Project 2

Synthesis of potentially bioactive compounds and tools for biological studies

Supervisor: Prof. Walther Schmid

Student: Frederica Cappa

This work is intended to develop new potentially bioactive compounds and sophisticated tools for applications within the field of biological chemistry.
The goals are to establish a versatile and flexible synthetic route which gives access towards a variety of the target iminosugars on a preparative scale.
In a second part, focus will be set on the preparation of specifically 13-C ring-labeled aromatic amino acids and precursors thereof, which should be versatile starting points for structural assignments of biopolymers utilizing novel NMR experiments.
