Herein we describe the γ-amino hydroxide Grob fragmentation of the aza-bicyclo[2.2.2]octene 1 using triflic anhydride as the activating agent. The resulting dihydropyridinium ion can react with a wide variety of Grignard reagents, giving access to 2,3,6-trisubstituted tetrahydropyridines (2) with high regio- and stereoselectivities. This methodology has(More)
The four stereoisomers of 1-amino-2-fluoro-2-(phosphonomethyl)cyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (FAP4) were synthesized via diastereoselective Rh(II)-catalysed cyclopropanation of a phosphonylated fluoroalkene. Different isomers of FAP4 and the corresponding non-fluorinated analogs showed a similar pharmacological profile against the isoforms of metabotropic(More)
Positron emission tomography has emerged as the leading method for medical imaging with fluorine-18 as the most widely used radioactive isotope. Here we report a semi-automated method for the preparation of valuable [(18) F]trifluoromethylcopper, as well as its use for the radiosynthesis of [(18) F]trifluoromethylarenes and heteroarenes. Mild conditions of(More)
Synthesis of fluorocyclopropyl building blocks, which constitute the core of various therapeutic agents against the hepatitis C virus, is described. The relevant methyl α-amino-β-fluoro-β-vinylcyclopropanecarboxylate has been used as a key intermediate for the total synthesis of a fluorinated analogue of Simeprevir (TMC 435), a HCV NS3/4A protease inhibitor.
An efficient access to highly functionalized monofluorocyclopropanes is described. The developed methodology allowed straightforward access to a large panel of polysubstituted fluorinated cyclopropanes in good to excellent yields and good diastereoselectivities. The Rh-catalyzed cyclopropanation proved to be efficient on several fluorinated olefins and(More)
We report herein the first general access to fluorinated homoallylic amines by means of an addition of fluorinated organoindium reagent. The corresponding amines were obtained in good to excellent yield with excellent diastereoisomeric ratio. A plausible mechanism is proposed to explain the stereochemical outcome of the reaction based on the X-ray structure(More)
Herein we describe the diastereoselective synthesis of glutamic acid analogs and the evaluation of their agonist activity towards metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 4 (mGluR4). These analogs are based on a monofluorinated cyclopropane core substituted with an α-aminoacid function. The potential of this new building block as a tool for the development(More)
A efficient methodology allowing the one-pot stereoselective synthesis of alpha-fluoroacrylates, based on the addition of ethyl dibromofluoroacetate to a carbonyl derivative using diethylzinc as organometallic mediator, is described. Two different pathways have been identified depending on the involved carbonyl partner. In the case of aldehydes, an E2-type(More)
The Grob fragmentation of azabicyclo[2.2.2]octene leads to a dihydropyridinium intermediate. This highly reactive species reacts with a variety of organocuprates and other soft nucleophiles in a regioselective manner, allowing for the rapid and stereoselective synthesis of 2,3,4-trisubstituted 1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyridines. The resulting products were either(More)
