In order to address the current downturn in the drug discovery pipeline, initiatives are being undertaken to synthesise screening libraries of sp3-rich, low molecular weight compounds. As part of the European Lead Factory initiative, the synthesis and derivatisation of a simple hexahydrooxazolo[5,4-c]pyridin-2(1H)-one bicyclic carbamate has been achieved. The synthetic route employed involved a telescoped hetero-Diels-Alder/[2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement/cyclisation sequence to deliver the desired core scaffold containing two points for further diversification. When applied, this synthesis was found to be robust and scalable which allowed the production of a 155 compound library.
