Checking the traps: The transport of

studies, for example, with mitoxanton as
the electron acceptor and new photochemical assays (see scheme) have given
new insights into the mechanisms of
these processes.
Protein–Protein Interactions
T. Berg*
Does size matter? Can a drug-like molecule efficiently modulate the interaction
between proteins in which the protein–
protein interface (as indicated in the
scheme) is many times larger than the
small molecule itself ? If so, how do you
identify such organic molecules? Answers
to these questions can be found in this
review on the current research aimed at
producing the next generation of drugs.

Tetraozonide of Phosphorus Oxide
They do indeed exist, but not as expected:
binary peroxide compounds of phosphorus. Whereas the peroxide P2O6 described
by Schenk in 1937 still remains a presumption, the reaction of phosphorus(iii)
oxide with ozone at low temperature has
led to the tetraozonide P4O18 (see picture),
the first defined binary peroxo compound
of phosphorus. This is the oxygen-richest
phosphorus compound known to date,
and possibly could be used as a source for
the generation of singlet oxygen under
very mild conditions.

Efficient Enantioselective Total Synthesis
of ()-Epipodophyllotoxin
In only twelve steps the total synthesis of
()-epipodophyllotoxin (2) has been
completed starting from commercially
available piperonal (1). The first stereocenter was formed under auxilary control,
while the following epoxidation and radical cyclization proceeded with outstanding diastereoselectivity, which enabled the
target molecule to be isolated in an overall
yield of 30 % and with 97 % ee.
Regioselective Arene Alkylation
Methyl-substituted arenes can be synthesized with high regioselectivity in only two
steps through formal exchange of an
aromatic carboxylic acid function with an
alkyl substituent. The results obtained
with toluic acid illustrate that good to very
good yields can be obtained from inexpensive reagents (see scheme).

Pyrenes: Implications for the Reduction

Pyrene reduction revisited: A reductive
dimerization process is observed for
strained pyrene derivatives, which occurs
through single-electron reduction with
lithium metal (see scheme). This process
has implications for the reduction of
pyrene itself. Various NMR methods can
be utilized to characterize the products
that result from such reactions.

species) can deliver both hydride and an
allyl group to a diketone, with control of
the relative configuration of up to three
new stereogenic centers (see scheme).

comparison with X-ray crystal structure

subsequent studies. The originally
accepted CH activation during this reaction with titanium(iv) alkoxides is apparently not involved in the real reaction
mechanism. Further addition of aldehydes
to alcohols, instead of to the corresponding titanium(iv) alkoxides, suggests that
an elimination–addition mechanism
analogous to a Prins reaction is involved.
