Zinc-catalyzed chemoselective reduction of tertiary and secondary amides to amines.
Summary of "Zinc-catalyzed chemoselective reduction of tertiary and secondary amides to amines."
General and convenient procedures for the catalytic hydrosilylation of secondary and tertiary amides under mild conditions have been developed. In the presence of inexpensive zinc catalysts, tertiary amides are easily reduced by applying monosilanes. Key to success for the reduction of the secondary amides is the use of zinc triflate and disilanes with dual SiH moieties. The presented hydrosilylations proceed with excellent chemoselectivity in the presence of sensitive ester, nitro, azo, nitrile, olefins, and other functional groups, thus making the method attractive for organic synthesis.

Tris(pentafluorophenyl)boron B(C6F5)3 is an effective catalyst for the hydrosilylative reduction of tertiary and N-phenyl secondary amides. It allows for the mild reduction of a variety of these amide...
Ni-catalysts are used for the first time to synthesize highly important α-hydroxy amides and β-amino alcohols from α-keto amides by chemoselective and complete reduction using hydrosilanes. Chemose...
A new approach for the fully chemoselective α-arylation of amides is presented. By means of electrophilic amide activation, aryl groups can be regioselectively introduced α- to amides, even in the p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nitrous acid sodium salt. Used in many industrial processes, in meat curing, coloring, and preserving, and as a reagent in ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES. It is used therapeutically as an antidote in cyanide poisoning. The compound is toxic and mutagenic and will react in vivo with secondary or tertiary amines thereby producing highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.
A family of enzymes that catalyze the stereoselective, regioselective, or chemoselective syn-dehydrogenation reactions. They function by a mechanism that is linked directly to reduction of molecular OXYGEN.
The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.
Hydrogen-donating proteins that participates in a variety of biochemical reactions including ribonucleotide reduction and reduction of PEROXIREDOXINS. Thioredoxin is oxidized from a dithiol to a disulfide when acting as a reducing cofactor. The disulfide form is then reduced by NADPH in a reaction catalyzed by THIOREDOXIN REDUCTASE.
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.
