Target synthesised in 39% yield. Requires 13C, 19F


Synthesis of the amide analogue of TCMDC-123812 by coupling of glycinamide and preformed acid chloride PMY 32-2.

Reaction Scheme

Reaction start time: 18.00 02/02/12
Glycinamide.HCl (51 mg, 0.51 mmol, 1.2 equiv.) and DIPEA (0.11 mL, 0.89 mmol, 2.3 equiv.) in dry DMF (6 mL). Incomplete solution (even on heating). PMY 32-2 (90 mg, 0.39 mmol, 1 equiv.) was dissolved in dry THF (4 mL) and added to the Glycinamide suspension. Reaction heated to 80 °C. After overnight heating, reaction was cooled to room temperature. After standing over the weekend, the mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure. The residue was purified by chromatography (50-100% EtOAc/hexane then 0-20% MeOH/DCM) to obtain a clear yellow oil (162 mg, 145% of theory!). 1H NMR shows residual DIPEA (salt?) and expected product. After drying under high vacuum overnight, mass still greater than theory (134 mg). White powder dissolved in 10% NaHCO3 (10 mL) and DCM (10 mL, yellow solution) some insoluble powder. Separated and the organic washed with water (3 × 10 mL), brine and dried (MgSO4) and concentrated under reduced pressure to a white powder (44 mg, 39%). Mpt 193-195 °C.
