38. Review: Synthesis of Cortisone
Freshman Organic Chemistry II (CHEM 125B) Discoverers of the structure and biological activity of steroid hormones won seven Nobel Prizes between 1927 and 1975. Studying the steps involved in Woodward's 1951 "total" synthesis of cortisone provides a review of the organic reactions covered this semester. Many steps involved novel insights, others were based on lore from previous work In the area. The overall yield of such sequential syntheses is typically much lower than that of convergent syntheses. Practical syntheses of cortisone were based on modification of related steroids readily available from nature. Milestones in total synthesis include both purely intellectual work with natural products and commercially important synthesis of designed pharmaceuticals. The course ends with thanks to those, young and old, who have taught us all. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Steroids and the Medicinal Activity of Cortisone 07:43 - Chapter 2.

Total Synthesis of a Natural Product - Dance Your PhD
An explanation of why it is important for organic chemists to synthesize biologically active naturally occurring molecules and a simplified representation of how that is done. Often time biologically active naturally occurring molecules are not abundant in nature and therefore nature is not a feasible source. Organic chemists are able to synthesize these molecules in labs and make them more abundant. As a synthetic organic chemist I am able to make chemicals that nature can’t make enough off. So you can think of us as builders on the molecular level. As a total synthetic chemist, I figure out how pieces fit together, what conditions you might need to make two molecules react (or connect) with one another. Sometimes molecules just don't react with one another. Some molecules are temperature sensitive and sometimes molecules just need a little push from a catalyst or activator to get the reaction to occur.

[Wikipedia] Total synthesis
Total synthesis is the complete chemical synthesis of a complex molecule, often a natural product, from simple, commercially available precursors. It usually refers to a process not involving the aid of biological processes, which distinguishes it from semisynthesis. The target molecules can be natural products, medicinally important active ingredients, or organic compounds of theoretical interest. Often the aim is to discover new route of synthesis for a target molecule for which there already exist known routes. Sometimes no route exists and the chemist wishes to find a viable route for the first time. One important purpose of total synthesis is the discovery of new chemical reactions and new chemical reagents. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_synthesis Please support this channl and help me upload more videos.

In the broadest sense, natural products include any substance produced by life. Natural products can also be prepared by chemical synthesis (both semisynthesis and total synthesis) and have played a central role in the development of the field of organic chemistry by providing challenging synthetic targets. The term natural product has also been extended for commercial purposes to refer to cosmetics, dietary supplements, and foods produced from natural sources without added artificial ingredients.Within the field of organic chemistry, the definition of natural products is usually restricted to mean purified organic compounds isolated from natural sources that are produced by the pathways of primary or secondary metabolism. Within the field of medicinal chemistry, the definition is often further restricted to secondary metabolites. Secondary metabolites are not essential for survival, but nevertheless provide organisms that produce them an evolutionary advantage. Many secondary metabolites are cytotoxic and have been selected and optimized through evolution for use as "chemical warfare" agents against prey, predators, and competing organisms.Natural products sometimes have therapeutic benefit as traditional medicines for treating diseases, yielding knowledge to derive active components as lead compounds for drug discovery. Although natural products have inspired numerous U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs, drug development from natural sources has received declining attention by pharmaceutical companies, partly due to unreliable access and supply, intellectual property concerns, seasonal or environmental variability of composition, and loss of sources due to rising extinction rates.

