Verubecestat (MK-8931) is a small-molecule inhibitor of beta-secretase cleaving enzyme (BACE) 1 and BACE2 in development by Merck for the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease. MK-8931 is a beta-secretase 1 (BACE1) inhibitor in phase III development for the treatment of amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) due to Alzheimer's disease at Merck & Co. The company is also conducting phase II/III trials for the treatment of Alzheimer's type dementia.

The amine A (Scheme 3a, step 4) (13.7 g) in n-butanol (150 mL) was added a slurry solution of cyanogen bromide (5M, in MeCN). The resulting mixture was heated to reflux for 4 hours. The mixture was concentrated to 1/3 of original volume. To this mixture was added Et20 (200 mL). The resulting solid was removed by filtration, and the solid was washed with Et20 (2x). The solid was partitioned between EtOAc and saturated Na2CO3 (aq). The aqueous layer was extracted with EtOAc (3x). The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over Na2SO4, filtered and concentrated to give 10.6 g Scheme 10:
The nitro compound (Scheme 3b) (2. 50 g, 6. 0 mmol) of Et0H (150 mL) was degassed (To this solution was bubbled with nitrogen time 3 min). To this solution was added Pd / C (10% w / w, 50% water, 698 mg). The mixture was placed in a nitrogen atmosphere. Exhaust, and backfilled with H2 (3x). The obtained mixture at room temperature, followed by stirring under H2 balloon for 2 hours. Bubbling nitrogen gas, and the mixture was purged, filtered through Celite, and concentrated.Small plug filtered through a silica gel column, eluting with EtOAc, and the product was purified to give the aniline (2. 2g, 97%).

These steps were performed using similar procedures to those described in steps 1-4 of Scheme 1a.
To a solution of the amine from step 4 (10.5 g, 36 mmol) in CH2Cl2 (200 mL) was added benzoylisothiocyanate (4.3 mL, 1.1 eq.). The resulting solution was stirred at RT for 2.5 days. Additional benzoylisothiocyanate (0.86 mL, 0.2 eq.) was added and the solution was stirred at RT for an additional 2 hours. The solution was then concentrated in vacuo.
A portion of this material (6.5 g, ˜14 mmol) was dissolved in MeOH (200 mL). To this solution was added Na2CO3 (s) (1.52 g, 14 mmol). The resultant mixture was stirred at RT for 45 min. After that time, a slight excess of HOAc was added to the solution. The mixture was then concentrated. The residue was partitioned between CH2Cl2 and ½ sat. NaHCO3 (aq.). The aqueous layer was extracted with CH2Cl2 (3×). The combined organic layers were dried over Na2SO4, filtered and concentrated. The thiourea (˜4.9 g) was carried onto the next reaction without further purification.
Example 15 was prepared using a method similar to that described in Scheme 1a step 6.
A mixture of the bromide (3.00 g, 6.92 mmol), benzophenone imine (1.39 mL, 8.30 mmol), Pd2(dba)3 (0.634 g, 0.692 mmol), John-Phos (0.413 g, 1.38 mmol), sodium tert-butoxide (2.13 g, 22.1 mmol), and toluene (51 mL) was degassed (vacuum/N2). The mixture was then stirred at 65° C. under nitrogen for 3 h. After this time, the reaction mixture was cooled to room temperature and filtered through a pad of Celite and rinsed with ethyl acetate (100 mL). The filtrate was concentrated under reduced pressure. The residue was then dissolved in methanol (76 mL) and the resulting solution was charged with hydroxyl amine hydrochloride (2.16 g, 31.1 mmol) and sodium acetate (2.55 g, 31.1 mmol). The reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature for 40 min. After this time, the reaction mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure. The resulting residue was dissolved in ethyl acetate (200 mL) and washed with saturated aqueous sodium bicarbonate (100 mL), water (100 mL), and brine (100 mL). The organic layer was then dried over anhydrous sodium sulfate, filtered, and concentrated under reduced pressure. The residue was purified by column chromatography (silica, 0-100% ethyl acetate/heptane) to afford the amino pyridine (0.880 g, 34%).

He was only in first standard in school when I was hit by a deadly one in a million spine stroke called acute transverse mylitis, it made me 90% paralysed and bound to a wheel chair, Now I keep him as my source of inspiration and helping millions, thanks to millions of my readers who keep me going and help me to keep my son happy
