  • Patent number: 9174989
    Abstract: The disclosure encompasses a novel process for making piperidinone carboxamide indane and azainane derivatives, having less steps and improved yields as compared to previous synthetic methods for making these compounds, which are CGRP receptor antagonists, useful for the treatment of migraine. Conditions for an amide bond formation between an acid and amine include for example reacting the compounds of Formulae B (after salt break) and C with an amide coupling reagent and optionally an additive and an acid and/or a base in a non-reactive solvent.
