Abstract: In this paper, a novel synthetic method for Palbociclib was reported. It was synthesized in eight steps from 2-(methylthio) pyrimidin-4-(3H)-one with approximately 10% overall yield. This protocol started material 2-(methylthio) pyrimidin-4-(3H)-one, involved nucleophilic substitution by thionyl chloride, bromination, nucleophilic substitution by cyclopentylamine, a one pot-two step method (Heck reaction, ring close sequence), oxidation and bromination, cross-coupling reaction, Heck reaction, aqueous workup to afford Palbociclib. This synthetic route used inexpensive raw material and reagents, involved readily controllable reaction conditions and reduced environmental hazards. Synthesis of Palbociclib, a small molecule CDK inhibitor, starting from 2-(methylthio) pyrimidin-4-(3H)-one by 8 steps reaction. This method afforded the Palbociclib in 10% yield.
