Abstract:

This paper describes the development of a practical, efficient and reproducible preparation of ASK1 inhibitor GS-4997 (Selonsertib). Our efforts were committed to designing and developing a novel synthetic strategy. The novel route involved high-yielding preparation of 5-(4-cyclopropyl-1H-imidazole-1-yl)-2-fluoro-4-methylbenzoic acid (5) through adjusting reaction sequence, and the one-pot procedure for the synthesis of 6-(4-isopropyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl) pyridin-2-amine (7). The developed process provided an overall yield of 45.8%, which enabled us to rapidly synthesize multi-gram quantities of GS-4997 in 99.3% purity.
