Limited Capacity seats available

The development of a practical and efficient synthesis of an investigational drug candidate will be described.  A Vilsmeier-Haak quinolinone synthesis was first developed to support the initial multi-kilo manufactures.  Alternative chemistry based on a highly selective Friedlander cyclization was later discovered to provide efficient access to the key quinolinone intermediate. Development of subsequent transformations to access the target molecule including development of a  challenging Negishi coupling and selective oxime hydrogenation will also be described.  The process development ultimately provided access to the non-racemic drug candidate in 5-step chiral process with a 47% overall yield
