To synthesize one Ugi adduct following the EXPLAN005 . The compound will contribute toward a library for enoyl reductase inhibitors.


A Ugi reaction was carried out in a 1 dram vial labeled 1. Vial 1 contained methanol (500uL), o-vanillin (0.5mmol, 76.1mg), benzylamine (0.5mmol, 53.6uL), Boc-Trp-OH (0.5mmol, 152.1mg), and n-pentylisocyanide (0.5mmol, 62.9 uL), added in that order.


The results show that no precipitate was formed after 24 hours.


This Ugi Product will be recorded as "No Precipitate Formed" on our records of tested Ugi products. Until further testing proves otherwise, we must assume this as a negative Ugi Reaction.


It is difficult to conclude anything from this experiment other than that this particular Ugi Reaction showed no success in forming a precipitate. There is no noticeable pattern as of now on which Ugi reactions will be positive and yield precipitates.
(No visual proof provided in the results section - experiment will have to be repeated showing pics immediately after mixing and several days later)



16:10: Weighed out o-Vanillin (76.1mg) directly into dram vial.
16:15: Weighed out Boc-Trp-OH (152.1mg) on weighing paper
16:17: Added methanol (500uL) into the dram vial, followed by 30 seconds vortexing.
16:20: Added amine into the dram vial, followed by 15 seconds vortexing.
16:23: Added acid into the dram vials, followed by 30 second vortexing.
16:27: Added isocyanide into the dram vials followed by 15 second vortexing.
16:28: Let vials sit in fume hood overnight
