    Procedure:
    rac-Praziquanamine (101 mg, 500 µmol) and (+)-di-p-anisoyl-D-tartaric acid (214 mg, 0.5 mmol) was dissolved in a mixture of isopropanol (2.0 mL) and water (0.4 mL) by heating. The pale yellow solution was allowed to cool to room temperature and stand for 40 h.
    The solution was removed with a pipette and the remaining solid was dried in a gentle stream of nitrogen.

  • Yield: 134 mg (43%) of a colorless amorphous solid
    - solid is sparingly soluble in water and MeOH, good soluble in 2 N NaOH
    - 11.3 mg used for recrystallisation in MeOH, solid couldn't be completely solved in MeOH (2 mL). Small crystals obtained when mixture cooled to room temperature.

    Liberation of the salt with 2 N NaOH, extraction of the aq. layer with DCM (3 x 5 mL), concentrated.
    Yield: 25 mg (124 µmol, 25%) PZQamine as a colorless solid
  • Data: 1H NMR MW47-1 ((-)-PZQamine liberated from the salt)
    [a]D20 = -244° (c=1, DCM)

  • Mother liquor concentrated, solid liberated with 2 N NaOH (see above)
    Yield: 30 mg (30%) yellow oil
  • [a]D20 = +160° (c=1.30, DCM)
