Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

Di- and trisubstituted pyrimidine libraries are prepd. in good yields by the microwave irradn. of an alkynone R1C≡CCOR2 [R1 = H, Ph; R2 = Ph, 4-MeOC6H4, 3,4-(MeO)2C6H3, etc.] and either an amidine or guanidine at 120-150° in acetonitrile in the presence of sodium carbonate or at 100° after treatment with methanolic sodium methoxide in a sealed tube using a monomodal microwave synthesizer. These rapid and efficient methods often require no chromatog. purifn. and so are appropriate for automated combinatorial methodol. and have been applied in the synthesis of a small library of potentially useful novel ligands for the estrogen receptor based on the pyrimidine template.
