Design and Synthesis of Amine Building Blocks and Protease Inhibitors
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Organic Chemistry2008 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
The first part of this thesis addresses the design and synthesis of amine building blocks accomplished by applying two different synthetic procedures, both of which were developed using solid-phase chemistry. Chapter 1 presents the first of these methods, entailing a practical solid-phase parallel synthesis route to N-monoalkylated aminopiperidines and aminopyrrolidines achieved by selective reductive alkylation of primary and/or secondary amines. Solid-phase NMR spectroscopy was used to monitor the reactions for which a new pulse sequence was developed. The second method, reported in Chapter 2, involves a novel approach to the synthesis of secondary amines starting from reactive alkyl halides and azides. The convenient solid-phase protocol that was devised made use of the Staudinger reaction in order to accomplish highly efficient alkylations of N-alkyl phosphimines or N-aryl phosphimines with reactive alkyl halides.
The second part of the thesis describes the design and synthesis of three classes of protease inhibitors targeting the cysteine proteases cathepsins S and K, and the serine protease hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease. Chapter 4 covers the design, solid-phase synthesis, and structure-activity relationships of 4-amidofurane-3-one P1-containing inhibitors of cathepsin S and the effects of P3 sulfonamide groups on the potency and selectivity towards related cathepsin proteases. This work resulted in the discovery of highly potent and selective inhibitors of cathepsin S. Two parallel solid-phase approaches to the synthesis of a series of aminoethylamide inhibitors of cathepsin K are presented in Chapter 5. Finally, Chapter 6 reports peptide-based HCV NS3 protease inhibitors containing a non-electrophilic allylic alcohol moiety as P1 group and also outlines efforts to incorporate this new template into low-molecular-weight drug-like molecules.
