Abstract (Summary)
Homer, Holly K.: Study of N-Acylpyridinium Salt Chemistry and Its Application in the Asymmtric Synthesis of Streptomyces SS20846A. (Under the direction of Dr. Daniel L. Comins) The first part of this research was directed towards a study of the mechanism of N-acylpyridinium salt chemistry. Comparison of de’s obtained from organometallic additions to the pyridinium salt versus analogous non-organometallic additions would show whether chelation of the metals plays a key role in the mechanism. The second focus of this research was on the use of chiral N-acylpyridinium salt chemistry in the asymmetric synthesis of Streptomyces SS20846A, a natural product isolated from a soil sample in Greece which has a restrictive action on the digestive system. The Study of N-Acylpyridinium Salt Chemistry and Its Application in the Asymmetric Synthesis of Streptomyces SS20846A By Holly K. Homer A Thesis submitted to the Graduate Faculty of North Carolina State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science Department of Chemistry Raleigh, North Carolina 2000 Approved by: _____________________________ Dr. Daniel L.
