Abstract: We describe in this study the asymmetric synthesis of radioisotope (RI)-labeled selective glucocorticoid receptor modulator. This synthesis is based on optimization of the cinchona alkaloid catalyzed addition of 6-bromoindole to ethyl trifluoropyruvate and Negishi coupling of zinc cyanide to the 6-bromoindole moiety. [14C] Labeled (−)-{4-[(1-{2-[6-cyano-1-(cyclohexylmethyl)-1H-indol-3-yl]-3,3,3-trifluoro-2-hydroxypropyl}piperidin-4-yl)oxy]-3-methoxyphenyl}acetic acid (−)-1 was synthesized successfully with high enantioselectivity ( > 99% ee) and sufficient radiochemical purity.
