  • Synthesis and luminescence properties of substituted benzils

    Yasui M., Fujihara T., Ohtsu H., Wada Y., Shimada T., Zhu Y., Kawano M., Hanaya K., Sugai T., Higashibayashi S.

    Communications Chemistry 6 ( 1 )  2023.12

    Research paper (scientific journal), Accepted

     View Summary

    Photophysical properties of benzil (1,2-diphenylethane-1,2-dione) and its derivatives in the crystal state have recently attracted much attention. However, the study of substituted benzils has mostly been limited to para-substituted derivatives, which did not induce a significant effect on the emission wavelength compared to pristine benzil. The effects of ortho- and meta-substituents on the photophysical properties in the crystal state have not been investigated so far. Our recently developed organocatalytic pinacol coupling of substituted benzaldehydes allowed us to prepare various ortho-, meta-, and para-substituted benzil derivatives and to investigate their luminescence properties. Ortho- and meta-substituents affected the electronic states of benzils in the crystal state, resulting in differences in their luminescence properties. The luminescence wavelength and type, i.e., phosphorescence or fluorescence, were altered by these substituents. Fast self-recovering phosphorescence-to-phosphorescence mechanochromism by the para-CF3 substituent at room temperature was also discovered.

  • Unified short syntheses of oxygenated tricyclic aromatic diterpenes by radical cyclization with a photoredox catalyst

    Hashimoto R., Hanaya K., Sugai T., Higashibayashi S.

    Communications Chemistry 6 ( 1 )  2023.12

    Research paper (scientific journal), Accepted

     View Summary

    The biomimetic two-phase strategy employing polyene cyclization and subsequent oxidation/substitution is an effective approach for divergent syntheses of [6-6-6]-tricyclic diterpenes. However, this strategy requires lengthy sequences for syntheses of oxygenated tricyclic aromatic abietane/podocarpane diterpenes owing to the many linear oxidation/substitution steps after cyclization. Here, we present a new synthetic route based on a convergent reverse two-phase strategy employing a reverse radical cyclization approach, which enabled the unified short syntheses of four aromatic abietane/podocarpane diterpenes and the divergent short syntheses of other related diterpenes. Oxygenated and substituted precursors for cyclization were convergently prepared through Friedel-Crafts acylation and rhodium-catalyzed site-selective iodination. Radical redox cyclization using an iridium photoredox catalyst involving neophyl rearrangement furnished the thermodynamically favored 6-membered ring preferentially. (±)-5,6-Dehydrosugiol, salvinolone, crossogumerin A, and Δ5-nimbidiol were synthesized in only 8 steps. An oxygenated cyclized intermediate was also useful for divergent derivatization to sugiol, ferruginol, saprorthoquinone, cryptomeriololide, and salvinolone.

  • Selective modification of tryptophan in polypeptides via C-N coupling with azoles using in situ-generated iodine-based oxidants in aqueous media

    Watanabe S., Wada Y., Kawano M., Higashibayashi S., Sugai T., Hanaya K.

    Chemical Communications 59 ( 87 ) 13026 - 13029 2023.10

    Research paper (scientific journal), Accepted,  ISSN  13597345

     View Summary

    This study demonstrates the C-N coupling of tryptophan with azoles, promoted by an in situ-generated iodine-based oxidant. The protocol was successfully applied to the selective modification of tryptophan in nonprotected polypeptide bearing oxidatively sensitive residues in acidic aqueous media. The present method allows the attachment of reactive handles to polypeptides and the peptide stapling.

  • Inversion of Diaza[5]Helicenes Through an N−N Bond Breaking Pathway

    Kobayashi T., Ishiwari F., Fukushima T., Nojima Y., Hasegawa M., Mazaki Y., Hanaya K., Sugai T., Higashibayashi S.