Search for and synthesis of natural organic compounds with unique structures and functions
The Nakata-Saikawa Research Lab in the Department of Applied Chemistry at Keio University’s Faculty of Science and Technology conducts research on organic chemistry of natural products. Q. The natural world has many mysterious phenomena and ingenious tricks that we would never think of. By synthesizing challengingly complex structured organic compounds, or by explaining the nature of yet to be understood mysterious organic phenomena at the molecular level, we think we can discover new compounds, new properties of compounds, and new organic chemical reactions. The Nakata-Saikawa Research Lab has been conducting synthesis research targeting natural organic compounds with complex and unique structures. As part of this research, during the synthesis of the ansa compound kendomycin, under a new method using the Dotz reaction to form an aromatic core while simultaneously generating a ring, the lab has successfully synthesized abundantly varied ansa compounds that cannot be created in the natural world. Q. Ansa compounds have interesting structures so they are fun to make, and quite a variety of bioactive compounds are produced, so in fact some are used in medicines. Of these, kendomycin is a compound that relatively recently was isolated and had its structure determined. From that time it was being targeted by synthetic chemists. We too have focused on synthesizing kendomycin, which may become a lead compound of pharmaceutical drugs, in an interesting manner. In addition to the synthesis of compounds, the Nakata-Saikawa Research Lab is focused on physiological phenomena and natural phenomena in organisms, conducting research to extract related organic compounds. Among this is research on a chemical substance that causes sneezing. Q. There is a red striped jellyfish called chrysaora pacifica. When it gets caught in a fishing net and turns into a powder after becoming dried out and stale, it has long been said that people will sneeze uncontrollably just by passing by it. What is it that causes the sneezing? It is something that causes everybody to sneeze, so to figure out what it is, we caught some chrysaora pacifica and made it into a powder. Using mice, we are administering a sample in their noses and counting the number of sneezes as a method to discover the inducing substance. At this point it appears that the substance is very unstable. It is not as if we understand its structure yet, but we have started to see that the substance causing the sneezing is something unique, so we think this research has become interesting. In addition, the Nakata-Saikawa Research Lab is also conducting fascinating research to explain the mechanisms of biological phenomena. This includes extracting compounds involved in the phenomenon of the calcium in an egg shell moving to the bones of a chick when the chick grows inside the egg. Q. When you look around there are many interesting natural phenomena. Look at the various things around you and give it some thought as to how in the world they became like that. When you do this, you will discover that there are still many extremely interesting unexplained phenomena. If we continue to work hard researching to explain them, I think we will definitely discover some interesting science, so I want everyone to join the world of science.

Carl Djerassi - Working on natural products of chemistry (82/117)
To listen to more of Carl Djerassi’s stories, go to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVV0r6CmEsFwKnZJAXj6a3kZfe4rn_riG Austrian-American Carl Djerassi (1923-2015) was born in Vienna. He revolutionised the field of female contraception when he and his team of chemists produced synthetic progesterone which led to the development of the first oral contraceptive pill. [Listener: Tamara Tracz] TRANSCRIPT: In Mexico I was entirely a synthetic chemist, I was making things with an object to make them, so that they can be used for medicinal purposes, mostly by synthetic chemists, but the cacti, it really started with that. I just developed a curiosity of what’s in it, and that led me to start working on cactus chemistry, and very few people worked on cactus chemistry, there was really only one natural product that was famous, if not notorious, and that was mescaline from peyote buttons, but these were small cacti. They were from Mexico, but they were small, and not the really giant treelike ones here, and so I focused on that and we did- I probably did, maybe a dozen PhD thesis’s, and many post docs who worked on the constituents of giant cacti, and we did some very important work. And it had no- there were no practical consequences of this, and I didn’t even mean there to be, but chemically they were extremely interesting, and that led me also to alkaloid work, and to- what I really found were interesting, triterpines, and triterpines are compounds that look like, like steroids, but are even more complex. I don’t know whether I have some- I may have some structures in here? No, probably not. Chemical structures, but I worked on these, and that led me to alkaloid chemistry, and that led me to antibiotic chemistry, but it led me to the structure elucidation of compounds, rather than to the synthesis of it. And structurally I’ll use, not quite an architectural metaphor, which you try to use for synthesis, to try and draw the difference between total synthesis and partial synthesis, but a different one, and at that time it was, I think for me, intellectually an even more challenging one, and it was something which was primarily practised in Europe, and later also in Japan, and much less so in the United States, which sort of, continued my sort of outside status I mentioned, even in, in chemical priorities. Namely, natural products of chemistry means to identify the chemical structure of chemicals in natural products, and that was the first priority, and the next one was what could you use them for, or why are they there, and then finally, even how are they synthesised by that plant or animal? Most of them were plants at that time. The analogy is that you walk into a pitch dark room, a furnished room, and you want to find out what is in this room, and by that I mean what sort of furniture, and initially, just are there tables, beds, chairs, what are they made out of, what are their shapes, what are their colours, and so on and so forth? And in the end, how are they made, why are they made, why is that there, assuming that you don’t even know what a chair is, and a table? Now, how would you do that if you go in a pitch-dark room and you have nothing? All you can do is grope around and you feel with your fingers, and sometimes you can be grossly misled, and sometimes you wouldn’t be. This is a good example, this table here, which is oval. Well, you know, when you feel it around you would not necessarily think that this is actually a table, and even the material is an unusual material for a table. This happens to be metal, and most dining room tables are not really metal like this, and it wouldn’t feel that way, so you could already be misled if you just did it by feeling, although eventually you might be able to figure it out. Well, the next thing you do is you try and at least light a match, and when you light a match you can really illuminate only very little, and for only a very short period of time, so you have to either light a lot of matches and do it gradually, and then discover it, or maybe if you are lucky you can try and get a candle, and then you can see more, and maybe a flashlight, and so on. Now, of course the ideal thing would be if you would take a photograph, and in fact, if you take a colour photograph then you’ve got everything there. With one photograph with a wide angle lens you take the entire room, you see it right there, and you even see it in colour, and then you can already extrapolate very much what the materials are there, although not necessarily entirely, so that’s exactly what natural product chemistry is. You want to know what is in that particular plant, let us say, but.... Read the full transcript at https://www.webofstories.com/play/carl.djerassi/82

