Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent years, a number of new methods for synthesis of complex molecules, short and efficient routes for synthesis of important substance have been published. The speed of this development is now enormously increasing. This special issue, jointly published in “Challenges” and “Molecules”, is dedicated to the publication of the latest “Challenges in Synthetic Chemistry”, which includes research results in the field of stereoselective synthesis, enantioselctive synthesis, organometalic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, and total synthesis of natural products. We will consider any submissions associated with synthetic chemistry (including but not limited to: biological, theoretical and mechanistic studies). However, the primary focus of this special issue is related to the development of challenging synthetic methodology and its applications.

Abstract One-electron reductive intramolecular cyclization of enones with ketones or aldehydes mediated by samarium diiodide and electrolysis to afford cis-trimethyl- hydrindanolones. The reactions gave selectivities ranging from 1:1 to 100:0 depending on the conditions. Full article

Abstract
Ptaquiloside (Pta) is a potent carcinogen present in bracken fern and in soil matrices, that can potentially leach to the aquatic environment. More recently its presence in the milk of different farm animals has been reported. Pterosin B (Ptb) and bromopterosin (BrPt) [...] Read more.
Ptaquiloside (Pta) is a potent carcinogen present in bracken fern and in soil matrices, that can potentially leach to the aquatic environment. More recently its presence in the milk of different farm animals has been reported. Pterosin B (Ptb) and bromopterosin (BrPt) represent the most convenient analogues in the detection of ptaquiloside by mass spectrometry. Pterosin sesquiterpenes are also involved in many patented biomedical protocols. In this work we introduce a new and convenient approach to the synthesis in three steps and more than 80% yield of d4-pterosin B (d4-Ptb) and d4-bromopterosin (d4-BrPt), useful as internal standards in the quantification of ptaquiloside.
