  • 1 BINOL compounds are precursors to a class of natural products generically called the perylenequinones, 2 and are represented by the protein kinase C inhibitors cercosporin, phleichrome, and the calphostins. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • catalyst
  • In one study, helicene was synthesized in an olefin metathesis reaction of a divinyl compound (prepared from 1,1'-bi-2-naphthol (BINOL) in several steps), with Grubbs' second generation catalyst: Other approach is also non-photochemical and is based on assembly of biphenylyl-naphthalenes and their platinum-catalyzed double cycloisomerization leading to various helicenes: Polyacenes are the linear 1,3-fused or meta-analogs of helicenes.

  • Kozlowski and coworkers have applied a 1,5-diaza-cis-decalin copper(II) catalyst in the presence of molecular oxygen, in the enantioselective couplings of a diverse array of substituted naphthols from simple achiral starting materials ( Scheme 9, Table 2 ). (sigmaaldrich.com)
