Tropinone => 2-CMT


Hi,

I'm new to this forum, and I apologize if this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything when searching around. Can someone assist me in explaining what is required to convert Tropinone to 2-CMT, or is one better off to just synthesize 2-CMT instead of dealing with Tropinone?

thanks

Genie1

Mood: methyl 2-amino-3-chlorobutanoate

Are you trying to synthesise cocaine?
1) You could have searched in google
2) It really is very trivial, with simple enolate formation and esterification
3) For the above... are you sure you're interested in the chemistry or are you just trying to synthesise drugs for no reason? Because I won't help at all with the latter.

Do you have a synthesis in mind? It's not that trivial

From tropinone it is trivial... at most you'd have to protect the amine but I think not even that is necessary

Yes but I was wondering how genie1 is thinking about it.

As interesting as this dialogue is, it is pretty clear that genie1 is interested in the product rather than the process. I am going to nominate for detritus.

2-CMT is used to synthesise cocaine and cocaine alone, i second deutritus.

hm... it can be used to synthesise cocaine analogs, that could be a very interesting work with a serious chemist.

Nothing to indicate genie1 is a serious chemist.
