Synthesis and opioid activity of enantiomeric N-substituted 2,3,4,4a,5,6,7,7a-octahydro-1H-benzofuro[3,2-e]isoquinolines.


A series of enantiomeric N-substituted 2,3,4,4a,5,6,7,7a-octahydro-1H-benzofuro[3,2-e]isoquinolines was synthesized. The (-)-enantiomers had much greater kappa-, mu-, and delta-opioid receptor binding affinity than the corresponding (+)-enantiomers. Compounds (-)-1a, (-)-1b, and (-)-1c displayed subnanomolar binding affinity for the mu-receptor, and (-)-1b… (More)