[Wikipedia] Nicolaou Taxol total synthesis
The Nicolaou Taxol total synthesis, published by K. C. Nicolaou and his group in 1994 concerns the total synthesis of Taxol. This organic synthesis was included in Nicolaou's book, 'Classics in Total Synthesis'. Taxol is an important drug in the treatment of cancer but also expensive because the compound is harvested from a scarce resource, namely the pacific yew. This synthetic route to Taxol is one of several; other groups have presented their own solutions, notably the group of Holton with a linear synthesis starting from borneol, the Samuel Danishefsky group starting from the Wieland-Miescher ketone and the Wender group from pinene. The Nicolaou synthesis is a good example of convergent synthesis because the molecule is assembled from 3 pre-assembled synthons. Two major parts are cyclohexene rings A and C that are connected by two short bridges creating an 8 membered ring in the middle (ring B). The third pre-assembled part is an amide tail. Ring D is an oxetane ring fused to ring C. Two key chemical transformations are the Shapiro reaction and the pinacol coupling reaction. The overall synthesis was published in 1995 in a series of four papers in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolaou_Taxol_total_synthesis Please support this channel and help me upload more videos.

Development of New Useful Substances Producible from Chemical Reactions of Organic Compounds
The Takao Laboratory of Keio University's Faculty of Science and Technology Department of Applied Chemistry is engaged in the research and development of artificially creating various organic compounds extracted from natural sources. Q. "As its name implies, natural products are organic compounds found in nature, but I don't mean seaweed like wakame or kombu. People have been discovering substances useful to humankind from nature such as those used in many medications. We are using chemical reactions to synthesize compounds also beneficial to people without relying on living organisms. Another research theme as one of our two main areas of research is the development of synthesis reactions." The Takao Laboratory is conducting research in two main areas with the goal of producing new organic compounds useful to people. One is "research on synthesis of natural products" in which an inexpensive starting substance is chemically converted into compounds useful to living beings, and the other is "development of new organic synthesis reactions" in which chemical reactions of organic compounds are elicited by various conditions. Included in this research are skeletal transformation reactions and efficient catalyst reactions. Q. "The skeleton of organic compound is made of carbon, and for example there are square four-membered rings, namely cyclobutane rings. By using a metal catalyst, the cyclobutane can be changed into what is called cyclopentane. We have been successful in developing chemical reactions that transform skeletal structures. During this process, a catalytic reaction is one in which just a small amount of metal and organic catalyst are used in such reactions and the catalyst spins round and round. We are also working to have this result in skeletal transformation." The Takao Laboratory also conducts research on antitumor and antibacterial substances found in nature. Q. "Naturally occurring microbes are not producing things with the intention of curing cancer in humans, but the result is that they are producing compounds that destroy cancer cells. As for current drugs, it is not as if humans have completely defeated cancer. Through the efforts of people to date, various anticancer drugs have been developed, but I think it's still not nearly enough. I think that synthetic organic chemistry is needed after all to develop scientists who will create new drugs that cure human disease." Through numerous experiments, the Takao Laboratory is overcoming one barrier after another to enable total synthesis of new compounds useful against diseases resistant to treatment. Q. "We use the terms 'new compounds' and 'useful substances' in regard to what we are targeting as set phrases, but as to whether they are useful or not, to be honest I don't know. They are simply new. However, there may come a time some years later, maybe 50 years from now, when this compound is absolutely essential to people. It is for just such a time that we want to test the power of science to show that new compounds can also be created." Q. "As for drugs that are effective in treating cancer or Alzheimer's, there are aspects of their structure that we already know. To make them more efficient will require more efficient chemical reactions. So we always carry the hope that the reactions we are developing will be used in applications such as these."
