Photochemical reactions of microcrystalline thymidine.
Nucleoside/nucleotide/oligonucleotide photoreactions usually result in a number of products simultaneously due to a wide range of conformers existing at a given time. Such a complicated reaction pattern makes it difficult for one to focus on a single

Artificial metalloenzymes for enantioselective catalysis.
Artificial metalloenzymes have emerged over the last decades as an attractive approach towards combining homogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis. A wide variety of catalytic transformations have been established by artificial metalloenzymes, thus esta

Dual Catalysis Strategies in Photochemical Synthesis.
The interaction between an electronically excited photocatalyst and an organic molecule can result in the genertion of a diverse array of reactive intermediates that can be manipulated in a variety of ways to result in synthetically useful bond const

Conjugate addition-enantioselective protonation reactions.
The addition of nucleophiles to electron-deficient alkenes represents one of the more general and commonly used strategies for the convergent assembly of more complex structures from simple precursors. In this review the addition of diverse protic an

Catalytic, enantioselective vinylogous Michael reactions.
Recent progress in the field of catalytic, enantioselective vinylogous Michael reactions of latent dienolates is described which furnish optically highly enriched chiral 1,7-dioxo compounds of great utility in one synthetic operation. Emphasis is giv

Monitoring Photochemical Reactions Using Marangoni Flows.
We evaluated the sensitivity and time resolution of a technique for photochemical reaction monitoring based on the interferometric detection of the deformation of liquid films. The reaction products change the local surface tension and induce Marango

Enantioselective Lewis Acid Catalysis in Intramolecular [2 + 2] Photocycloaddition Reactions: A Mechanistic Comparison between Representative Coumarin and Enone Substrates.
The intramolecular [2 + 2] photocycloaddition of three 4-(alk-4-enyl)coumarins and three 1-(alk-4-enoyl)-2,3-dihydropyridones was studied in the absence and in the presence of Lewis acids (irradiation wavelength λ = 366 nm). Spectral and kinetic data

Enantioselective Borylative Dearomatization of Indoles through Copper(I) Catalysis.
The enantioselective borylative dearomatization of a heteroaromatic compound has been achieved using a copper(I) catalyst and a diboron reagent. This reaction involves the regio- and enantioselective addition of active borylcopper(I) species to indol

Enantioselective iron-catalyzed intramolecular cyclopropanation reactions.
An iron-catalyzed asymmetric intramolecular cyclopropanation was realized in high yields and excellent enantioselectivity (up to 97% ee) by using the iron complexes of chiral spiro-bisoxazoline ligands as catalysts. The superiority of iron catalysts

Photomechanical actuation of ligand geometry in enantioselective catalysis.
A catalyst that couples a photoswitch to the biaryl backbone of a chiral bis(phosphine) ligand, thus allowing photochemical manipulation of ligand geometry without perturbing the electronic structure is reported. The changes in catalyst activity and
