Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


To synthesize the Src kinase inhibitor saracatinib, and optimize the synthetic process. Medthods: Saracatinib was synthesized from 2, 4, 6-trifluorobenzonitrile through procedures of ammonolysis, hydrolysis, cyclization, and substitution. Results and Conclusion: Saracatinib was synthesized with a total yield of 24.54%, and was verified by 1H-NMR and MS. This synthetic method was suitable for large-scale production.
