Abstract

Given the usefulness of atropisomers within both asymmetric catalysis and pharmaceuticals, a thorough computational study of substituted α-(N-2-quinolonyl)ketones has been conducted. This class of tertiary amides is unique, as the amide is embedded within an aromatic construct, and the nitrogen bears an aliphatic substituent. Using a computational approach, 8′-substituted quinolones were identified as potential class 2 and 3 atropisomeric targets with calculated C–N rotational barriers of greater than 20 kcal/mol. These results, along with experimental efforts toward the synthesis of these targets, are reported.
