A Suzuki cross-coupling reaction procedure was developed to prepare 8-substituted 3,7-dihydropurine-2,6-dione (xanthine) derivatives. 8-Halogen-substituted xanthines were reacted with phenyl- and styrylboronic acids. The best results were obtained using tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0) and tripotassium phosphate in dimethylformamide. The developed procedure allows for a convergent synthesis of pharmacologically active 8-substituted xanthine derivatives.
