Solid phase synthesis of 1, 2-disubstituted-6-nitro-1,4-dihydroquinazolines is described. The new tetrafunctional scaffold N-Alloc-3-amino-3-(2-fluoro-5- nitrophenyl)propionic acid was prepared by nitration of 3-amino-3-(2- fluorophenyl)propionic acid. The scaffold was anchored to Rink resin via its carboxylic group and treated with primary amines to displace the arylfluorine followed by cyclization with aryl isothiocyanates in the presence of DIC upon Alloc deprotection to afford 1,2-disubstituted-6-nitro-1,4-dihydroquinazolines in high yield.
