The first total synthesis of antiplasmoidal isoindolinone alkaloids, spirocollequins A and B, has been accomplished. The proposed structures of spirocollequins have been supported through the comparison of spectroscopic properties of the synthetic samples with those of natural products as well as single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis using a synthetic precursor of spirocollequin B.

Asian Journal of Organic Chemistry  2022, 11, e202100773. (DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.202100773) 

A new application of amido-functionalized allylboronates to asymmetric 1,4-addition in water has been developed. Extremely high enantioselective 1,4-addition was achieved by employing N-mesityl maleimide as a substrate under CuSO4/bis(oxazoline) catalysis, affording the adduct with >99% ee.
