Synthetic studies towards the luzopeptins: New amino acid synthons through the aza-Achmatowicz reaction
A new method for the enantioselective synthesis of unusual amino acids has been developed. The chemoenzymatic aza-Achmatowicz rearrangement of appropriate furylglycine derivatives provided nitrogenous synthons that were ...
Selective hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene in 1-butene over alumina supported palladium and palladium/copper catalysts
Copper addition to palladium increases both activity and selectivity in the selective hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene to n-butenes. The bimetal catalyst (Cu/Pd:2/1(atomic)) hydrogenates the diene to virtually 100% conversion ...
