Zhou, Y., Andreou, A., Biktagirov, E., Eames, J., & Wadhawan, J. (2010). Comparison of Birch with electrochemical reduction of 2,3-diphenyl-1,4- diazaspiro[4.5]deca-1,3-diene. Electrochemistry communications, 12(11), (1493-1497). doi:10.1016/j.elecom.2010.08.016. ISSN 1388-2481

Reduction of 2,3-diphenyl-1,4-diazaspiro[4.5]deca-1,3-diene is investigated both voltammetrically (glassy-carbon electrode, 20°C, non-aqueous-solvents) and using dissolving-metals (sodium, −78°C, tetrahydrofuran (THF)/NH3(l)). Remarkabl... Read More

Benoit, D., Coulbeck, E., Eames, J., & Motevalli, M. (2008). On the structure and chiroptical properties of (S)-4-isopropyl-oxazolidin-2-one. Tetrahedron: Asymmetry, 19(9), (1068-1077). doi:10.1016/j.tetasy.2008.03.032. ISSN 0957-4166

The specific rotation of (S)-4-isopropyl-oxazolidin-2-one is extremely solvent dependent. In chloroform it is dextrorotatory {[α] D 26 = + 15.5 (c 5.2, CHCl 3 )}, whereas in ethanol it is levorotatory {[α] D 26 = - 16.1 (c 5.2, EtOH)}. © 2008 Elsevie... Read More
