Bromination of MJT 14-1. This is an effort towards synthesising aminothienopyrimidine analogues discussed in the May 2013 Open Consultation. *** Reaction proceeded to give product in 45 % yield, some of which was taken forward in suzuki coupling with MNR 103-1 to give MJT 18-1, a target compound. This is a novel compound; data to be collected:IR, LRMS, HRMS Procedure  MJT 14-1 (0.360 g, 1.61 mmol, 1.0 equiv.) was dissolved in THF (32 mL) under an atmosphere of argon and cooled to -78 °C over ten minutes. To the stirring solution was added n-BuLi (2.5 M in hexane, 1.0 mL, 2.4 mmol, 1.5 equiv.) and the stirring was continued for 30 minutes to give a yellow solution. Bromine (0.2 mL, 3.2 mmol, 2.0 equiv.) was added dropwise and the reaction mixture was allowed to reach room temperature and was stirred for 2 hours, it is now an orange solution. TLC shows some SM remains and several new products have formed. To the reaction saturated sodium thiosulfate solution on ice (75 mL) was added and extracted with ethyl acetate (3 x 40 mL). The combined organic extracts were washed with brine and dried over MgSO4. After concentration crude product was obtained as a brown sludge (0.113 g, 0.37 mmol, 23%). NMR analysis indicated that this extraction isolated a dimer of the desired product and was contaminated with grease. A TLC of the aqueous wash showed it still contained SM and / or products; it had a pH of 4 and so it was basified with sodium hydrogen carbonate to pH 10 before a further extraction using ethyl acetate (3 x 40 mL), brine wash and drying over MgSO4 to give crude product / SM (0.29 g, 0.96 mmol, 60 %; total yield now 83 %) as a yellow oil. TLC showed aqueous washings no longer contained SM or product. NMR analysis of this second crude extract shows that it consists mainly of the desired product, with a small amount of SM. This second extraction was purified by column chromatography (10% MeOH in DCM, 40-60 micron silica particles) to give three fractions. In order of elution these were: one fraction as a white solid (0.020 g) shown to be byproduct by NMR, one with a single spot by TLC as a white solid (0.088 g, 0.29 mmol, 18 %) which NMR showed was pure and one with two spots by TLC as a light brown solid (0.129 g, 4.27 mmol, 27 %), again fairly clean by NMR. Both of the later fractions will be taken forward in suzuki couplings.
