A Novel Synthesis of Phenyleneethynylenes by Using Ph2P(O)-protected Ethynes

Orita and Otera et al. have developed a new terminal alkyne protecting group, Ph2P(O).1,2) This protecting group can be introduced readily to terminal alkynes by CuI catalyzed phosphination using chlorodiphenylphosphine and the subsequent oxidation with H2O2. The high polarity of the phosphoryl group enables easy separation of the desired products from the lower polar hydrocarbon byproducts. While Ph2P(O)-protected ethynes remain under Sonogashira coupling conditions without a deprotection, when they are treated with t-BuOK, the facile deprotection proceeds to provide the corresponding deprotected ethynes. The resulting ethynes can be transformed to more expanded arylethynes by the Sonogashira coupling with aryl halides. This synthetic approach can be applied to a one-pot synthesis of phenyleneethynylenes by the deprotection followed by coupling reactions such as the Sonogashira, Migita–Kosugi–Stille and intramolecular Eglinton couplings.2)


Product Highlight

A Stable Olefin Metathesis Catalyst

Nitro-Grela is one of Hoveyda-type metathesis catalysts and is effectively used for trans-selective olefin metathesis reactions. This complex has an isopropoxy group on a phenylvinylidene moiety offering coordination to a ruthenium metal while bearing an electron-withdrawing nitro group. From these two structural relations, the complex shows the compatible properties of stabilization of the Ru-O coordination bond and the nitro group-induced increase of a dissociation ability, which resultantly shows a larger substrate scope while maintaining the activity of typical ruthenium vinylidene complexes.1) By using the catalyst, metathesis reactions with a cyano or sulfonyl group-substituted alkenes,2) and nitro alkenes bearing an active methylene moiety3) can be successfully performed. In addition, it shows high applicabilities to macrocycle constructions in natural compound syntheses.4)

Anti-Glyco Antibodies

Anti-glyco antibodies can recognize glycolipids or glycoproteins. TCI mainly produces antibodies against glycolipids; ganglio series, globo series, lacto series, and neo-lacto series. These antibodies can be used for immunohistochemistry, cell-staining, inhibition assay for cell adhesion, flow cytometry, ELISA, TLC-immunostaining and other methods. TCI antibodies are very useful tools for analyzing the expression of sugar chains and their functions. Please click the following link for more details.
