The present review considers all the literature data on methods developed for the synthesis of 1,3,2-diazaphosphinine systems starting from their appearance up to end 2018. The described main methods depended on the cyclization of 1,3-diamines, 1,2-aminoamide (β-aminoamide) and 1,2-aminonitrile (β-aminonitrile) compounds with phosphorus halides and sulfides.

*Department of Chemistry, Jinan University, Guangzhou City, 510632, China


Thermoactinoamide A, showing remarkable antibacterial properties, is a novel cyclic hexapeptide which was originally isolated from thermophilic bacterium. We disclosed here the first total synthesis of thermoactinoamide A and its analogue, anti-thermoactinoamide A, by the Fmoc solid-phase peptide synthesis and subsequent efficient macrolactamization. Thermoactinoamide A and its analogue can be obtained in 74% and 46% overall yield respectively without any isomerization under the developed methodology.

Uncariagambiriines B and C, Alkaloid-Catechin Hybrids from Uncaria gambir Leaves

Gambiers, aqueous extracts from the leaves and twigs of Uncaria gambir, are used medicinally in Asian countries. Previously, we reported the isolation of uncariagambiriine (1) from U. gambir leaves, and its unique structure regarded as a catechin-alkaloid hybrid. Our continuing studies led to the isolation of two previously undescribed compounds named uncariagambiriines B (2) and C (3), in addition to the flavonoid glycosides, hyperoside and isoquercitrin. The structures of 2 and 3, isomeric to 1, were elucidated based on their spectral data.

Synthesis and Optical Properties of Polyarylimidazole Derivatives Containing Naphthyl Groups In the 4,5-Positions for Coated and Non-Doped OLED Materials

*Department of Nanoscience, Faculty of Engineering, Sojo University, 4-22-1, Ikeda, Kumamoto-shi, 860-0082, Japan


In this study, we describe the development of an imidazole emitting material, characterized by low concentration quenching via a bulky substituent group, for coated and non-doped OLEDs. Specifically, we synthesized novel 1,2,4,5-tetraarylimidazoles that have naphthyl groups replacing the bulky aryl groups at the 4,5-positions and investigated their optical, concentration quenching, thermal, and coating properties. We observe that the emitting materials had low concentration quenching properties and fluorescence occurred even in the film coating state.

Synthesis of Steroidal [1,2,4]Triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines and Their Antiproliferative Activities

A facile strategy for the synthesis of steroidal [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines 5a-g and 6a-g has been accomplished via a one-pot reaction of steroidal ketones, aromatic aldehydes and 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide in refluxing tert-butanol. All the synthesized heterosteroids were evaluated for in vitro antiproliferative activity against human cancer cells by sulforhodamine B (SRB) assays. The preliminary results showed that compounds 6a and 6e possessed potent antiproliferative activities.

Thymidine, 2-Thiothymidine, and 2-Selenothymidine: Comparison of Mismatch Discriminations

Takaki Habuchi, Takao Yamaguchi, and Satoshi Obika*

*Pharmaceutical Science, Osaka University, 1-6 Yamadaoka, Suita, Osaka 560-0871, Japan


Oligonucleotides modified using 2-thiothymidine (S2T) or 2-selenothymidine (Se2T), which are thymidine analogs bearing either sulfur or selenium atoms, respectively, have been independently shown to suppress the formation of mismatched wobble base pairs with guanine when forming a duplex with single stranded DNA. However, limited data comparing the base discriminations of S2T- and Se2T-modified oligonucleotides, especially toward single stranded RNA, are available. Here, we report a comprehensive data set of the base discriminations of S2T- and Se2T-modified oligonucleotides toward both single stranded DNA and RNA. Our results demonstrate that S2T- and Se2T-modified oligonucleotides have similar base discrimination abilities. An important feature observed in both the S2T- and Se2T-modified oligonucleotides is their extremely high base discrimination toward single stranded RNA. Thus, S2T and Se2T modifications may be useful for therapeutic oligonucleotides targeting single stranded RNAs.

The application of gallium triflate [Ga(OTf)3] for the synthesis of quinolines via the Friedländer reaction is described. This mild and straightforward method employed only 1 mol% of Ga(OTf)3 to deliver the quinoline products in excellent yields, demonstrating the high catalytic activity of this rare earth metal triflate.

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Fukuoka University, 8-19-1 Nanakuma, Jonan-ku, Fukuoka 814-0180, Japan


A simple, efficient, and three-component procedure has been developed for the synthesis of a series of spiropyrazol-3-one derivatives containing dihydroquinazoline moiety by the reaction of 1H-pyrazole-4,5-diones, 2-aminobenzophenones, and ammonium acetate in moderate to good yields. This method provides several advantages such as operational simplicity, shorter reaction time, and higher yields. All the synthesized compounds were characterized by spectroscopic analysis.
