A search in Scifinder was conducted for reaction conditions for the below generic schemes. The purpose of this was to find conditions to conduct a model experiment to create the ether linkage on 2,6-dichloropyrazine before attempting the same reaction with the triazolopyrazine, which we only have in very low yields.

A search for each scheme was performed using the reaction structure search and ticking the ‘substructure’ box. The reactions were filtered by:

  • Yields of 70-100%
  • Journals in English
  • Must have an available experimental procedure.

Promising experiments/conditions for pyrazines:

1. 10.1021/np200386c

Yield of 94%

2. 10.1021/jm061247v

Yield of 83%

Promising experiments/conditions for pyridines:

3. 10.1021/jo800866w

There are several options for the alcohol here, each with different yields.

4. 10.1021/jo901707x


90% where Ar = 2-MeO-C6H4 and R = H

92% where Ar = 4-MeO-C6H4 and R = H

96% where Ar = C6H5 and R = Me

75% where Ar = 4-CF3-C6H4 and R = H

93% where Ar = 4-Cl-C6H4 and R = H


5. 10.1021/jo0602773

Yield of 95%

I will start by trying the reaction from reference 4, but using 2,6-dichloropyrazine instead of the 2-chloropyradine as it is closer to the triazolopyrazine. I will also use phenethyl alcohol (HO(CH2)2C6H5) as this is closest to the ether I will eventually use to link to the triazolopyrazine. I will also attempt this reaction using 2,6-dichloropyrazine and the 4-MeO-C6H4 alcohol listed above as a comparison. Next week I will try the reactions from references 1 and 2 as their reaction times are longer than what I can achieve this afternoon.
