To optimize the reaction from
to make this
using Mettler Toledo's automated Minimapper. Forty eight reactions are run in parallel using four reactant (2.0M in methanol) in different solvents / concentration. This run was verified by Tom Osborne.
Make up 2M methanol solutions (25mL each) of starting materials -
(5.077mL ) Furfurylamine (4.418mL), Boc-glycine (8.759g) and tert-butyl isocyanide (5.655mL).
The following are added in this order in a reaction tube equipped with a filtration frit
1) The additional solvent (200uL methanol)
2) The benzaldehyde solution
3) The Furfurylamine solution
4) The Boc-Glycine solution
5) The tert-butyl isocycanide solution
Parameters to modify:
concentration - 0.07M, 0.2M and 0.4M
reagent excess - 1.0 and 1.2 equivalents
solvent (for 0.2 and 0.71 conc only): ethanol, acetonitrile, THF
This is 48 experiments total and they are listed in this
Yields listed in this
Averaging over the 6 tubes for a given solvent/concentration, methanol 0.4M, methanol 0.2M, ethanol/methanol 60/40 0.2M and acetonitrile/methanol 60/40 0.2M give the best yields, while the lower concentration 0.07M for all solvents and THF/methanol 60/40 0.2M give the lower yields.
The results of this experiment will have to be verified to confirm there reproducibility.
08:00 Made-up 2M solution of the starting materials in methanol.
11:20 Started the optimization run on Mettler Toledo's Minimapper. (Using Blue miniblock)
12:47 Minimapper completed liquid handling.
12:48 Removed the miniblock from the minimapper and placed it on the shaker (410rpm)
12:48 Shaker was turned off and the miniblock was removed from it.
12:50 Drained / Vacuumed off solvent from the filter tubes by performing a parallel filtration
13:00 Programmed the mini mapper to perform 1mL addition of methanol to each filter tube on the miniblock
13:25 Once addition of methanol was completed the miniblock was replaced on the shaker (600rpm)
13:40 Removed the miniblock from the shaker and drained/vacuumed off the solvent.
13:55 Programmed the mini mapper to perform 1mL addition of methanol to each filter tube on the miniblock for the second methanol wash
14:20 Once addition of methanol was completed the miniblock was replaced on the shaker (600rpm)
14:35 Removed the miniblock from the shaker and drained/vacuumed off the solvent, left the miniblock connected to the vacuum line.
15:15 The miniblock was removed from the vacuum line and placed in desiccator connected to high-vac.
