Abstract

To further explore the structure-activity relationships (SARs) of certain tropanes, and to gain insights into the structural features required for high activity and selectivity at norepinephrine transporters (NET), we have introduced both five- and six-membered heteroaromatic moieties such as substituted pyridyl, pyrazinyl, pyrimidyl, thiazolyl, and mono- or disubstituted thienyl groups into conformationally constrained, tricyclic tropane analogues. A number of (Z)-9-(heteroarylmethylene)-7-azatricyclo[4.3.1.03,7]decanes were synthesized, and their abilities to block dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine reuptake by their respective transporters were evaluated. It was found that the five- or six-membered N-containing aromatics are too basic to display high NET activity, while some of the thiophene analogues were identified as potent and selective NET inhibitors.
