Diversity-oriented-synthesis of cyclic polyamines

Our team is interested in the asymmetric synthesis of cyclic polyamines. In particular, we focus our attention on the preparation of five- or six-membered rings containing 1,3-diamine motifs for the following reasons:

  • Cyclic 1,3-diamines are found in a large amount of molecules possessing interesting biological activities, such as, for example, the ability to interfere with kinases, glycosidases, CNS receptors and various enzymes
  • Differently substituted polyamines can be considered as versatile water-soluble building blocks for the design of active substances by a fragment-based approach
  • Polyamines can serve as ligands for organometallic complexes.
