High-resolution probing of early events in amyloid-β aggregation related to Alzheimer's disease
High-resolution structure elucidation of Alzheimer's amyloid-β oligomer is crucial to delineate its pathological phenotype. NMR provides atomic-resolution details of amyloid-β oligomer that could aid in the development of structure-based therapeutics.
Gold and hypervalent iodine(III): liaisons over a decade for electrophilic functional group transfer reactions
Building on mechanistic perspective, the review intends to demonstrate how the uniqueness of Au-catalysts has realized a myriad of electrophilic functional group transfer reactions with the use of hypervalent iodine(III) reagents over the last decade.
Atom-efficient transition-metal-free arylation of N,O-acetals using diarylzinc reagents through Zn/Zn cooperativity
Operating via a special type of Zn/Zn′ cooperation, a new transition-metal free and atom efficient method of arylating N,O-acetals has been developed combining nucleophilic ZnPh2 with Lewis acidic Zn(C6F5)2.
