Reaction successful with yield of 39 mg/43%

Repeat of AT 6-4 with the original time of 6 hours to compare yield/purity with shorter times. 

Reaction scheme


AEW 99-1 (0.100 g, 0.4 mmol), isopropanol (3 mL) and ammonia (6 mL) were added to a sealed tube, stirred and heated at 120 °C for 6 hours. The solvent was removed under vacuum. The crude product was purified by flash column chromatography over silica (96:3.5:0.5 to 95:4.5:0.5 DCM/MeOH/NH3) to yield the product as a yellow solid (39 mg, 1.7 mmol, 42% ).

Start time: 9:50 am

Note: lower MeOH % than previous attempts (3.5% vs 4.5%) as products always eluted with overlap. However, still some overlap between fractions (see TLC data). 



TLC of crude (P), co-spotted with product from CT 3-1 (R). Solvent 95:4.5:0.5 DCM/MeOH/NH3. Appears to have 2 major products, confirmed by 1H NMR below.

TLC of column fractions. Still some overlap between the two major fractions (fraction 12) despite lower MeOH.

Some fractions co-spotted with CT 3-1 as a reference (R) to check whether it is the desired product.  Fractions 13-18 were combined and dried. Fractions 8-11 were also combined for potential further analysis. 


1H NMR of crude product. Two products, appear to be the same as CT 3-2 (desired product and possibly the -OH product) and no starting material.

1H NMR of second fraction. Consistent with desired product, though small trace of other impurities.
