A Mild Ethynylating Reagent

1-[(Triisopropylsilyl)ethynyl]-1,2-benziodoxol-3(1H)-one (=TIPS-EBX) is a mild ethynylating reagent and well used for site-selective ethynylations. For example, a palladium catalyzed ethynylation of indoles proceeds at C2-selectively, while complementary C3-selective ethynylation is accomplished by using gold chloride as a catalyst. Gold catalyst-promoted site selective ethynylations are applied to thiophenes and N,N-dialkyl anilines affording C2-ethynylated thiophenes and para- ethynylated anilines. A TIPS group on the alkynes can be easily removed under basic conditions and affords related terminal alkynes. Thus, TIPS-EBX is an efficient ethynylating reagent applicable for click chemistry and material sciences.

Product Highlight

The Sixth Nucleoside of the Genome, 5-hmdC

2'-Deoxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)cytidine (5-hmdC) and its base 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) were recently discovered as oxidation products of 2’-deoxy-5-methylcytidine (5-mdC) in mammalian DNA, particularly in stem cell DNA. 5-mdC, a C5-methylated form of 2'-deoxycytidine (dC), has been studied as an indicator of DNA methylation in epigenetics. On the other hand, the biological function of 5-hmdC is currently not clear, but it is assumed that in stem cells it might be an intermediate of an active de-methylation process. Detection of 5-hmdC in a genome has been investigated to elucidate its role.