    Chemistry - A European Journal 29 ( 43 )  2023.08

    Research paper (scientific journal), Accepted,  ISSN  09476539

     View Summary

    1,1’,10,10’-Biphenothiazine and its S,S,S’,S’-tetroxide are diaza[5]helicenes with N−N linkages. Kinetic experiments on racemization together with DFT calculations revealed that they undergo inversion through the N−N bond breaking pathway rather than the general conformational pathway. In these diaza[5]helicenes with this inversion mechanism, the reduction of electronic repulsion in the N−N bond by modification of S to SO2 at the outer position of the helix led to a significantly higher inversion barrier, 35.3 kcal/mol, compared to [5]helicene. 1,1’,10,10’-Biphenothiazine S,S,S’,S’-tetroxide was highly resistant to acid-mediated N−N bond breaking and racemization under acidic conditions.

  • Intramolecular cyclization of m-homoprenylphenols through oxidative nucleophilic aromatic substitution

    Deguchi H., Hanaya K., Sugai T., Higashibayashi S.

    Chemical Communications 59 ( 6 ) 748 - 751 2022.12

    Research paper (scientific journal), Accepted

     View Summary

    We developed an intramolecular cyclization of m-homoprenylphenols and related m-prenylphenols to bicyclic skeletons by hypervalent iodine reagents through an oxidative nucleophilic aromatic substitution using the prenyl group as a carbon nucleophile. The reaction was applicable for the syntheses of 5/6-, 6/6-, and 7/6-fused ring systems.

  • The development of the synthetic routes utilizing the selectivity in enzyme catalysis

    T. Sugai

    Pacificem2021 (Online) , 

    2021.12

    Oral presentation (invited, special), Pacifichem

     View Summary

    In the organic process chemistries, the integrated use of
    chemo- (organic synthesis) enzymatic (biotechnology) transformation
    approach takes advantages over individual procedures, towards the best
    solution to make the design and diagram for target compounds. In this talk,
    we focus upon the use of lipases, which are developed for food
    manufacturing and detergent industries, and cheaply commercially
    available. Lipases work starting by the nucleophilic attack of serine hydroxy
    groups involved in their active sites, and the subsequent decomposition of
    enzyme-substrate complexes provide products and regenerate active
    enzymes. By the attack with alcohols for the latter step, lipases, especially
    in immobilized forms, exhibit the catalytic activities of transesterification in
    organic solvents. Those activities were demonstrated for deprotection of
    phenolic esters and kinetic resolution of enantiomers [1]. The rate of lipasecatalyzed
    transesterification on polyphenolic substrates are affected by the
    neighboring steric hindrance [2]. When flavonoid acetates and their
    glycosylated forms were submitted to lipase-catalyzed transestericiation
    conditions, deacetylation preferentially occur at C-4‘ position, the least
    hindered phenolic acetates [3-5]. When severely hindered
    naphthohydroquinone diacetate with both ortho- and peri- substituents,
    diverse site selectivity was observed depending upon the sort of lipases [6].
    Lipase-triggered aldol reaction is also presented. Indoxyl acetate was a
    good substrate for the deacetylation with lipases. The syntheses of
    indirubin and 6-bromoindirubin were achieved via the aldol condensation
    between isatins and an indoxyl anion generated by lipase-catalyzed
    reaction with triethylamine, under anhydrous and anaerobic conditions as
    the key step [7]

     View Summary

    Complementary and synergistic utilization of enzyme-catalyzed reactions and chemical transformation was studied, toward the efficient synthesis of complex target molecules involving valuable natural and unnatural products. The achievements are shown below. Lipase-catalyzed transesterification proceeded with specific site-selectivity contrasting to chemical transformations, and the syntheses of selinone and astringin, artepillin C became successful. It was revealed that the transesterification under non-aqueous conditions was advantageous for the substrates which are labile to water and/or prone to protonation under aqueous conditions. The preparation of highly enantiomerically pure (R)-3-hydroxy-N-methylpiperidine by the lipase-catalyzed kinetic resolution of corresponding racemate was established. The synthesis of enantiomers of NMB carboxylic acid was also successful, by discriminating he stereochemistry of remote chiral center in a primary acetate, as the key step.
