Summary of "Synthesis of Pyrrole and Carbazole Alkaloids."

An overview of recent transition metal-catalyzed syntheses of pyrroles and carbazoles is presented. The focus is on methods which have been applied to the preparation of biologically active naturally occurring pyrrole and carbazole alkaloids. For pyrroles, special attention is paid to silver(I)-catalyzed cyclization reactions. For carbazoles, iron(0)-mediated and palladium(0/II)-catalyzed cyclization reactions are highlighted and their broad range of applications is discussed.

A one-pot direct iodination of Fischer-Borsche ring using molecular iodine and its utility in the synthesis of 6-oxygenated carbazole alkaloids.

An efficient regioselective iodination of the Fischer-Borsche ring has been achieved using molecular iodine, in a one-pot synthesis. The acid, metal and oxidant-free condition of the present method is...

Three new carbazole alkaloids and biological activities of Murraya koenigii.

Three new carbazole alkaloids, mukoenigatin (1), bikoeniquinonine (2) and murrayadinal (3), were isolated from the aerial parts of Murraya koenigii, along with mukeonine-B (4). Their molecular structu...

Benzannulation of Indoles to Carbazoles and Its Applications for Syntheses of Carbazole Alkaloids.

A novel and efficient method for the benzannulation of indoles to carbazoles is reported. γ-Carbonyl tert-butylperoxide is applied as a new diene building block for the π-extension of simple indoles...

One-pot Synthesis of Pyrrole-2-carboxylates and -carboxamides via an Electrocyclization/Oxidation Sequence.

An electrocyclic ring closure is the key step of an efficient one-pot method for the synthesis of pyrrole-2-carboxylates and carboxamides from chalcones and glycine esters or amides. The 3,4-dihydro-2...

Antioxidant effects of the highly-substituted carbazole alkaloids and their related carbazoles.

Antioxidant activities of 3-oxygenated and 3,4-dioxygenated carbazole alkaloids and their related carbazoles were comprehensively evaluated. In all assay systems, the 3,8-dihydroxycarbazoles carbazoma...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Alkaloids originally isolated from the ergot fungus Claviceps purpurea (Hypocreaceae). They include compounds that are structurally related to ergoline (ERGOLINES) and ergotamine (ERGOTAMINES). Many of the ergot alkaloids act as alpha-adrenergic antagonists.

Tetrahydroisoquinolinol alkaloids in both dextro and levo forms, originally found in SALSOLA plants.

Alkaloids found in OPIUM from PAPAVER that induce analgesic and narcotic effects by action upon OPIOID RECEPTORS.

Organic nitrogenous bases. Many alkaloids of medical importance occur in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, and some have been synthesized. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

Catalyzes the oxidation of catechol to 2-hydroxymuconate semialdehyde in the carbazole and BENZOATE degradation via HYDROXYLATION pathways. It also catalyzes the conversion of 3-methylcatechol to cis, cis-2-hydroxy-6-oxohept-2,4-dienoate in the TOLUENE and XYLENE degradation pathway. This enzyme was formerly characterized as EC
