Synthesis of 2-(4-{2-[(2R)-2-Cyclopentyl-5-(5,7-dimethyl-[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-2-ylmethyl)-4-hydroxy-6-oxo-3,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-yl]-ethyl}-2-fluoro-phenyl)-2-methyl-propionitrile on multikilogram scale using a merging Heck coupling reaction. Compound is an inhibitor of the hepatitis C viral polymerase (HCVP) enzyme.

Synthesis of the pyrazolopyridinone-based p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase inhibitor including a Suzuki coupling reaction. p38 MAP kinases are intercellular serine/threonine kinases which certainly regulate the production and action of several pro-inflammatory mediators. They are also involved in disease states such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s diseases and psoriasis.
