Application

Pyrrolidine has been used for the synthesis of N-benzoyl pyrrolidine from benzaldehyde via oxidative amination. It may be used as a catalyst for the synthesis of N-sulfinyl aldimines from carbonyl compounds and sulfonamides.
Pyrrolidine can also be used to synthesize:
  • Taddol-pyrrolidine phosphoramidite, a ligand for rhodium-catalyzed [2+2+2] cycloaddition of pentenyl isocyanate and 4- ethynylanisole.
  • H,4 PyrrolidineQuin-BAM (′PBAM′), a selective catalyst for the aza-Henry addition of nitroalkanes to aryl aldimines.{88]
  • 1,2,3,3a,4,9-Hexahydropyrrolo[2,1-b]quinazoline by reacting with o-aminobenzaldehyde.

We have investigated the effect of regiospecifically introducing substituents in the P2 part of the typical dipeptide derived basic structure of PREP inhibitors. This hitherto unexplored modification type can be used to improve target affinity, selectivity, and physicochemical parameters in...
