Repeat of MNR41-15 but leaving out the PZQ.


To a solution of MNR42-1 (0.1 g, 0.32 mmol) in HPLC grade acetonitrile (10 mL) and under argon at 0 °C, was added was added acetyl chloride (0.041 mL, 0.57 mmol), 2,6-lutidine (0.052 mL, 0.48 mmol, fresh out of a new bottle). The reaction was then shaken at room temperature (19 °C) for 1 hour.

After 75 minutes a sample was taken for mini workup and LCMS. The reaction was left to shake.

After 1 hour a sample was taken for mini workup and LCMS. The reaction was left to stir for another hour and then worked up.

Work Up

The mixture was filtered to remove the molecular sieves and washed with EtOAc (20 mL). The filtrate was washed with saturated sodium bicarbonate solution (25 mL). The aqueous layer was extracted with ethyl acetate (3 × 30 mL). The organic fractions were combined, dried over MgSO4, filtered and concentrated under reduced pressure to yield a yellow solid (0.127 g)

It was then attempted to take the crude up in IPA (3 ml) but it would not go into solution - possibly starting material??

The majority of the IPA was decanted off via pipette and transferred to a vial to see if anything would crystallise overnight. Washed with IPA in the morning

crystals from the decanted solvent - 0.56 g
crystals from the remaining solvent - 0.28 g






Both samples showed clean product.


Total recovered after 1 recrystallisation - 0.084 g, 0.236 mmol, 74%.

Product forming after 90 minutes, the reaction is therefore not affected by the ytterbium, molecular sieves or the PZQ.
