I am going to post here synthetic procedures that pleased me. The experiments were joy to set up+run, the purifications were a piece of cake, the crystals were shiny and the yields were terrific – or maybe weren’t but I liked the preparation anyway. Many procedures came from the literature, some were modified and few are my own. I hoped (and tried) to make these write-ups reproducible and reasonably safe – but I could be wrong and lucky:
‘It is necessary that the operator takes all precautions to preserve himself from misfortune.’
Sorry if you are looking for psychoactive or energetic compounds, you won’t find help here – my work is related to cancer and neurology research. In medicinal chemistry, one often cannot present a full account. You will see some building blocks, precursors, reagents but most likely not the final stuff.
Update: End of daily posting. Please feel free to submit any good synthetic procedure you like to share here in Org Prep Daily. Cheers to Chris Douglas.
