Templated DNA ligation with thiol chemistry

28 October, 2014 - 10:17

Org. Biomol. Chem., 2014, 12,8823-8827
DOI: 10.1039/C4OB01552E, CommunicationDadong Li, Xiaojian Wang, Fubo Shi, Ruojie Sha, Nadrian C. Seeman, James W. Canary
Templated DNA ligation reactions are useful in a variety of contexts and have drawn much attention recently. Herein we describe two different DNA-templated ligation systems based on thiols and thiol-mediated chemistry. One system follows the principle of native chemical ligation reaction, and the other utilizes a thiol-disulfide exchange reaction.

Catalytic asymmetric desymmetrization approaches to enantioenriched cyclopentanes

28 October, 2014 - 10:17

Org. Biomol. Chem., 2014, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C4OB01649A, PerspectiveMadhu Sudan Manna, Santanu Mukherjee
Asymmetric desymmetrization represents an excellent strategy for obtaining highly functionalized chiral building blocks. However, the application of this strategy for the synthesis of cyclopentane derivatives remained limited, when compared to cyclohexanes. Here, we give an overview of asymmetric desymmetrization reactions leading to enantioenriched cyclopentanes.
