama*

*Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tohoku University, 6-3 Aoba, Aramaki, Aoba-ku, Sendai, 980-8578, Japan


Development of a concise construction of the pentacyclic core skeleton of isoschizogamine was described. Tetracyclic A,B,D,F-rings structure was assembled by intramolecular aza-Diels–Alder reaction via an ortho-iminoquinone methide intermediate. The C-ring was formed by oxidation of the benzylic position with a combination of Cr(CO)6 and t-BuO2H, followed by the introduction of an aminoethyl side chain, C–H oxidation of the lactam ring with CrO3 and n-Bu4NI, and final cyclization to construct the cyclic aminal moiety.

3-Substituted 2-amino-1-cyanoazulene derivatives were prepared by the reaction of 2H-cyclohepta[b]furan-2-ones with malononitrile in the presence of triethylamine as a base. The great influence of the substituent at their 3-position on the reactivity to form the 2-aminoazulene derivatives was revealed. The intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) characters of 2-amino-1-cyano-3-vinylazulenes were investigated by UV/Vis spectroscopy and theoretical calculations. The structure of compounds 13b and 14b was clarified by single crystal X-ray analysis.

Notable Difference between Tetrabutylammonium Fluoride and Organic Superbases as Triggers for the Chemiluminescent Decomposition of Bicyclic Dioxetanes Bearing a 4-(N-Phenylbenzimidazol-2-yl)-3-hydroxyphenyl Moiety

Chemiluminescent decomposition of bicyclic dioxetanes 3a−3c bearing a 4-(N-phenylbenzimidazol-2-yl)-3-hydroxyphenyl moiety was effectively induced by organic superbases, BTPP [(tert-butylimino)tris-(pyrrolidino)phosphorene], TBD (1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4.4.0]dec-5-ene), MTBD(7-methyl-1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4.4.0]dec-5-ene), DBU (1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene), and TMG (tetramethylguanidine), as well as TBAF in acetonitrile. Dioxetane 3c bearing a 3,5-dihydroxyphenyl moiety showed diverse chemiluminescence profiles depending on the base used. BTPP caused chemiluminescent decomposition due to the di-oxido anion of dioxetane, while DBU and TMG induced chemiluminescence from the mono-oxido anion of dioxetane. On the other hand, TBAF caused effective chemiluminescence due to the mono-oxido anion, though it acted as a stronger base than BTPP with regard to the rate of decomposition of 3c.

Attempts of direct bromination of 1,3-dimethylimidazolium salts with bromine were futile. A tribromide or a carbene–lithium–THF adduct were received instead. The quaternary 2-bromo compound was obtained by methylation of 2‑bromo‑1‑methylimidazole and subsequent ion metathesis, which was converted to the corresponding 2-cyano and 2-azido derivatives. Typical reactions of the latter include a dipolar cycloaddition and the Staudinger reaction. Crystal structures of eight compounds have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.

Asymmetric Synthesis of β-Lactams by Intramolecular Conjugate Addition of Serine and Cysteine Derivatives via Memory of Chirality

Ryuichi Hyakutake, Tomoyuki Yoshimura, Yoshihiro Ueda, Kazuhiro Hayashi, Takumi Furuta, and Takeo Kawabata*

*Institute for Chemical Research, Kyoto University, Gokasho, Uji, Kyoto, 611-0011, Japan


The 4-exo-trig cyclization of axially chiral enolates generated from L-serine and L-cysteine dervatives proceeded predominately over β-elimination to give chiral β-lactams with contiguous tri- and tetrasubstituted carbon centers in up to 96% ee. The key to smooth production of β-lactams is the use of Cs2CO3 and CF3CH2OH as a base and a proton source, respectively. A strongly electron-withdrawing Michael acceptor in the substrates was also critical for high enantioselectivity of the β-lactam formation.

