Metal-Free Construction of Oxazole Ring by Formal [2+2+1] Cycloaddition

Saito et al. have reported a metal-free synthesis of oxazole rings by a formal [2+2+1] cycloaddition. The reaction is mediated by a catalytic in situ generated iodine (III) species to cyclize an alkyne and nitrile moieties affording di or trisubistuted oxazoles with good yield and complete regioselectivity. It was experimentally determined that the hypervalent iodine moiety is formed in situ by the treatment of a catalytic amount of iodobenzene with mCPBA and bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (= Tf2NH). This result represents the first example of a multicomponent reaction using a hypervalent iodine (III) compound.

Antitumor Phytochemical Inhibiting Cancer Stem Cells

The biologically active furanonaphthoquinone napabucasin was found originally in the stem bark of Tabebuia cassinoides.1) It has been reported that napabucasin exhibits the impressive cytotoxicity against KB cells as well as various cancer cell lines.1-4) Furthermore, napabucasin can kill cancer stem cells isolated from many types of cancer tissue through inhibition STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3)-driven gene transcription. Since napabucasin effectively suppresses cancer relapse and metastasis in mice, napabucasin is expected to contribute to the development of cancer therapeutics.5)
