How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Olivetol, methyl olivetolate and a series of orthogonally protected methyl ether derivatives were synthesized from commonly available precursors using an atom-economical, catalytic oxidative aromatization process.
The discovery of a complex-induced proximity effect and scope of regioselective ylide formation on acetal- and ketal-functionalized trialkylphosphine-derived phosphonium salts is explored as a route to homologated unsaturated carbonyl derivatives.
The synthesis of Mosquito Oviposition Pheromones (MOP) (5R,6S)-5-acetoxy-6-hexadecanolide and its unnatural (5R,6R)-diastereomer in 68% and 54% overall yield by a route involving an organocatalyzed epoxidation of naturally occurring cis-5-hexadecenoic acid and diastereodivergent esterification is reported. The investigation of a dynamic kinetic asy...
The unnatural threo-6-acetoxy-5-hexadecanolide and the natural mosquito oviposition pheromone erythro-6-acetoxy-5-hexadecanolide were synthesized in a diastereodivergent fashion in 44 % and 33 % overall yield respectively from 5-bromovaleric acid and undecanal. The synthesis proceeds through a rare but naturally occurring fatty acid intermediate an...
A Lewis acid complex between benzaldehyde and the silver catalyst was detected by (31)P NMR and shown to be the direct precursor to allylation within the Sakurai-Hosomi-Yamamoto reaction. Structural and thermochemical hybrid-DFT calculations indicated that benzaldehyde predominantly formed an η(1)-σ-complex with the catalyst, however two other comp...
