HOCA to publish a New Synthesis of Chiral 2-Oxospiro-[indole-3,4′- (1′,4′-dihydropyridines)]

We are interested in the enantioselective synthesis of highly functionalized molecules with biological activity. In this frame, we have just published “a preliminary study” in the development of a “New Organocatalytic Asymmetric Synthesis of Highly Substituted Chiral 2-Oxo Spiro-[indole-3,4′- (1′,4′-dihydropyridine)] … Continue reading
