  • Patent number: 8791287
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is a new process for the synthesis of tapentadol, both as free base and in hydrochloride form, which comprises the step of alkylation of the ketone (VII) to yield the compound (VIII), as reported in Diagram 1, with high stereoselectivity due to the presence of the benzyl group as substituent of the amino group. It was surprisingly found that this substitution shifts the keto-enol equilibrium towards the desired enantiomer and amplifies the capacity of the stereocenter present in the compound (VII) to orient the nucleophilic addition of the organometallic compound at the carbonyl towards the desired stereoisomer. This substitution thus allows obtaining a considerable increase of the yields in this step, and consequently allows significantly increasing the overall yield of the entire tapentadol synthesis process. A further object of the present invention is constituted by the tapentadol free base in solid form, obtainable by means of the process of the invention.

  • Patent number: 8692013
    Abstract: A process for making bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalates useful as antiplasticizers for thermoplastic polyesters is disclosed. Dimethyl terephthalate is reacted with an excess of an aryloxyalkanol in the presence of a condensation catalyst to produce an intermediate mixture comprising a bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate, a mono(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate, and unreacted aryloxyalkanol. This mixture continues to react at reduced pressure while unreacted aryloxyalkanol is removed and the mono-ester content is reduced to less than 1 mole % based on the combined amounts of mono- and bis-esters. Both steps are performed substantially in the absence of oxygen. Additional unreacted aryloxyalkanol is then removed to provide a purified bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate having an overall purity of at least 98 mole % and a yellowness index less than 10.
