A Facile Synthesis of 2-Amino-5-Cyano-4, 6-Disubstitutedpyrimidines under MWI
Microwave Assisted Organic Synthesis (MAOS) is energy efficient and effective tool to speed up the synthesis for drug discovery process. In the present study we report a novel protocol for the rapid, high throughput synthesis of mononuclear 2-amino-5-cyano-4,6-disubstituted pyrimidines, adaptable to parallel synthesis for compound libraries. The overall reaction time in hrs has been reduced to 25 - 50 minutes with improved yields.
