The synthesis of a series of 2-chloropyrimidine derivatives is described. The synthesis began with a nucleophilic addition of lithiated heterocyclic molecules to the 4 position of 2-chloropyrimidine to give dihydropyrimidine intermediates. The intermediates were oxidized to the pyrimidine ring using the DDQ method. This was followed by an addition-elimination reaction of an amine to the 2-chloropyrimidine derivative. The structure and properties of the final compounds were analyzed by melting point, combustion analysis, and 13C-NMR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy. Biological activities in vitro of the synthesized compounds as antagonists of the 5-HT2a and 5-HT7 receptors were determined by an independent laboratory.
