The development of transition metal-catalysed cross-coupling reactions has greatly influenced the manner in which the synthesis of complex organic molecules is approached. A wide variety of methods are now available for the formation of C(sp(2))-C(sp(2)) bonds, and more recent work...

As novel therapeutic agents relevant to colon cancer therapy are explored continuously, we tested 4 R2edda-type ligand precursors O,O'-dialkyl esters of (S,S)-ethylenediamine-N,N'-di-2-(4-methyl)pentanoic acid (L1.2HCl-L4.2HCl) and corresponding palladium(II) and platinum(II) complexes against the human colon cancer cell lines CaCo-2, SW480 and...

A one-pot two-step synthesis of versatile indenones has been developed. This palladium(II)-catalyzed transformation involves generation and condensation of ortho-functionalized 1,2-benzils from 2-(2-arylethynylphenyl)acetonitriles using Ph2SO as the oxidant. The resulting 3-cyanoindenones can be converted to various valuable molecules.

Tetrahydrofurans and pyrrolidines are among the most important heterocycles found in bioactive compounds. Cyclization-functionalization domino reactions of alcohols or amines onto olefins constitute one of the most efficient methods to access them. In this context, oxy- and aminoalkynylation are especially...

A novel Pd/Cu catalyzed domino reaction for the synthesis of functionalized pyrrolo[1,2-b]pyridazines from readily accessible (hetero)aryl propargyl alcohols and 1-amino-2-bromopyrroles was developed. This cascade process involves a Sonogashira cross-coupling reaction, an isomerization and an intramolecular condensation.
