Polyunsaturated alkyl amides from echinacea : synthesis of diynes, enynes, and dienes.

Summary of "Polyunsaturated alkyl amides from echinacea : synthesis of diynes, enynes, and dienes."

The synthesis of 20 alkyl amides, including 15 naturally occurring polyunsaturated alkyl amides previously identified from Echinacea spp. (1-13 and 62) or from Achilla sp. (55) and five previously unknown geometric isomers (23, 28, 67, 73, and 80), is described. Importantly, these amides include all of the major alkyl amides present in commercially used Echinacea extracts. The syntheses demonstrate methodology used for constructing alkyl amides containing conjugated diyne and isomerically pure enyne and diene moieties and may be adapted easily for the preparation of other alkyl amides present in Echinacea spp. Terminal-conjugated diynes were prepared by a Cadiot-Chodkiewitz coupling/deprotection sequence utilizing a protected bromoacetylene, and methyl-substituted diynes were made via a base-catalyzed rearrangement of terminal-skipped diynes. Conjugated dienes were prepared conveniently and with high stereoselectivity by the reduction of enynes or diynes with Rieke zinc. With the exception of 1-2 and 11-12, the alkyl amides are synthesized here for the first time, and their NMR data are consistent with that of the reported isolated natural compounds.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genus of perennial herbs used topically and internally. It contains echinacoside, GLYCOSIDES; INULIN; isobutyl amides, resin, and SESQUITERPENES.

Amides composed of unsaturated aliphatic FATTY ACIDS linked with AMINES by an amide bond. They are most prominent in ASTERACEAE; PIPERACEAE; and RUTACEAE; and also found in ARISTOLOCHIACEAE; BRASSICACEAE; CONVOLVULACEAE; EUPHORBIACEAE; MENISPERMACEAE; POACEAE; and SOLANACEAE. They are recognized by their pungent taste and for causing numbing and salivation.

Organic compounds containing the -CO-NH2 radical. Amides are derived from acids by replacement of -OH by -NH2 or from ammonia by the replacement of H by an acyl group. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

Compounds with two triple bonds. Some of them are CYTOTOXINS.

A somewhat heterogeneous class of enzymes that catalyze the transfer of alkyl or related groups (excluding methyl groups). EC 2.5.
