Diverse synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of various isoquinolinic alkaloids

27.09.2005


This research work developed a number of synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of various isoquinolinic alkaloids. They all have in common the use of b-aminoalcohols as the source of chirality operating as auxiliaries or as chiral blocks.



Thus, the employment of (S,S)-(+)-pseudoephedrine as chiral auxiliary enables access to enriched enantiomeric arylglycines, precursors of 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines, by means of a synthetic methodology applicable to the stereocontrolled synthesis of such derivatives with a substitution in the 7,8 positions of the aromatic ring of the isoquinolinic nucleus. Also, the aminoalcohol, (S)-(+)- phenylglycinol, has proved to be an efficient chiral building block for access to 1,2-diarylethylamines which, by means of cyclation, lead to optically active 6,7-disubstituted 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines.

The convenient manipulation of the synthesised 3-aryltetrahydroisoquinolinic derivatives enabled obtaining a series of chiral berbines, amongst others, (R)-tetrahydropalmatine, (R)-synactine and (S)-xylopinine with high enantiomeric excesses.


Finally, the total synthesis was undertaken of natural aporphinic alkaloid (S)-glaucine employing aminoalcohol (S)-(+)-phenylglycinol as a chiral precursor that helped in the obtention of (S)-laudanosine, on which a process of oxidative coupling was carried out.

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
