abstract

  • New carbon-11 and fluorine-18 labeled N-acetyl-1-aryl-6,7-dimethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives were designed and synthesized as potential positron emission tomography AMPA (2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazol-4-yl)propionic acid) receptor ligands to image brain diseases. The single crystal structure of the most potent compound N-acetyl-1-(4'-chlorophenyl)-6,7-dimethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline (5a) is first reported.
