Anticancer Molecule

Anticancer Molecule

A team of Yale chemists has successfully synthesized eight unique anticancer molecules found in bryozoans, a discovery made nearly 30 years ago. These molecules, characterized by intricate structures with dense arrangements of oxidized rings and nitrogen atoms, have long posed a challenge to synthetic chemistry. Led by Seth Herzon, the team utilized innovative chemical strategies and cutting-edge technology, such as MicroED analysis, to achieve this feat. By deferring the construction of reactive heterocyclic rings and employing oxidative photocyclizations, they overcame previous obstacles. These synthetic compounds hold promise for future medication development, marking a significant advancement in the field of synthetic chemistry and cancer research.
