Turkish Journal of ChemistryShort and Effective Synthesis of a Thiophene Analogue of (\pm)-4-Ipomeanol and Its Biological Evaluation
Department of Pharmacy. Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Butenandtstr. 5-13,
Abstract: The thiophene analogue of (\pm)-4-ipomeanol (1) was prepared in 2 steps starting from 3-iodothiophene and pent-4-yn-2-ol. The key steps were a Sonogashira reaction, followed by HgO catalysed hydratisation of the triple bond. The resulting thiophene was tested in the MTT assay for its cytotoxic activity against HL 60 cells.
Key Words: Sonogashira reaction, 4-ipomeanol, cytotoxic activity, MTT assay
