Abstract

Four-component reactions between amino alcohols, aldehydes, isocyanides and thiols proceed rapidly under microwave or conventional heating at 60 °C in methanol. The reaction is successful with a wide range of components and gives access to potentially drug-like products containing amine, amide and thioether functionality in moderate to excellent yield. The reaction conditions are also applicable to the synthesis of a range of 8–10 membered medium ring lactones via three-component reactions of amino alcohols, isocyanides and acid-aldehydes. Incorporation of L-prolinol as the amino alcohol component in each case gives access to multicomponent products with moderate to high diastereoselectivity.
