Abstract
A new efficient chiral synthesis of enantiopure arimoclomol (2) is reported from (R)-(-)-glycidyl nosylate (11) with complete retention of chiral integrity. Off-target pharmacology of arimoclomol (2) was evaluated against a representative set of drug targets and showed modest binding to a few kinases. Pharmacokinetic data was generated in vivo in mouse and showed a low brain : plasma ratio. These studies will be helpful towards a better understanding of the PK-PD relationship of 2 in disease models.
