  • Patent number: 11147807
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition comprising a DUSP1 inhibitor. The pharmaceutical composition comprising the DUSP1 inhibitor according to the present invention can solve the problems of inhibitors that target the active site because it inhibits DUSP1 by an allosteric inhibitory mechanism, and is effective for preventing or treating diseases involving DUSP1 enzymes, for example, a cancer such as a liver cancer, a breast cancer and a pancreatic cancer, a hepatitis C, and a depression. In particular, the DUSP1 inhibitor according to the present invention is very effective in treating a depression because it directly acts on neuronal growth.

  • Patent number: 11104656
    Abstract: The invention is based on the finding that when conducting crystallization of FDCA at high temperatures, the formation of significant amounts of colored byproduct can be reduced or even avoided when the FDCA mixture is kept at temperatures above 100° C. for less than 15 minutes. This is achieved by conducting the crystallization process in a continuous reactor. Accordingly, the method comprises the steps of feeding a mixture comprising undissolved FDCA and a solvent to a reactor; and dissolving FDCA by superheating the mixture in the reactor to a temperature of at least 130° C.; and crystallizing FDCA by cooling the mixture in the reactor, wherein the reactor is a continuous reactor and the residence time in the reactor zone wherein the FDCA mixture has a temperature above 100° C. is less than 15 minutes.

  • Patent number: 11053209
    Abstract: A highly efficient, Z-selective ring-closing metathesis system for the formation of macrocycles using a stereoretentive, ruthenium-based catalyst supported by a dithiolate ligand is reported. This catalyst is demonstrated to be remarkably active as observed in initiation experiments showing complete catalyst initiation at ?20° C. within 10 min. Using easily accessible diene starting materials bearing a Z-olefin moiety, macrocyclization reactions generated products with significantly higher Z-selectivity in appreciably shorter reaction times, in higher yield, and with much lower catalyst loadings than in previously reported systems. Macrocyclic lactones ranging in size from twelve-membered to seventeen-membered rings are synthesized in moderate to high yields (68-79% yield) with excellent Z-selectivity (95%-99% Z).
