Abstract

A concise and practical synthesis of praziquantel as anthelmintic drug is described. The key steps include a monoalkylation of ethanolamine for the preparation of 2-(2-hydroxyethylamino)-N-phenethylacetamide and a mild oxidation protocol with SO3-Py/DMSO as oxidant to transform alcohol into the corresponding aza-acetal. The telescoped synthesis is composed of five steps without purification of the intermediates, providing an overall yield of 80% with 99.8% purity after crystallization.
