A concise synthesis of a very late antigen-4 antagonist trans-4-[1-[[2,5-dichloro-4-(1-methyl-3-indolylcarboxyamide)phenyl]acetyl]-(4S)-methoxy-(2S)-pyrrolidinylmethoxy]cyclohexanecarboxylic acid via reductive etherification.

Abstract

This contribution describes a concise synthesis to ethyl trans-[(4S)-methoxy-(2S)-pyrrolidinylmethoxy]cyclohexanecarboxylate (2b) as a key intermediate of very late antigen-4 (VLA-4) antagonist trans-4-[1-[[2,5-dichloro-4-(1-methyl-3-indolylcarboxyamide)phenyl]acetyl]-(4S)-methoxy-(2S)-pyrrolidinylmethoxy]cyclohexanecarboxylic acid (1). The synthesis employs a reductive etherification as a key reaction using (2S,4S)-1-benzyloxycarbonyl-4-methoxypyrrolidine-2-carboxyaldehyde (12) and trans-4-triethylsilyloxycyclohexanecarboxilic acid ethyl ester (13b). This synthesis provides 2b in 6 steps with 38% overall yield from commercially available starting material.
