Abstract: The synthesis of a small library of dihydrouracils spiro-fused to pyrrolidines is described. These compounds are synthesized from b-aryl pyrrolidines, providing products with the 2-arylethyl amine moiety, a structural feature often encountered in compounds active in the central nervous system. The b-aryl pyrrolidines are synthesized through a three-step methodology that includes a Knoevenagel condensation reaction, a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction, and a nitrile reduction.
Keywords: Knoevenagel condensation; 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition; azomethine ylide; parallel synthesis; spiro dihydrouracils
