OC tidbits #4

Büschleb et al. (ACIE)

A collection of OC tidbits selected by Hanessian and Overman groups. Featuring a dozen of natural products, each full of densely-packed stereocenters; 29 oldschoolishly lengthy synthetic schemes including three hundred intermediates that undergo all sorts of electrocyclic reactions and crazy cascades. Read in limited quantities to prevent overexcitement.

And, of course, I liked this guy (or girl?) at the frontispiece (the only thing one can get for free from Angewandte preview without subscription) in high-energy conformation overcoming some activation barrier.

Nicolaou et al (JACS)

KCN loves gold.

nicolaou-2

Picado et al. (JOC)

Turning failures into victories: if the reaction works, it’s just another row in a table. If it doesn’t, it can be a whole new paper!

joc-fail

Pan, Qin et al. (Org Lett)

A question without answer: how come this stereochemistry

… given this:

Patil et al. (JOC)

Simplicity is the new beauty (via orgchem.by).

oximes

Mishra and Biswas (JOC)

Another example of beautiful simplicity.

I did my PhD in medicinal chemistry/chemical biology of G protein-coupled receptors and then explored some chemical biology of non-coding RNA as a postdoc. Currently I'm working in a small biotech company in San-Francisco Bay area as a research chemist. I'm writing about science, which catches my attention in rss feed reader and some random thoughts or tutorials.
