Programmed multiple C-H bond functionalization of the privileged 4hydroxyquinoline template

Abstract : The introduction of substituents on bare heterocyclic scaffolds can selectively be achieved by directed C-H functionalisation. However, such methods have only occasionally been used, in an iterative manner, to decorate various positions of a medicinal scaffold to build chemical libraries. We herein report the multiple, site selective, metal-catalyzed C-H functionalisation of a "programmed" 4-hydroxyquinoline. This medicinally privileged template indeed possesses multiple reactive sites for diversity-oriented functionalisation, of which four were targeted. The C-2 and C-8 decorations were directed by an N-oxide, before taking benefit of an O-carbamoyl protection at C-4 to perform a Fries rearrangement and install a carboxamide at C-3. This also released the carbonyl group of 4-quinolones, the ultimate directing group to functionalise position 5. Our study highlights the power of multiple C-H functionalisation to generate diversity in a biologically relevant library, after showing its strong antimalarial potential.
