Planes of Existence
As shown in this diagram, planes of existence should not, as they commonly are, be thought of as discreet states but rather as a continuous scale. As we distinguish between body, mind and soul, we must equally distinguish between physical, mental, and...

The Necronomicon
There are those who believe in this grimoire, in its existence and in its potency, and there are those who do not. Those who believe say that this grimoire, originally named Al Azif, and written by Abdul Alhazred around 700 AD, contains the rituals that, if...

There are fragments of the 'Atlantis' legend in almost every culture around the world. This suggests, but does not prove, that the legend is based on a very ancient truth that was known by the forebears of each of these cultures. Our main source of...

Human Evolution
The first hominids evolved some 3 or 4 million years ago, and so we have only limited means of determining how they evolved. Although human evolution is an important phase of the history of religion, the evolution of humans in itself is more a matter of...

Astronomy in Ancient Civilisations
It is a pity that the myths of ancient civilisations are so easily dismissed as the musings of savage minds, as it is subsequently easy to overlook the fact that many of their myths were encryptions of their astronomical knowledge. The best example of this...

The Jesus Double-Act
Is it possible that there were two Jesus', and that the histories of both have become entwined in the modern Bible? An examination of the evidence suggests that this is not only possible, but highly probable. To begin with, let us look at the Gospels....

In recent years, a variety of catalytic methods for promoting the Biginelli reaction have been developed employing various metal salts as Lewis acid catalysts including LiBr 8, NiCl2.6H2O and FeCl3.6H2O 9, CuCl2.
In this particular case the rearrangement was catalyzed by PdCl2(PPh3)4 as a Lewis acid. Final desilylations of 20b and 20c using TBAF led to target 6-hetaryl-7-deazapurine arabinonucleosides 21b and 21c in 72 and 77% yields, respectively.
