The novel GABA adamantane derivative (AdGABA): design, synthesis, and activity relationship with gabapentin.

Abstract

A facile preparation of 2-aminomethyl-2-tricyclo[3.3.1.1(1,7)]decaneacetic acid hydrochloride 5 (AdGABA) is described. The synthesis of AdGABA involves the hydrogenation of 2-cyano-2-tricyclo[3.3.1.1(1,7)]decaneacetic acid 11, which was synthesized by two different synthetic routes. AdGABA was found to antagonize the pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) and… (More)
