The synthesis of optically active substituted piperidines has been achieved by using four different methodologies. The first one is an intramolecular nucleophilic displacement of activated alcohol moieties that was used to build up the piperidine ring of (-)-prosophylline and (-)-slaframine, and the second one is a ring-closing metathesis of unsaturated… (More)
Carrots (Daucus carota) were used to reduce cyclic amino-ketones in high yields and enantiomeric excesses. This cheap, eco-compatible, and efficient reducing reagent allows the easy access to precursors of biologically active products.
[reaction: see text] N,N-Dialkyl-beta-amino alcohols derived from alpha-amino acids can be rearranged enantiospecifically by using TFAA/Et3N/NaOH to give 1,2-amino alcohols with enantiomeric excess up to 99%.
Cdc25B protein phosphatase represents an attractive potential therapeutic target for small molecule intervention because of its central role in positively regulating cyclin dependent kinases and thus cell proliferation, as well as its elevated levels observed in many human tumors. Among the most potent previously identified Cdc25 inhibitors have been… (More)
Highly enantioselective rearrangement of beta-amino alcohols was realized by using a catalytic amount of trifluoroacetic anhydride.
An enantioselective synthesis of the piperidine alkaloids (+)-sedamine and (-)-prosophylline is reported. The synthesis of (+)-sedamine has been achieved in 12 steps with an overall yield of 20% from benzaldehyde, and (-)-prosophylline was obtained in 15 steps with an overall yield of 9.2%, starting from D-glyceraldehyde acetonide 14. The key steps are… (More)
Argatroban was synthesized in seven steps from 4-methylpiperidine. The condensation of (+/-)-trans-benzyl 4-methylpipecolic acid ester with N(alpha)-Boc-N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine led to two diastereomers that were separated. One of them is the precursor of argatroban.
The reduction of 2-alkyl-1,3-diketones using (R,R)- or (S,S)-RuCl[N-(tosyl)-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine](p-cymene) in the presence of formic acid and triethylamine affords syn-2-alkyl-3-hydroxy ketones as the major products with high enantioselectivity. [reaction: see text]
SSR 241586 is a 2,2-disubstituted morpholine, developed by Sanofi-Aventis, which is active in the treatment of schizophrenia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Different strategies have been studied to synthesize this molecule and among the strategies an organo-catalyzed Henry reaction, applied to an α-keto ester, has produced SSR 241586 in excellent… (More)
