Dr. Vinayak Pagar( GUEST BLOGGER) Development of a Povarov Reaction/Carbene Generation Sequence for Alkenyldiazocarbonyl Compounds

It’s only fair to share… Discussing my paper…….. Metal-catalyzed cycloadditions of alkenyldiazo reagents are useful tools to access carbo- and heterocycles.[1] These diazo compounds are chemically sensitive toward both Brønsted orLewis acids. Their reported cycloadditions rely heavily on the formation of metal carbenes to initiate regio- and stereoselective [3+n] cycloadditions (n=2–4) with suitable dipolarophiles.[2–4] A noncarbene route was postulated for a …

New paper on Trelagliptin succinate

It’s only fair to share… Trelagliptin succinate, a novel once-weekly oral dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor, was approved for the Japanese market on March 26, 2015 Trelagliptin exhibited a better potency against human DPP-4 than alogliptin and sitagliptin, along with its excellent selectivity and slow-binding properties that may partially contribute to its sustained efficacy. In phase III …
