Abstract: The present invention relates to a salt of a carboxylic acid with a diamine such as 2,2?-(ethylenedioxy)diethyl amine, 3,3?-(ethylenedioxy)dipropyl amine and 2,2?-oxybis(ethylamine) and a method of preparing such salts. Preferably the carboxylic acid is a fermentation product such as clavulanic acid, mycophenolic acid or pravastatin.
Abstract: Diels-Alder adducts of dienophiles such as epoxybutene with dienes such as cyclopentadiene and cyclohexadiene are produced by carrying out the Diels-Alder reaction thereof at an elevated pressure. Addional dienophiles disclosed include 2,5-dihydrofuran and derivatives thereof; Additional dienes include isoprene and butadiene. Compounds produced from such reactions are also disclosed.
Abstract: The present invention provides pravastatin sodium substantially free of pravastatin lactone and epiprava, the C-6 epimer of pravastatin. The present invention further provides a novel process for recovering pravastatin sodium from a fermentation broth in such high purity. The process includes the stages of forming an solution of the compound by extraction, obtaining an ammonium salt of pravastatin from the solution, purifying the ammonium salt of the compound and transposing the salt of the compound to pravastatin sodium.

Abstract: The invention relates to certain substituted phenoxypropionaldehyde derivatives, formulations of said derivatives and the use thereof for preemergence or postemergence control of noxious plants, i.e., weeds.
Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for synthesizing A-nor and A-nor-18-homo-steroids. The invention is concerned with providing a total synthesis for the compounds called Dinordin and 18-homo-Dinordin. The preparation of other compounds will also be evident.
Abstract: Method is provided for cyclization of polyunsaturated substituted acylic or monocarbocyclic initiator group containing compound having an endocyclic double bond with a chalcogen atom in the allylic position of the initiator group and having at least two sites of unconjugated aliphatic unsaturation in the side chain substituent on the ring. The polyunsaturated compound is cyclized in the presence of a strong acid in a protic solvent which is inert to the acid, preferably a hydroxylic solvent. Mild temperatures and varying times are employed. The products are useful primarily as intermediates for naturally occurring and synthetic steroids. By appropriate substitution of the side chain, the steroidial products are provided with the substituent at C-11, which upon cyclization results in the alpha-configuration. By resolution of the intermediates prior to cyclization, optically active steroids can be obtained.

Abstract: Polyenine compounds are provided having the naturally occurring geometry and a group which in the presence of acid initiates a carbocation cyclization to a steroid or A-nor-steroid structure, particularly the pregnane parent structure. The compounds are formed for the most part by condensation of two units prepared from readily available small molecules and are joined to form a polyenine, usully having a substituted carbocyclic ring which upon contact with a Lewis acid catalyst (includes protonic) cyclizes directly to provide the 5-membered D ring as well as substitution at the C-20 position.
