Summary of "Access to Enantioenriched Spiro-ε-Lactam Oxindoles via an N-Heterocyclic Carbene-Catalyzed 4+3 Annulation of Flexible Oxotryptamines with Enals."

Oxotryptamines were firstly used as flexible four-atom synthons in an NHC-catalyzed formal [4+3] annulation, providing a novel enantioselective method to access structurally diverse spiro-ε-lactam oxindoles with excellent enantioselectivities. This metal-free reaction features a broad substrate scope, excellent functional-group tolerance and proceeds under mild reaction conditions. Importantly, enantiopure privileged hexahydropyrroloindoles could be easily constructed via an one-pot process from the resulting spiro-ε-Lactam oxindoles.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.

Monocyclic, bacterially produced or semisynthetic beta-lactam antibiotics. They lack the double ring construction of the traditional beta-lactam antibiotics and can be easily synthesized.

Heterocyclic compounds that contain two rings that share two non-adjacent atoms in common.

Four-membered cyclic AMIDES, best known for the PENICILLINS based on a bicyclo-thiazolidine, as well as the CEPHALOSPORINS based on a bicyclo-thiazine, and including monocyclic MONOBACTAMS. The BETA-LACTAMASES hydrolyze the beta lactam ring, accounting for BETA-LACTAM RESISTANCE of infective bacteria.

Multiple ring heterocyclic compounds containing two or more rings that share two atoms and one bond in common.
