Novel homochiral vinyloxazaborolidines were synthesized and subsequently hydrogenated using Pd/C under ambient conditions to produce, after oxidation of the boronate group, enantiomerically enriched alcohols. This study serves as the first example of asymmetric hydrogenation utilizing oxazaborolidines as chiral auxiliaries. Substrate syntheses and conformational studies were described at the 227th American Chemical Society National Meeting.
Jay Angevine is an anatomist whose thirst for adventure led him to become a deputy sheriff. Command of human anatomy and intense compassion make him a popular teacher of medical professionals and law enforcement officers. He is Medical Advisor to a manufacturer of police batons in world-wide use. He teaches the effects of trauma and, if necessary, how to control noncompliant individuals in effective yet humane ways.
This drawing is derived from a lecture by Prof. Jay Angevine describing his discovery that neurons in the cortex emerge (are born) in exactly the opposite spatial pattern than had long been assumed. This breakthrough profoundly changed the way scientists think about brain development. Angevine’s studies were prompted by the much earlier work of the great Spanish neuroanatomist Santiago Ramòn y Cajal (the mischievous youth with bow and arrow).
