Diversity-oriented synthesis of β-lactams was achieved via Ugi/Michael reaction cascades under mild conditions. The intramolecular hydrogen bonding between the heteroatom from an aldehyde component and the amide NH group controls the chemoselectivity of the Michael reaction versus the aza-Michael reaction. DFT calculation was performed to clarify the mechanism, chemo-selectivity and diastereoselectivity of this work. This one-pot protocol offers a straightforward method to build a diversified β-lactam library for drug discovery.

The synthesis of a 1,5-lactone 2,4-O-alkylidene-D-erythrose derivative was found to be a highly stereoselective template in Michael addition trough the reaction of a D-erythrosyl 1,5-lactone derivativ...
Detailed kinetic analysis for the Cu(I)-catalyzed Kinugasa reaction forming β-lactams has revealed an anomalous overall zero-order reaction profile, due to opposing positive and negative orders in ni...
Due to its high potential for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds, Michael addition reaction is one of the closest reactions to the heart of synthetic organic chemists. Electrochemistry presents a ve...
Concentrations and effects of β-Lactams in critically ill children are unpredictable and the risk of under-exposure may be associated with poor clinical outcomes. In addition, between-sub...
The purpose of this study is to establish the rationale for the practice of performing an oral reintroduction test without previous skin tests in children at low risk of IgE-mediated react...
The initial step of wound management, debridement, is thought to be critical in promoting wound healing. Of the numerous debridement modalities, ultrasound seems to hold promising results ...
The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of added protein+leucine or caffeine to 1.2 g/kg/h CHO on the rate of post-exercise muscle glycogen re-synthesis in healthy, recre...
There is growing evidence to conclude that part of the cascade leading to heatstroke is related to an inflammatory reaction triggered by the heat stress. The reduced ability to sustain hea...
LACTAMS forming compounds with a ring size of approximately 1-3 dozen atoms.
Cyclic AMIDES formed from aminocarboxylic acids by the elimination of water. Lactims are the enol forms of lactams.
A reaction characterized by a violet color upon the addition of copper sulfate to all compounds with two amide or peptide bonds linked directly or through an intermediate carbon atom. Used in the detection and estimation of proteins and peptides having more than two amino acids.
An ATP-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the addition of ADP to alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate to form ADP-glucose and diphosphate. The reaction is the rate-limiting reaction in prokaryotic GLYCOGEN and plant STARCH biosynthesis.
