Full Text DESCRIPTION
PROCESS FOR PRODUCING OPTICALLY ACTIVE OXOHEPTENOIC ACID ESTER
Technical Field
[0001] The present invention relates to a process for producing an optically active (E)-7-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl)quinolin-3-yl]-5-hydroxy-3-oxohept-6-enoic acid ester which is an intermediate for synthesizing (3R, 5S, 6E)-7-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl) quinolin-3-yl]-3,5-dihydroxyhept-6-enoic acid salt useful for prevention and treatment of hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis or the like.
Background Art
[0002] It is known that an optically active (E)-7-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl) quinolin-3-yl]-5-hydroxy-3-oxohept-6-enoic acid ester (hereinafter referred to as compound (III)) of formula (III)
(Formula Removed)
wherein R is an alkyl having 1 to 4 carbon atoms which is a desired compound of the present invention, is produced by reacting (E)-3-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl)-quinolin-3-yl]-prop-2-en-1-al (hereinafter referred to as compound (II)) of formula (II)
(Formula Removed)
with diketene in an organic solvent in the presence of an optically active Schiff base-titanium complex prepared by reacting an optically active Schiff base with a titanium compound (Japanese Patent Laid-open No. Hei 8-92217).
[0003] In addition, Tetrahedron Asymmetry, Vol. 11, 2255-2258 (2000) and Tetrahedron Asymmetry, Vol. 12, 959-963 (2001) describe processes for producing an optically active alcohol by reacting 1,3-bis(trimethylsilyloxy)-1-alkoxybuta-1,3-diene (hereinafter referred to as compound (I)) of formula (I)
(Formula Removed)
wherein R is an alkyl having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, with an aldehyde in the presence of an optically active binaphthol-titanium complex.
[0004] However, the process disclosed in Japanese Patent Laid-open No. Hei 8-92217 is troublesome as it requires a plurality of steps for preparing the optically active Schiff base-titanium complex. Further, the optical purity of compound (III) produced by the process is about 78% ee, therefore a further optical resolution is required for obtaining compound (III) having such a high optical purity that it can be used as an intermediate for synthesis.
[0005] In addition, the process disclosed in Tetrahedron Asymmetry, Vol. 11, 2255-2258 (2000) and Tetrahedron Asymmetry, Vol. 12, 959-963 (2001) give desired compounds in a relatively high yield and optical purity, but it requires not only strict reaction conditions, such as distillation and purification of a solvent to be used but also an addition of a molecular sieve dried at a high temperature during the preparation of the complex. Thus, it is hard to regard the process as a practical one.
Disclosure of Invention
[0006] To dissolve the above-mentioned problems, the present inventors have made extensive research and have found out that the optical purity and reaction yield are greatly improved by adding a metal salt and various amines in a reaction system between compound (I) and compound (II) in the presence of an optically active binaphthol-titanium complex which can be easily prepared by reacting 1,1'-bi-2-naphthol with titanium tetraisopropoxide. Further, it was found out that desired compounds (III) are produced in an optical purity of 99% ee or more and a yield of 85% or more by subjecting the reaction mixture to desilylation in the reaction system as it is.
[0007] That is, the present invention relates to a process for producing an optically active (E)-7-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl) quinolin-3-yl]-5-hydroxy-3-oxohept-6-enoic acid ester of formula (III)
(Formula Removed)
wherein R is an alkyl having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, which comprises reacting 1,3-bis(trimethylsilyloxy)-1-alkoxybuta-1,3-diene of formula (I)
(Formula Removed)

wherein R is as defined above, with (E)-3-[2-cyclopropyl-4-(4-fluorophenyl)-quinolin-3-yl]-prop-2-en-1-al of formula (II)
(Formula Removed)

[0017] The amount used of the amine depends on the kind of amine used, the amount of optically active binaphthol-titanium complex and the metal salt which are added together, or the concentration of reaction solution, but in a case where N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine is used, it is used in an amount of 0.03 to 2.0 mol,
preferably 0.1 to 1.2 mol from a viewpoint of effect on the post-treatment of the reaction based on 1 mol of compound (II).
[0018] If the amine does not take part in the reaction, it can be added in the step for producing compound (I).
[0019] When lithium chloride and N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine are used for producing compound (III) according to the present invention, the amount used of them depends on the amount of optically active binaphthol-titanium complex added together or the concentration of the reaction solution, but is 0.03 to 1.0 mol of lithium chloride and 0.03 to 2.0 mol of N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine, preferably 0.1 to 0.4 mol of lithium chloride and 0.1 to 1.2 mol of N,N,N\N'-tetramethylethylenediamine based on 1 mol of compound (II).

[0021] The organic solvent used is not specifically limited unless it takes part in the reaction, and generally ether solvents such as tetrahydrofuran, diethyl ether or diisopropyl ether can be used, and tetrahydrofuran is preferable. The amount used of the organic solvent is not specifically limited, and is generally 1 to 100 times (mass ratio), preferably 5 to 30 times (mass ratio) based on compound (II).
[0022] The reaction temperature depends on the kind and amount of the organic solvent used, and is generally -20 to 55°C, preferably 0 to 45°C.
[0023] The reaction time depends on the concentration of compound (II) used, the kind and amount of optically active binaphthol-titanium complex and solvent used, the reaction temperature and the like, and is generally 2 to 12 hours, preferably 2 to 6 hours.
[0024] Upon completion of the reaction, the reaction is ceased by adding water or various aqueous solutions to the reaction mixture and stirring. In general, water, aqueous solution of sodium bicarbonate, saline solution, aqueous solution of sodium carbonate, aqueous ammonia, aqueous solution of tartrate or the like can be used, and aqueous solution of sodium bicarbonate or saline solution is preferable. The concentration thereof is not specifically limited, but aqueous solution of sodium bicarbonate is preferably used in a concentration of 3.5% to saturation, and saline solution is preferably used in a concentration of 10% to saturation.

in amount of 0.1 to 10 times (volume ratio), preferably 0.1 to 5 times (volume ratio) based on the reaction mixture.
[0025] The method for extracting the reaction product from the reaction mixture depends on the kind of the reaction solvent. In a case where tetrahydrofuran is used as solvent for reaction, the reaction product is extracted with an organic solvent after evaporating tetrahydrofuran under a reduced pressure. The organic solvent is not specifically limited unless it is freely miscible with water, and ethyl acetate, diethyl ether, toluene and the like can be used, and ethyl acetate is preferable. The amount used of the organic solvent is not specifically limited, and is generally 0.1 to 10 times (volume ratio), preferably 0.5 to 2 times (volume ratio) based on the reaction mixture.
[0026] For the removal of silyl group from the reaction product and the purification of compound (III) produced by the removal of the silyl group, a salt of compound (III) with an acid is precipitated by adding the acid to the above-mentioned extraction solution and stirring, and the precipitated salt is filtered off. The acid used may be an inorganic acid such as sulfuric acid or hydrochloric acid, and is preferably sulfuric acid.
