Syntheses of some tri- and tetracyclic heterocycles containing an indole moiety
Södertörn University, School of Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Environmental Science. Karolinska Institutet.
2004 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This thesis deals with the development of new synthetic methods leading to fused tri- and tetracyclic heterocycles, many of which have interesting biological activity such as antiviral and DNA intercalating properties. The reactions between isatins and 2-aminobenzylamine in acetic acid can give, depending on the conditions, either complex spirooxindoles or indolo[3,2-c]quinolin-6-ones. Proposed mechanisms are presented (involving a simpler form of spirooxindoles). These spirooxindoles can easily be obtained from isatins and 2-aminobenzylamine in methanol (Paper I). The previously unknown, but incorrectly claimed, linear isomer of indolo[3,2-c]quinolin-6one, i.e. indolo[2,3-b]quinolin-11-one, has been prepared for the first time by thermal (260 degrees C) cyclization of methyl 2 -phenylamino-indole-3 -carboxylate, which was in turn prepared in two steps from methyl indole-3 -carboxylate. The benzothiopyrano[2,3-b]indol-11-one and benzopyrano[2,3-b]indol-11-one could be prepared similarly (Papers I and II). Suitable 2-chloro-3-formylindoles have been used for the preparation of the alkaloids neocryptolepine, thienodolin and derivatives thereof (Papers III and IV). Finally, synthetic work towards potential metabolites of the lead compound B-220 is presented. We have described a method for reduction of the biologically interesting indolo[2,3b)quinoxalines with zinc, which are subsequently trapped with an appropriate anhydride to provide the corresponding mono or diacylated 5,1 1-dihydroindolo[2,3b]quinoxalines in good yields (paper V). Synthesis of hydroxy derivatives of B-220 can be effected from the appropriate methoxyisatins. Futher derivatives like the vinyl-, Nmethylaminoethyl- and Noxido derivatives of B-220 have also been synthesised.

Abstract [en]

We report a total synthesis of the alkaloid thienodolin (1a), as well as its 5-chloro isomer 1b and its unsubstituted analogue 1c, in three steps from the corresponding oxindoles Ba-c. The preparation was achieved through an initial Vilsmeier-Haack-Arnold reaction (chloro-formylation) followed by protection at the indole nitrogen, creation of the fused thiophene ring by nucleophilic substitution at the 2-position and an intramolecular cyclization using mercaptoacetamide. This gave 1a, 1b and 1c in total yields of 42%, 35% and 37%, respectively.

Abstract [en]

Reduction of indolo[2,3-b]quinoxalines with zinc in the presence of an anhydride gave N,N-diacyl trapped 6,11-dihydroindolo[2,3-b]quinoxalines in 43-92% yields. When the reduction with zinc was performed in TFA/TFAA, an unexpected ring opened product was isolated in 49% yield. The structure of this product could be identified as 1,2-dihydro-1-trifluoroacetyl-3-[(2-trifluoroacetylamino)phenyl]quinoxal ine.
