from "chemistry section" 3,4-Dimethoxybenzaldehyde is reacted with nitromethane in the presence of ammonium acetate/acetic acid to give the corresponding β-nitrostyrene, which is then reduced with LiAlH4 to give 3,4-dimethoxyphenethylamine.
DMPEA is used as a precursor in the synthesis of a plethora of pharmaceutical drugs, including:
Bisobrin, Bometolol, Buquiterine, Denopamine, Dobutamine, Dopamine, Dopexamine, Dramedilol, Drotaverine, Ecastolol, Falipamil, Gallopamil, Methopholine, Mixidine, Mefeclorazine, Nuciferine, papaverine, Tetrabenazine, Tiapamil, trimethoquinol, Veradoline, verapamil.
- DMPEA was recently used to prepare Erythrina Alkaloid Analogues as Neuronal Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Antagonists.
