Analogues of CF3-Pyridine for Drug Design
More than 100 FDA-approved drugs contain pyridine ring and another 100 have been in clinical trials. Examples containing CF3-pyridine moiety include the antiviral drug Tipranavir and drug candidates Taranabant, Velneperit,
SB-705498. Besides, CF3-pyridine containing compounds have been playing a fundamental role in agrochemistry. The introduction of fluorine-containing group alters important pharmacokinetic properties of molecular scaffolds. Herein we have designed and synthesized a library of CF3-substituted pyridine analogues for drug design and agrochemistry.
