Shining light on the dark matter of natural products

Abstract

The classical paradigm of large-scale production, isolation, and structural analysis has given us our understanding of almost all known natural products. Yet, advances in metabolomics, bioinformatics, and genetics point to the existence of a parallel natural products universe comprised of metastable, ultra-low abundance metabolites. This dark universe is likely to be far larger than the realm of known compounds, but the chemicals in this space are beyond the reach of classical isolation approaches. A new paradigm is required to find the structures and functions encoded here.

Polyfluorinated carbohydrates

Abstract

Carbohydrates bearing a fluorine atom in place of a hydroxyl group have found applications as mechanistic probes or to study lectin-carbohydrate interactions. Polyfluorinated carbohydrates could represent a good strategy to improve protein-carbohydrate affinities via desolvation together with attractive dipolar interactions mediated by polar C-F bonds.

Remote Functionalization

Combining functionalization at a distant position from a reactive site with the creation of several consecutive stereogenic centers, including the formation of a quaternary carbon stereocenter, in acyclic system represents a pinnacle in organic synthesis. We will present the regioselective Heck arylation of terminal olefins as a distant trigger for the ring-opening of cyclopropanes.

New Frontiers in MOFs

French
Abstract

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline porous materials composed of metal clusters or ions connected by polytopic organic linkers. Their framework structures, pore environment, and functionality make them uniquely tunable by the choice and connection of metal and organic building blocks, allowing the design of innovative materials with customized properties.
