#OrganicLetters: WuXi AppTec Developed Novel Photoredox-Mediated Decarboxylative Coupling between α‑Amino Acids and DNA-Conjugated Carbonyls
Recently, WuXi AppTec HitS Unit has reported a DNA-compatible photoredox decarboxylative coupling reaction between α-amino acids and carbonyl compounds for the efficient synthesis of DNA-conjugated sp3-rich 1,2-amino alcohols. The reaction proceeds efficiently for a wide range of DNA-conjugated aldehydes and ketones under mild conditions, and provides the desired 1,2-amino alcohols with high conversions, enjoys huge potential and broad prospect in the DNA-encoded library production. Also, qPCR and sequencing data analysis indicates no significant DNA damage upon photoredox decarboxylative coupling reaction.
