A general approach for the synthesis of 3,5-diarylcyclopentenones was developed. Key aspects of this approach are the intramolecular Friedel-Crafts-type cyclization of vinyl chlorides and subsequent Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. The requisite vinyl chloride-bearing arylacetic acid precursors are readily available by straightforward...

The mutagenic and genotoxic effects of ethylvinyl ketone were investigated. This alpha, beta-unsaturated carbonyl compound is widely distributed in the environment, in particular in food. Whereas ethylvinyl ketone shows only weak genotoxicity in the SOS Chromotest with Escherichia coli PQ37...

2-Methyl-2-cyclopentene-1-one was used as starting material in a novel route toward 2'-branchedcarbocyclic nucleosides. This methodology was efficiently adapted to the preparation of 4'-epicarbocycles. A series of this new class of molecules was synthesized as potential antiviral compounds.

The reaction of the alpha, beta-unsaturated ketones methyl vinyl ketone (MVK) and ethyl vinyl ketone (EVK) with nucleosides and 5'-mononucleotides was studied. The genotoxic activity of MVK and EVK in the SOS Chromotest was investigated. Three different types of adducts...
