Abstract :

Dielsâ??Alder reactions are particularly useful for the total synthesis of pharmacologically active compounds and natural products. Not only does this strategy construct two new Câ??C Ï?-bonds in one step, but it also forms a cyclohexene system with good regioand stereo-selectivity up to four contiguous stereocenters. Using heteroatom-substituted electron-rich dienes, such as Danishefskyâ??s diene, usually promotes the normal electron-demand Dielsâ??Alder reactions in highly regioselective fashion. Tamiflu, the phosphate salt of oseltamivir, is a popular anti-influenza drug in clinical use. Dielsâ??Alder reactions using 1,3-butadiene, 1-timethylsilyoxy-1,3- butadiene, furan, N-Boc-pyrrole and 1-Cbz-1,2-dihydropyridine have been successfully applied to react with appropriate dienophiles for construction of the cyclohexene core structure of oseltamivir. We synthesized a novel diene precursor bearing both 3-pentoxy and ester groups. Dimerization of this diene was overcome by trapping it in situ using activated alkenes as the dienophiles. Inspired by Shibasakiâ??s work, we successfully synthesized a racemic mixture of oseltamivir via a sequence of reactions that comprise acyl azide formation and Curtius rearrangement. The synthesis of optically active oseltamivir via asymmetric Dielsâ??Alder reaction is currently under investigation.
