Propargylic and activated allylic amines are known to inactivate the quinone-dependent plasma amine oxidases, possibly through active-site modification by the alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehyde turnover products. Although homopropargylamine (1-amino-3-butyne, 1) is a nonobvious candidate as a mechanism-based inhibitor, 1 was found to

A direct method for quantifying solid-phase aldehydes has been developed, using a new reagent, 4-(9-fluorenylmethyloxycarbonyl)phenylhydrazine (FmPH). The FmPH reagent was synthesized in three steps (24% overall yield) from commercially available p-hydrazinobenzoic acid. Resin-bound aldehydes reacted quantitatively with FmPH, in the

Perchloric acid adsorbed on silica-gel (HClO4-SiO2) was found to be a new, highly efficient, inexpensive and reusable catalyst for chemoselective N-tert-butoxycarbonylation of amines at room temperature and under solvent-free conditions.
