There is an urgent medical need for novel antibacterial agents to treat hospital infections, specially those caused by multidrug-resistant Gram-positive pathogens. The need may also be fulfilled by either exploring antibacterial agents having new mechanism of action or expanding known classes of antibacterial drugs. The paper describes a new chemical entity, compound 21, derived from hitherto little known “floxacin”. The choice of the entity was made from a series of synthesized prodrugs and salts of the active chiral benzoquinolizine carboxylic acid, S-(−)-nadifloxacin. The chemistry, physicochemical characteristics, and essential bioprofile of 21 qualifies it for serious consideration as a novel drug entity against hospital infections of multi-drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and its progress up to clinical phase I trials in humans is described.
S-(−)-Nadifloxacin is S-(−)-9-fluoro-6,7-dihydro-8-(4-hydroxypiperidin-1-yl)-5-methyl-1-oxo-1H,5H-benzo[i,j] quinolizine-2-carboxylic acid (1). Prodrugs and aqueous soluble salts of 1were synthesized and explored for possible use in parenteral or oral formulations………….De Souza, N. J.; Agarwal, S. K.; Patel, M. V.; Bhawsar, S. B.; Beri, R.

quinolones has now grown to four generations, the first generation to nalidixic acid is represented as the representative of the second generation to PPA, only the Gram-negative bacteria effectively, the third generation is the development of these drugs the peak period, there has been a lot of drugs, and is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which to norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and other representatives. The fourth-generation quinolone antibiotics is in the third generation on the basis of a broad spectrum of antibacterial spectrum further expanded to make it available against mycoplasma and chlamydia infections.
 R & D has been relatively popular domestic antibiotics, the most widely used on the market today is the third generation fluoroquinolones. Nadifloxacin developed by the Japanese company Otsuka, belongs to the third-generation quinolone antibacterial drugs, topical treatment of acne and folliculitis. 1993 for the first time in Japan (trade name: Acuatim), 2004 in the German market (trade name: Nadixa), 2005 in China listed (trade name: By Union, ointment).
 nadifloxacin irritation due to its absorption and vascular problems, only made of topical formulations for in vitro Propionibacterium acnes (propionibacterium acnes) caused by acne. Wherein the S-(-) – that is the main role difloxacin isomer, the antibacterial activity of the R-isomer of 64 to 256 times that of racemic 2 times.
 fine that gatifloxacin is S-(-) _ nadifloxacin salt on the basis of the system.Significantly improved solubility nadifloxacin well absorbed by the body, so it retains nadifloxacin broad spectrum antimicrobial, antibacterial activity, especially methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Effective characteristics (Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2004,3188 ~ 31920; J. Med. Chem. 2005 (48), 5232 ~ 5242). Pre-clinical tests prove that the product on the market anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Antibiotic better compare the efficacy, including vancomycin, trovafloxacin, quinupristin + dalfopristin, linezolid amine.
 fine molecular structure that gatifloxacin following formula:
 S-(-) _ nadifloxacin (C19H21FN2O4) with L-arginine salt, the further improve the play a major role in antibacterial s-(-) – nadifloxacin isomer content, and improved oral bioavailability, so that it can develop an oral or injectable preparations.
 the literature (J. Med. Chem. 2005 (48), 5232 ~ 5242) discloses the synthesis of S_ (_) _ Nadifloxacin-L-arginine salt, S-(-) _ that fluoride gatifloxacin and L-arginine salt in the reaction solvent system, which solvent system is mainly methanol – water system, according to the paper reported in S-(-) – Nadifloxacin-L-arginine salt, yields were and related substances are not high enough.

A Practical Synthesis of (S)-(-)-Nadifloxacin : Novel Acid-Catalyzed Racemization of Tetrahydroquinaldine Derivative
(S)-(-)-Nadifloxacin [(S)-(-)-9-fluoro-6, 7-dihydro-8-(4-hydroxy-1-piperidyl)-5-methyl-1-oxo-1H, 5H-benzo[i, j]quinolizine-2-carboxylic acid, (S)-(-)-OPC-7251], an antibacterial agent, was synthesized from (S)-(-)-5, 6-difluoro-2-methyl-1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydroquinoline (DFTQ), which was prepared by the optical resolution of recemic DFTQ with 2, 3-di-O-benzoxyl-L-tartaric acid. Racemization of the undesired enantiomer [(R)-(+)-DFTQ] was studied in the presence of various acids and the best result was obtained in the case of methanesulfonic acid. The absolute configuration of (-)-nadifloxacin was determined as S by X-ray crystallographic analysis.
