Synthesis and biological evaluation of 2-alkyl-2-methoxymethyl-salvinorin ethers as selective ?-opioid receptor agonists.


ABSTRACT: The synthesis of a new series of C-2-alkyl-2-methoxymethyl-salvinorin ethers and their binding affinities at ?-, ?-, and ?-opioid receptors are presented. We have developed a synthesis that enables installation of alkyl-substituents at C-2 while maintaining the integrity of the C-2 methoxymethyl ether and retaining ?-opioid receptor binding activity. Among these new compounds, 2-methyl-2-methoxymethyl-salvinorin ether (9a) is a potent full agonist at the ? receptor and shows comparable potency in Ki and EC50 with salvinorin A and U50488H. These C2-alkylated analogs have been identified as full ? agonists.
