Abstract: A methodological study devoted to the Mannich-like multicomponent synthesis of the antiplatelet agent (±)‑clopidogrel (7) and the ethyl ester analogue 6 is described. The process involves the formation of 2-chlorophenyl zinc bromide (2) and its subsequent reaction with an alkyl glyoxylate and 4,5,6,7-tetrahydrothieno[3,2-c]pyridine (3). We demonstrate that the organozinc reagent 2 also constitutes a very convenient nucleophile for the multicomponent synthesis of the benzylamine core of ticlopidine (9).
Keywords: multicomponent reactions; organozinc reagents; amino acids; cobalt; zinc
