      Eliasen, Anders (2010-01-01)
      A total enantioselective synthesis of the SSRI (-)-Fluoxetine (Prozac?) is presented. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) work to prevent the reabsorption of serotonin, thus increasing the extracellular ...
    • Continued Query into Chiral Chromenes 

      Eliasen, Anders (2009-01-01)
      A synthetic route for the preparation of enantio enriched chromenes is presented. From reducing the effects of tachycardia (elevated heart rate), to a novel smallpox vaccination, these benzopyran derivatives compromise ...
    • Total Synthesis of a Lactam Glycosidase Inhibitor Precursor 

      Eliasen, Anders (2008-01-01)
      A total synthesis of an α,β-unsaturated γ-lactam is presented. This heterocycle is a precursor to a glycosidase inhibitor. Glycosidases function in the breakage of complex carbohydrates, yielding smaller ...
