The cover picture shows a bay boletus. xerocomus hadius. The chemical formula of
badion A. a dye found in the cap of this mushroom, is superimposed on the right of
the photo. The identical partial structures .in the formula (highlighted in green and
yellow) were identified with the genetic computer algorithm presented by M.
Wagener and J. Gasteiger on p. 1189 ff. The steps in this algorithm are shown
schematically on the left. This procedure facilitates comparison of structures, a
process required for the analysis of biological activity, the elucidation of biosynthetic routes. or the identification of appropriate starting materials for a synthesis.

The gegenion often exercises a substantial influence on the course of “ionic” organo
alkali-metal reactions. The compounds comprising ions of alkali metals and “carbanions“ are present in solution as monomeric o r aggregated contact ion pairs, or
solvent-separated ion pairs. The gegenion thus changes the electronic and spatial
structure of the anion by charge-localization and pyramidalization. Only through ab
initio calculations can results be obtained without the falsifying influences of solvation and aggregation on the structures of the carbanionoid moiety, which otherwise
prevent comparisons within a group of the periodic table.

Rates never before achieved for the hydrolysis of
amides are attained by the Cu2(0,) complex I ,
which converts dimethylformamide into the forinate ion in seconds (half-lives of amides in water
are often several years!). The interacting Cu ions
play an important role. Such simple model systems
can provide insights into the structure-activity relationships of enzymes and even lead to the development of highly active catalysts.

Overall yields up to 100000 times greater than that of
the first, and for almost 40 years the only, total
synthesis of strychnine ( I ) by Woodward et al. (28
steps) are obtained in four new approaches to the
natural product. The strategies and key steps in
these routes are discussed in this article. One approach provides strychnine enantioselectively. another reaches the target molecule in only 15 steps.

Remarkable stability is shown by the recently observed 3 H isomer 1 of indole (2) (T 2 100 s at pH E 9
and 25°C). The equilibrium constant pK, of the
tautomerization of 2 to 1 is 5.8 k 0 . 2 ; in other words,
the equilibrium concentration of 1 lies in the range
of 1 to 2 ppm. The tautomerization is catalyzed by
acid and-less efficiently- by base.
Two Sn[N(SiMe,),] moieties arranged trans. linked by a 1.4-diaminosubstituted cyclohexane or benzene ring describes the first heteroleptic bis(stanny1ene)s 1 and 2
(R = SiMe,), respectively; the bis(germy1ene) is isomorphous with 2. The replacement of the N(SiMe,), groups for aryloxy groups takes place on addition of
Sn(OAr), to I and 2; surprisingly, the treatment of 2 with SnCl, affords the redox
products 3 and metallic tin.

The photosystem here, which absorbs visible light
and transfers electrons from an electron donor D to
an electron acceptor A and then to a substrate, is
composed of D = Ph3P and A = dicyanoanthracene.
Enones 1 were chosed as substrates. After reduction
to the radical anion they cyclize to form 2. This
conversion is a variant of a cyclization mediated
by tin hydride but without toxic side products.

With a genetic algorithm, a computer-based optimization method that imitates the adaptation methods of nature. the maximum substructure common
to two molecules can be found. Appropriate starting
materials for the target of a synthesis can thus be
found with this method. In an analogous procedure
the largest substructure contained twice in a single
molecule can be identified so that synthesis precursors can be used several times in a synthetic pathway. as exemplified with badion A (1).

Analyses of Biological Activity
A D,,-symmetric structure with a delocalized rc electron system describes the ground state of s-indacene
(1). although it is a formally antiaromatic system.
These results, obtained by both high-level a b initio
MO methods and calculations based on density
functional theory, are in agreement with the known
structure of 1,3.5,7-tetra-terr-butyl-s-indacene.
