Untersuchungen zur regio- und chemoselektiven Funktionalisierung von Gossypol

Universität Rostock, 2019

Abstract: Gossypol is a natural compound occuring in cotton seeds up to an amount of 1.3 %. Due to its 2,2’-binaphthol structure and axial chirality, it is very interesting for ligand synthesis or the complexation with metals. In addition to these useful 1,1’-hydroxy groups, the molecule possesses further oxygen-containing functional groups. Aim of this work was to investigate this natural compound regarding its regio- and chemoselective functionalization to assess its suitability for ligand synthesis.
