Objective: This project will develop a new, highly enantioselective, state-of-the-art synthetic route to the daphniyunnine family of alkaloids based on a novel dual organo / metal catalysed desymmetrization reaction of alkene-linked cyclohexanones as a key step, which will allow the rapid and efficient construction of the AB rings ready for subsequent advancement to the majority of the family members.
At FESPA 2005, the company introduced a host of new products, including its new T40 series of pad printing inks, which are free from aromatic compounds and cyclohexanones, and due to its fast drying process, they are suitable for pad printing machines with speeds of up to 4,000 pieces per minute.
Substituted cyclohexanones and bicyclic ketones were reduced with sodium borohydride, lithium aluminum hydride, baker's yeast, and polymer supported borohydride.
Our interest in enolizable ketones resulted in a recent paper reporting on the syntheses and enolization of 4-alkyl-2-(2-pyridyl) cyclohexanones (Sund et al.
Five 4-alkyl-2-(2-pyridyl)cyclohexanones were synthesized by the condensation of morpholine enamine of the appropriate cyclohexanone with pyridine-1-oxide in the presence of benzoyl chloride.
