Organocatalytic Transformation of Aldehydes to Thioesters with Visible Light.

Summary of "Organocatalytic Transformation of Aldehydes to Thioesters with Visible Light."

Here we describe a metal free and oxidant free catalytic method of accessing structurally diverse thioesters from readily accessible, widespread aldehydes. A strategy of a simple organic 9,10-phenanthrenequinone promoted hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) with visible light is successfully implemented to selectively generate acyl radicals without inducing crossover reactivity of thioester products. The preparative power of the method is demonstrated by broad substrate scope and wide functional group tolerance, and enables the late-stage modification of complex structures, which are difficult to achieve with the existing protocols.

Techniques using energy such as radio frequency, infrared light, laser light, visible light, or acoustic energy to transfer information without the use of wires, over both short and long distances.

A photoprotein isolated from the bioluminescent jellyfish Aequorea. It emits visible light by an intramolecular reaction when a trace amount of calcium ion is added. The light-emitting moiety in the bioluminescence reaction is believed to be 2-amino-3-benzyl-5-(p-hydroxyphenyl)pyrazine (AF-350).

Visible morphologic changes in cells infected with viruses. It includes shutdown of cellular RNA and protein synthesis, cell fusion, release of lysosomal enzymes, changes in cell membrane permeability, diffuse changes in intracellular structures, presence of viral inclusion bodies, and chromosomal aberrations. It excludes malignant transformation, which is CELL TRANSFORMATION, VIRAL. Viral cytopathogenic effects provide a valuable method for identifying and classifying the infecting viruses.
