Stereoselective synthesis of novel adamantane derivatives with high potency against rimantadine-resistant influenza A virus strains.

A series of (R)- and (S)-isomers of new adamantane-substituted heterocycles (1,3-oxazinan-2-one, piperidine-2,4-dione, piperidine-2-one and piperidine) with potent activity against rimantadine-resistant strains of influenza A virus were synthesized through the transformation of adamantyl-substituted N-Boc-homoallylamines 8 into piperidine-2,4-diones 11… (More)