Design and Synthesis of a DNA-Like Structure Composed of Alkynyl C-Nucleotide with 2-Aminopyrimidin-4-one as a Nucleobase

Fumihiro Kurosaki, Junya Chiba,* and Masahiko Inouye*

*Graduate School of Medicines and Pharmaceutical Sciences for Research, Toyama University, 2630 Sugitani, Toyama, Toyama 930-0194, Japan


A heterocyclic compound, 2-aminopyrimidin-4-one, was found to be a new candidate of a non-natural nucleobase that forms a novel base pair by self-dimerization. 2-Aminopyrimidin-4-one was connected to a deoxyribose through an acetylene linkage. The non-natural nucleoside was derivatized to its phosphoramidite that could be subjected to a conventional solid-phase DNA synthesis. The solid-phase auto-synthesis successfully afforded a non-natural DNA-like oligomer bearing 2-aminopyrimidin-4-one as a nucleobase. The synthetic oligomer exhibited reversible formation of a higher-order structure that would be a duplex like natural DNA. The present study means creation of a novel artificial DNA-like system with unordinary odd numbers of genetic alphabets.

*Department of Pharmaceutical Science, Keio University, 1-5-30, Shibakoen, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-8512, Japan


A new approach to oroxylin A, a monomethylated trihydroxyflavone, is described. The starting material was baicalin, a representative naturally abundant flavonoid glucuronide. First, conditions for the cleavage of the glycosidic bond were established, using a mixture of water and conc. sulfuric acid (5:2) at 121 °C for 40 min. The hydrolysis was performed in a high-pressure steam sterilizer so that the temperature and reaction time were precisely controlled. Subsequent acetylation of the crude material furnished baicalein 6,7-diacetate on a preparative scale and in a reproducible manner. Next, the C-7 position was protected site-selectively with a methoxymethyl (MOM) group, taking advantage of an unexpected sequential migration of the two acetyl groups among the C-5, C-6, and C-7 positions under basic conditions. The removal of the two remaining acetyl groups followed by site-selective methylation of the C-6 position furnished 5-hydroxy-6-methoxy-7-methoxymethoxyflavone (oroxylin A C-7 MOM ether). Finally, by the deprotection of the MOM ether, oroxylin A was obtained in 6 total steps and 62% overall yield from baicalin.

Iodoanilines bearing a diene side-chain at the 3-position were converted to tricyclic fused indole derivatives under palladium catalysis. This cascade reaction proceeds through an intramolecular Heck insertion of the diene, followed by an allylic amination reaction sequence. Experimental and computational studies indicated that 3--allyl palladium complex-mediated substitution was operative for the latter cyclization.

Aryliodonium(III) salts, one of the useful and important classes of hypervalent iodine compounds, have a wide range of applicability, i.e., photoacid generator, active bactericides, and coupling agents for reacting a wide range of nucleophiles even under metal-free conditions. In this report, we present an approach to the design of stable uracil-iodonium(III) salts with various counterions. Uracil is an important substructure that exists in many biologically active compounds and the introduction of such a moiety in iodonium(III) salts would be of high utility in organic chemistry.

A novel synthetic method involving the direct application of a catalytic asymmetric reaction to peptides was developed. The conditions optimized for the model asymmetric reaction of a simple α-imino amide with an indole derivative were successfully applied to an asymmetric Friedel–Crafts reaction of α-imino peptide possessing a hydrophobic anchor to afford the indolyl glycine-containing peptide. This novel strategy will be of great value for the synthesis of the biologically important peptides bearing varieties of unnatural amino acids.

*Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Hachioji, Tokyo 192-0397, Japan


Macrocyclic oligothiophene 8-mer E,E-8T6A composed of eight thienylene, six ethynylene, and two vinylene units exhibits unique polymorphism. In the solid state, E,E-8T6A formed nanostructured polymorphs such as single crystals, fibers, long and short rods, and square tubes depending on the solvent used for crystallization. In contrast, E-8T7A with one vinylene unit and 8T8A without vinylene unit afforded single crystals, microcrystalline, and short rods in the solid state. Morphological difference between E,E-8T6A and E-8T7A/8T8A is due to the flexibility of the macroring of E,E-8T6A with two vinylene units, and the shape-persistent but rather flexible E,E-8T6A forms various polymorphs in the solid state.
