Abstract

The development and implementation of a scalable process for the manufacture of the Toll-like receptor (TLR7) agonist PF-4171455 (1) is described. Initial routes used to synthesise 1 in milligram quantities were unsuitable for large-scale synthesis to provide bulk material. As part of the transfer between Medicinal Chemistry and Research-API, collaboration provided a fit for purpose route for the kilo-scale synthesis of 1. Key aspects of the synthesis included (i) a safe and practical synthesis of a key nitropyridone intermediate 7 over four steps, (ii) a sequential regioselective chlorination to selectively functionalise 7 and (iii) use of a carbamate as a tethered carbonyl group, allowing an efficient regiospecific synthesis of 1.
