Pyrrolidinones derived from (S )-pyroglutamic acid. Part 2.1 Conformationally constrained kainoid analogues

Author affiliations


Novel conformationally constrained glutamate analogues are readily available from (S )-pyroglutamic acid using a bicyclic lactam as a synthetic template; diastereocontrolled modification of the pyrrolidine ring using a sequential conjugate addition–substitution strategy permits access to several kainoid analogues in a versatile strategy. The pyrrolidinone ring conformation appears to be controllable by the nature of remote substituents on the heterocyclic ring.
