• Chemists suggest a new way to synthesize steroid analogs

    3 days ago - By Phys.org

    Scientists from RUDN University and the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv have found a way to produce aromatic rings in organic compounds in three stages. These stages proceed successively in one-pot conditions and at room temperature. Now analogues of hormones, steroids, some sugars, terpenes and other complex organic substances can be synthesized faster and at softer conditions. The paper was published in Tetrahedron Letters.

    RUDN University chemists have synthesized new isoquinoline derivatives. Due to their biological activity, these compounds have applications in new drugs, including antispasmodics and bactericidal agents. Additionally, in the future, they could contribute to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The scientists presented the results of their experiments in Mendeleev Communications.

  • Russian chemists developed a way to synthesize drugs from renewable precursors

    3 days ago - By Phys.org

    Scientists of RUDN University and their Russian colleagues have developed a new approach to the synthesis of benzofurans from cheap raw materials. Original furans can be produced from wastes of agriculture and woodworking industry, such as sawdust, cobs and other by-products of crop production. The results of the work were described in an article published in Tetrahedron.
