Stereoselective synthesis of diamines
Also involved: Dr. A. Gualandi, L. Cerisoli
Bis-homoallylic-1,2-diamines can be transformed in different bicyclic compounds exploiting the activation of the alkene double bond(s) by suitable electrofiles. For example, the iodine-mediated cyclization of differently substituted, optically pure 4,5-diamino-1,7-octadienes leads to substituted 2,5-diaza[2.2.1]diazabicyclooctanes. Electrophile-mediated cyclizations of optically pure 1,2-diaminocyclohex-4-ene are currently being investigated as a route to 2-amino-7-azabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane with potential pharmacological activity.
