A Convenient Approach to the Synthesis of Furo- and Thieno-[3,2-c]pyridine Derivatives

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Fukuoka University, 8-19-1 Nanakuma, Jonan-ku, Fukuoka 814-0180, Japan


The title compounds were prepared from 4,5-dihydro-3-furan- and -3-thiophene-carbonitriles having an active methylene group at C-2 position 1, 2, 7, and 8 as key starting materials. Compounds 1 and 2 condensed with N,N-dimethylformamide dimethyl acetal to give the corresponding enamines 3 and 4. This condensation was followed by exchange reaction of amines and subsequent intramolecular cyclization reaction in the presence of ammonium acetate to lead the corresponding furo- and thieno-[3,2-c]pyridines 5 and 6. On the other hand, the reactions of compounds 7 and 8 with amines such as aqueous ammonium hydroxide and benzylamine afforded the intermediate acetamide derivatives A, without isolation of them, which underwent intramolecular cyclization reaction in the presence of sodium methoxide to yield the corresponding furo- and thieno-[3,2-c]pyridin-6(2H)-ones 912.

A convenient method was developed to synthesize optically pure 8-methoxy-2-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (2a) and 2-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetra-hydroquinoline (2b) by combining the methods of catalytic hydrogenation and classical resolution. The catalytic system ([Ru(p-cymene)Cl2]2/I2) showed high efficiency in preparing racemic 2a and 2b, which were successfully resolved using commercial tartaric acid derivatives, and both enantiomers were obtained in moderate yield with >99% ee.

6-Alkynyl-7-benzylpurines were prepared by the Sonogashira reaction from 6-chloro-7-benzylpurines and terminal alkynes. The prepared alkynylpurines were cyclotrimerized with various 1,6-diynes in the presence of Ni(cod)2/2PPh3 catalytic system into the corresponding 6-aryl-7-benzylpurines under ambient conditions. The prepared 6-alkynyl- and 6-aryl-7-benzylpurines were tested for cytostatic activity.

Simple Deuterium Introduction at α-Position of Carbonyl in Diazirinyl Derivatives for Photoaffinity Labeling

Post-functional deuterium incorporation into diazirinyl acetophenone derivatives is reported. Treatment of the compounds with sodium hydroxide in CH3OD at rt for 10 min achieved deuterium incorporation at α-position of the carbonyl group without decomposition of diazirinyl ring. Further deuterium can introduce by reduction of benzyl carbonyl with triethylsilane-d-TFA. Straightforward deuterium introduction into diazirinyl derivatives may contribute to the functional analysis of low molecular compounds with diazirine-based photoaffinity labeling.
