Bioorg Med Chem. 2001 Oct;9(10):2683-91.In this structure-affinity relationship (SAFIR) study, the bioisosteric potential of diazines in the field of ferruginine-type nAChR ligands was investigated. Novel enantiopure analogues of (-)-Ferruginine (3) such as 6-8 were synthesized utilizing enantiomerically pure N-protected (+)-2-tropanone 9 from the 'chiral pool' as versatile chiral building block and a palladium-catalyzed Stille cross-coupling of the tributylstannyl diazines 12, 14 and 16 with the vinyl triflate 11 of (+)-2-tropanone 9.
