Abstract: A new series of plasmepsin II (PM II) inhibitors has been prepared based on 4-aminopiperidine-tert-butyl-carbamate (1). These compounds might be useful as antimalarial drugs acting via a new mechanism, and therefore be less susceptible to parasite resistance now often observed with current antimalarial therapies. Some of the final compounds prepared exhibited encouraging inhibitory activity towards PM II.
