Hexahydro-2H-thieno[2,3-c]pyrrole is proposed as a low molecular weight polar scaffold to construct compound libraries used in the search for new drugs. Practical syntheses of derivatives of this bicyclic scaffold were developed, based on [3 + 2] cycloaddition of the ylide generated from N-benzyl-1-methoxy-N-((trimethylsilyl)methyl)methanamine and(More)
An approach to the synthesis of 1-alkyl-5-((di)alkylamino)tetrazoles by nucleophilic substitution in 1-alkyl-5-sulfonyltetrazoles with anions generated from the primary or secondary amines was developed. Tolerance of the method to the presence of some functional groups (i.e., protected amine) in both components of the reaction was demonstrated. Obtained(More)
Cyclobutane diamines (i.e., cis- and trans-1,3-diaminocyclobutane, 6-amino-3-azaspiro[3.3]heptane, and 3,6-diaminospiro[3.3]heptane) are considered as promising sterically constrained diamine building blocks for drug discovery. An approach to the syntheses of their Boc-monoprotected derivatives has been developed aimed at the preparation of multigram(More)
A general approach to 3-fluoro-, 3-chloro-, and 3-bromoquinolines which relies on organosilane-promoted Friedländer reaction of α-haloketones is described. The scope of the methylene component as well as influence of the organosilane component on the outcome of the reaction is studied. The method can be used under parallel synthesis conditions.
The first aminocatalyzed α-alkylation of α-branched aldehydes with benzyl bromides as alkylating agents has been developed. Using a sterically demanding proline derived catalyst, racemic α-branched aldehydes are reacted with alkylating agents in a DYKAT process to give the corresponding α-alkylated aldehydes with quaternary stereogenic centers in good(More)
A library of fused pyridine-4-carboxylic acids (including pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridines, isoxazolo[5,4-b]pyridines, furo[2,3-b]pyridines, thieno[2,3-b]pyridines, and pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines) was generated by Combes-type reaction of acyl pyruvates and electron-rich amino heterocycles followed by hydrolysis of the ester. The library members were also demonstrated(More)
The synthesis of all stereoisomers of spiro[3.3]heptane-1,6-diamines suitably protected for use as building blocks in drug discovery is reported. Structural analysis revealed the similarity between the spiro[3.3]heptane and cyclohexane scaffolds. Comparison of the distance between functional groups and their spatial orientation proved that (1S,4r,6R)- and(More)
The conformational behaviour of model peptides containing a 2-pyrrolidinemethanesulfonic acid (2PyMS) residue was studied in both the crystalline state and in solution using X-ray, NMR and IR experiments. It was found that in crystals dipeptide PhC(O)-2PyMS-Phe-NHiPr adopted β-turn conformation, which was not stabilized by an intramolecular hydrogen bond(More)
An efficient two-step multigram synthesis of the previously unknown 3-benzyl-3-azabicyclo[3.1.1]heptan-6-one is described. The compound is shown to be a promising building block for further selective derivatization of the cyclobutane ring providing novel conformationally restricted piperidine derivatives.
