1,3-diazole Ring (including Hydrogenated) Patents (Class 544/370)
  • Patent number: 10329279
    Abstract: This invention provides a method for enantioselective synthesis of cis-imidazolines and related structures through chiral resolution. A chiral acid is used to separate enantiomeric precursors of the cis-imidazolines from a racemic mixture by selective crystallization. Both enantiomers can be cyclized into the desired cis-imidazoline by complementary pathways. Compounds can be synthesized according to the invention with an enantiomeric excess as high as 99%. Cis-imidazolines such as Nutlin-3a prepared according to this invention may be used for treating cancer, killing senescent cells, or treating senescence-associated conditions.
