Carbonic acid (H2CO3), an essential molecule of life (e.g., as bicarbonate buffer), has been well characterized in solution and in the solid state, but for a long time, it has eluded its spectral characterization in the gas phase owing to...

Nepsilon 29, Nepsilon 59-Bis(methylsulfonylethoxycarbonyl)proinsulin was prepared from native beef proinsulin for its possible use in the semisynthesis of preproinsulin. The modification was made possible by first protecting the alpha-amino group of proinsulin either with the tert-butoxycarbonyl group, after reaction with...

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.

Total syntheses of two structures purported as (+)-heliananes were completed in six pots. Spectral comparisons, between the synthetic and natural compounds, revealed a misassignment of the eight-membered ring in the heliananes. The key step in the syntheses of the proposed...

We report a fundamentally unique approach to the catalytic kinetic resolution of amine derivatives based on formamide and thioformamide substrates. Readily accessible histidine-containing peptides mediate the kinetic resolutions with as little as 5 mol % catalyst. Selectivity factors (k(rel)) as...
