Diverse synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of various isoquinolinic alkaloids

27.09.2005


This research work developed a number of synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of various isoquinolinic alkaloids. They all have in common the use of b-aminoalcohols as the source of chirality operating as auxiliaries or as chiral blocks.



Thus, the employment of (S,S)-(+)-pseudoephedrine as chiral auxiliary enables access to enriched enantiomeric arylglycines, precursors of 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines, by means of a synthetic methodology applicable to the stereocontrolled synthesis of such derivatives with a substitution in the 7,8 positions of the aromatic ring of the isoquinolinic nucleus. Also, the aminoalcohol, (S)-(+)- phenylglycinol, has proved to be an efficient chiral building block for access to 1,2-diarylethylamines which, by means of cyclation, lead to optically active 6,7-disubstituted 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines.

The convenient manipulation of the synthesised 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolinic derivatives enabled obtaining a series of chiral berbines, amongst others, (R)-tetrahydropalmatine, (R)-synactine and (S)-xylopinine with high enantiomeric excesses.


Finally, the total synthesis was undertaken of natural aporphinic alkaloid (S)-glaucine employing aminoalcohol (S)-(+)-phenylglycinol as a chiral precursor that helped in the obtention of (S)-laudanosine, on which a process of oxidative coupling was carried out.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
