An Efficient and Convenient Synthesis of Acyl CoA: Monoacylglycerol Acyltransferase 2 Inhibitor, 2-[2-(4-tert-Butylphenyl)ethyl]-N-[4-(3-cyclopentylpropyl)-2-fluorophenyl]-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline-6-sulfonamide

An efficient and convenient synthesis of MGAT2 inhibitor, 2-[2-(4-tert-butylphenyl)ethyl]-N-[4-(3-cyclopentylpropyl)-2-fluorophenyl]-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline-6-sulfonamide (1), is reported. The optimized route consists of an effective chlorosulfonylation and debromination, resulting in an increase in the total yield from 6.8% to 45%, compared with our previous method. This synthetic approach enabled the synthesis of 1 to be scaled-up to a multi-gram scale.
