Parallel Synthesis - Reductive Amination of Aldehyde Group
Parallel optimisation of reductive amination of substitutedfurane-2-aldehydes to 2-dialkylaminofuranes (4 x 24 sam-ples) by using the BÜCHI Syncore Reactor with its Filtra-tion Unit. The reaction itself, drying and evaporation of or-
ganic extracts are accelerated by using Syncore.

Among the strategies used in the modern ceeds heterogeneously (at room temperature in DCM or DCE), organic synthesis to incorporate this group into a desired and good shaking of the reaction mixture is absolutely crucial molecule (see scheme 1) the well-known reactions are 1 Mannich aminomethylation,2 alkylation of amines by suitable electrophilic reagents of the Reductive amination of aldehydes with Syncore.
type R-CH -X (containing chlorometyl and analogous groups) In our experiments we have tested the reactivity of several 5- arylfurane-2-aldehydes (from Bayer Healthcare proprietary Synthone collection) in the reductive amination reaction. Intotal we have tested 9 aldehydes and 18 secondary aliphaticamines. The solutions of the aldehydes (15 mmol in 5 ml) andamines (15 mmol in 2 ml) in CH Cl were mixed in 24 Syncore flasks and were shaken for 30 minutes. In order to establishcomplete equilibrium for this first step it is advisable to allowreaction mixtures to stay overnight.The portions of 3 ml ofsuspension of Na[BH(OAc) ] in CH Cl were added into each of the 24 tubes. It is strongly recommended to place eachtube into the ultrasonic bath for a short period (2-3 minutes) tohomogenise the mixture.
The flasks were shaken on the Syncore for 2-3 days at 20 oC.
In some cases the heterogeneous process have required up Scheme 1: Reactions to trimethylamino derivatives to 5 days for completing.

The organic solutions underwent parallel filtering using theBÜCHI Filtration Unit (see pict. 1) under the dry nitrogen at-mosphere.
The parallel cleaning of tubes and filters from drying agent wasperformed by passing 2 times 30 ml of water, 2 times 30 ml ofacetone and finally the flow of nitrogen to dry the device.
