“Hydroxy/Amine-Directed Ortho-Alkylation and Its Application

in Total Synthesis of Panduratin D”



Hydroxyl/amine-directed ortho-nucleophilic acyl alkylations of N,N-diethylarylamides have been developed using a simple reagent combination of LDA and chlorosilane. The

transformations involve: 1) a complex-induced proximity effect (CIPE) in the deprotonation step, 2) an intramolecular Peterson-type reaction of the resulting α-silyl carbanion with the amide group, and 3) fission of the final β-oxygenated/nitrogenated silyl intermediate. The study of the mechanism, as well as the application of the protocol to an anionic Hellwinkel-Snieckus-Fries rearrangement, a series of highly efficient functional group transformations, and a total synthesis of Panduratin D, a cytotoxic natural product against pancreatic cancer cells, are reported.

“Chiral Tetrahydrothiophene Ligands in Asymmetric Catalysis”



Chiral sulfur ligands are becoming a versatile tool in organic chemistry due to the

blossomed development achieved in the past years. This presentation describes an

expeditious and efficient preparation of enantiopure (thiolan-2-yl)diarylmethanols and

the applications of their derivatives to catalytic and asymmetric Corey-Chaykovsky

epoxidation,1 the imino Corey-Chaykovsky aziridination,2,3 as well as the first oxathiaborenium catalyzed asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction.4,5
