Ichikawa rearrangement: a tool for preparation of allylamines, amino acid derivatives and aza-heterocycles
Our research is aimed at the development of new synthetic methodologies based on the application of pericyclic reactions, including transition metal catalysis. We are strongly focus on asymmetric transformations and synthesis of biologically and pharmacologically active organic compounds including amino acids, peptidomimetics, alkaloids, carbohydrates, iminosugars or β-lactams.
The Kinugasa reaction: an "ugly duckling" of β-lactam chemistry
Cyclic imines: a one-pot synthesis and further transformations
Nitrones: versatile buldings blocks in organic synthesis
