Trigger happy: chiral oxygen isotopomers of hydrobenzoin ([(18)O](R)-1 and [(18)O](S)-1) acted as chiral triggers to induce the enantioselective addition of iPr(2)Zn to pyrimidine-5-carbaldehyde. An extremely small chiral influence arising from the presence of the oxygen isotope ((18)O) is amplified through...

N-Heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalyzed transformations have emerged as powerful tactics for the construction of complex molecules. Since Stetter's report in 1975 of the total synthesis of cis-jasmon and dihydrojasmon by using carbene catalysis, the use of NHCs in total synthesis...

Eight new C-4-alkylated deoxybenzoins (1-8), three new diphenylethylenes (9-11), and five known diphenylethylenes were isolated from Arundina graminifolia. The structures of 1-11 were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including extensive 1D and 2D NMR techniques. Compounds 9-11 are the first naturally...
